Injector Services

Fuel Injector Cleaning and Flow Testing Service

The overall purpose of having a cleaned and balanced set of injectors is to allow for optimum performance from your motor. The combination of irregular engine use and a fuel/oil mixture results in residue build up in your injectors. This can cause:

  • Reduced fuel flow or fuel flooding condition
  • Reduced fuel mileage
  • Rough idle
  • Reduced horsepower
  • Loss of top speed
  • Engine failure

Our ultrasonic fuel injector cleaning tank and computer-controlled fuel injector testing equipment can restore your dirty, clogged, or leaking fuel injectors to operate at the same level and standard as that of a new fuel injector. Your fuel injectors will be ultrasonically cleaned, flow tested and fitted with new O-rings, filter baskets, and pintle caps.

Injectors We Do Not Service

  • Diesel injectors
  • E-TEC injectors
  • FICHT injectors
  • GM Vortec CPI injector ‘spider’ assemblies
