If it's only $20, then it's probably some guy pouring crap into your gas tank.

for 20 bucks they're probably just putting injection cleaner in your tank.

go buy some at your auto parts store yourself.

iam sure its one of those you put it in your gas tank.

real ones are bottle hooked up to your fuel line, and runs engine with it, without using gas from the tank.

Or, take off your injectors and have shop clean it up. it really helps.

Default Re: Fuel injection service at wal-mart, worth it??

I just called up wal-mart and the guy mentioned that they have some liquid that gets sucked up by the vac line and the second step is pouring that fuel injector liquid in the gas tank... All the car gets is 89oct from chevron, i am just gonna buy some chevron fuel injector cleaner and pour that in the gas tank. I did some researching and it seems like alot of poeple dont trust wal-mart's techs so i rather not risk it and be safer than sorry. THNX guys.

If the engine is showing symptoms of a bad injector, it wouldn't be a bad idea to remove the injectors and get them serviced.

Don't trust the "techs" at wal-mart hmmm I wonder why? Have you seen the F*cking people that work there. I am afraid to even park my car in a wal-mart parking lot let alone let any wal-mart employee touch my car with any intention of driving/doing any sort of matinence on it. I can't believe this is even a question.

$20 bucks for that service is a DEAL! My work charges 65.99 for the same stupid service.

Seafoam through the VAC is the same thing and cheaper. But at 100k on the clock, I would just go put SF through the gas tank.

don-cheto probably works at autozone and tells everyone that it's good stuff.

OP, why not remove your injectors and send them away to get flow tested and cleaned.

I used to work as a tech at Wal-Mart when I was in college and yes it's true, there are a lot that don't know **** but when all you do is oil changes and mounting tires... you really don't need to be a certified mechanic. The fuel injection service isn't a bad deal though, I did it on my own car once. It will be very smokey.

They hook up a bottle to a vacuum line and also pour a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank.
