I have a spare set of 1995 injectors that I picked up at the yard today, and I wanted to know exactly how I clean the things. I am kinda curious whether my existing injectors are clogged or something.

What has already been done:

Stock 3.27 rear gears w/tlok
Seafoam
Stock Intake
Phenolic Intake Spacer
lost weight in my right foot.

I am changing the front O2 sensors and putting the correct speedometer gear in relatively soon, as well.

How do I go about cleaning these injectors? Should I even bother? Is there a way I can tell if the stock ones are clogged?

soak em in some solvent...or maybe seafoam.

a good quality gasoline, which im sure IS VERY readily available in california should clean out the pintles very easily.

look on the bottom as corrosion even if the were cleaned they will still hold a tarnish color..check the orings for cracks...cleaners melt rubber ...also look at the wire connector look for corrosion

From what I learned in school the only true way to clean Injectors fully is a sonic bath.

Seafoam can also be put into the gas tank. In fact, I put in about 1/3 of a can in the gas tank and the other 2/3 went into the vacuum hose (from booster). This may help some with cleaning injectors.

i'm asking because i have a set of injectors OUT OF THE CAR that I was considering reconditioning to see if that'd improve mileage etc etc.

anyhow, that's that.

A jewelry cleaning bath is a cheap way to get an ultrasonic setup...

Mine would only fit one injector at a time, but wtf... :)

I use it for cleaning all kinds of parts...

Works great for getting packing grease out of bolts or trigger assemblies...
