If you do change them it would be a good idea to use fuel injection cleaner 2 or 3 times a year.

Its amazing how the "technical service consultants" at the garage react when I spoke of the injection cleaner. They said that its better to get cleaner fuel than to put this cleaning agent into the tank. The damage, as they claimed to have seen, goes far worse than just stuffing up on the injectors that ultimately they concurred that a car runs better without the cleaners. In some cases, as they showed me a used injector, it cloggs the nozzle.

I think I will change the injectors in a week or so, and shall duly make my report known.

Meanwhile, I suppose it might be a good idea to reassess the debate on injection cleaners ...

Good day to all,
