    Injector cleaner spray?

    Do you mean the foam stuff you spray directly into the air intake with the ai box removed?

    Not seen an injector cleaner spray before.

    Never heard of it either, and don't know how spraying anything into the air intake could clean your fuel injectors effectively. I suppose it could remove some surface dirt on the outside of the housing, but what's the point of that? It's the injctor tip and internals you need to aim at.

    mate, if you can get it... protec 2000, it aint cheap but it works... put it in when the tank is low run it till nearly empty. Or even better neat!.
    This will shift any stuck cr8p.
    Other here have used stuff like STP etc.. all are ok, but use it as neat as you can for it to work.
    goodluck

    I use STP (the silver bottle is best), cleans injectors, valves etc, BUT use it at the correct dilution, i.e. one bottle in a FULL tank. Only Cataclean recommend putting it in an almost empty tank.

    chhers guys the chap in the shop told me to spray it directly into the buterfly valve at the back of the engine when you remove the air intake valve i think its the throttle body. what it is when i start my car up it fires up first time then trys to cut out then the revs shoot back up then it trys to cut out again it normally does this 3 times and when the choke finishes its fine. i took it to the dealer cus my emission light was on at the time they said they reset it and no fault codes where present but they said it could be the ecu

    Sounds like carb cleaner to me, kep the revs up and you will be fine, you will see the cr@p smoke out of the zorst. This stuff deffo wont clean the insides of the injectors though, as said just the additives you put in the fuel tank.
