    clean injectors

    when i bought my car i was told the injectors needed cleaning, is this easy to do? also could this cause the car to stall as yesterday the car was driving fine then it started juddering, kind of like kangarooing but at about 50mph then stalled and i had to pull over to start it, could the injectors be the cause? thanks

    to clean them 100% you need to take them out of the car an have them cleaned by a garage
    or you can just use a cleaner in with the petrol

    iv put some of this in http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...tegoryrn_58759
    not sure how long it will take to make a difference, iv used half a tank with it so far, do you think it is the injectors causing the problem?

    The only way to retore the best possible spray pattern is by ultra-sonic cleaning
