This was Honda circa 2004. And yeah, my friend paid the $600.00 and was "told" that the injectors were physically taken apart and cleaned. hehe.

I dont understand what your saying to do here.

Disconnect the fuel line & hook the line up? What line do you hook up? the fuel line? Connect what leads to the battery?

- you have a bottle of injector cleaner with two connectors

- connector one is connected to your shop compressor and you pressurize the bottle to your normal fuel system psi

- disable your fuel pump

- disconnect fuel line from fuel rail

- connect the fuel rail to the second connector on the bottle of fuel injector cleaner

So at this point your injectors are disconnected from your normal fuel system and are connected to the pressurized bottle of fuel cleaner.

Start your car and run it until all the fuel cleaner is gone.

You are dealing with a fuel system that could result in severe burns or death. Perform at your own risk.

I've had good results using BG's 44k once a year in all my cars especially my very raced and abused '93 turbo Eclipse and when the head was removed after 8 years and 80k miles things were surprisingly clean and had minimal buildup anywhere. And only about 20 bux a can.
