HOW TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN FUEL INJECTORS

keeping fuel injectors clean

Variations of fuel injection systems have been the only option in production vehicles for decades, replacing carburetors because of their more accurate and precise fuel delivery.

The benefits have been improved vehicle performance, lower emissions and less maintenance.

But even the most modern fuel delivery systems can develop problems over time. It’s a good idea to know how these systems work and how to keep them in peak operating condition.

HOW TO CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS

Adding Sea Foam Motor Treatment to fuel is a fast, simple way to clean injectors, allowing them to perform properly.

Though you can’t actually see or access them without disassembly, fuel Injectors are generally pretty easy to maintain. The biggest problem is clogging of the injector tip, which can happen over time because of fuel contaminants and fuel degradation. Blocked injectors can lead to rough running, low power and other problems.

If you notice poor idle, problems with power, poor mileage, or a check engine light with a lean code or random misfire, ensure you have good fuel delivery by cleaning your injectors with Sea Foam Motor Treatment.

HOW TO FIX iT

HOW FUEL INJECTORS WORK

Fuel injectors perform the same fundamental task as their carburetor predecessors — delivering fuel to combustion chambers — they just do it in a very different way.

Injectors are part of an electronic engine management system. An engine control unit (ECU) monitors inputs such as engine temperature, rotation speed, and performance demand to determine spark and the timing of fuel delivery. Injectors deliver fuel in precise amounts and specific spray patterns, either directly into cylinders or through a manifold or throttle body.

Injectors are very simple internally, featuring a solenoid and needle valve. Because the ECU decides when and how long that solenoid is opened, injectors don’t require adjustments to deliver the same amount of fuel in every situation.

Injectors allow the engine to start more consistently, run smoother, run cleaner, and in many ways can be easier and safer to tune in performance applications. But they are not exempt from maintenance considerations.

How SEA FOAM helps
KEEP INJECTORS CLEAN

when added to fuel, sea foam works through fuel injectors to remove harmful residues and deposits from fuel passageways, pistons, and chamber areas.

With regularly used vehicles or equipment, adding Sea Foam Motor Treatment once every three months or every 3,000 miles will keep your fuel injection system clean. For infrequently used vehicles or equipment, add Sea Foam Motor Treatment every time you fill up the tank.

QUALITY OF PRODUCT

EXCELLENT STUFF

“I’ve had 9 Porsches over the past 30 years. Putting over two million miles on the lot of them. My present 911 has 491,000 miles on it. SeaFoam has been used constantly. I have never had an injector problem on any of my cars to date. The cost of gas, lately, has caused me to do less driving, which hurts a retired guy, that drives daily! I’m not an engineer, chemist, or a auto repair guy, but this stuff works!”

EFFECTIVENESS

SAVES ME PLENTY ON REPAIRS

“I have used sea foam in my 2009 ford e250. It has 230,000 miles on it. I have never changed the plugs, never changed or had problems with the fuel injectors. Engine runs just like new. Never changed the fuel pump. The engine has oil changes on time and air filter. That’s it. My yard equipment 3 snow blowers all around20 years old never a problem. Backpack blower, weed trimmer, generator all run like sewing machines. I do run non ethanol fuel in the yard equipment with the sea foam. I started one of the snow blowers that I had not started for four year. Started right up it did run ruff for a couple minutes. Once it got some new fuel in the system ran great.”

EFFECTIVENESS

THE BEST PRODUCT, HANDS DOWN

“My car had 5 fuel injectors clogged and beyond belief. If I wasn’t told about Sea Foam. Yes, I would have replaced the fuel injectors. It would have made sense. Each fuel injector was $80 each. The Sea Foam was less than $10 and some gas in the tank. Shortly after putting the Sea Foam in. My car ran like it had ever ran. Gas mileage improved, it ran smoother and saved a lot of money replacing the fuel injectors.”
