    Post Fuel Injector Cleaner and CEL

    I decided to throw in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner as I am about to hit the 110 K mark on my MZ3. After about a hundred kilometers into the tank i noticed the CEL light come on and was just wondering if the injector cleaner may have caused it. I didn't notice any difference on how the car was driving although the car did feel a little sluggish but nothing out of the ordinary.

    I used fuel injector cleaner before, never had problems with it or getting a CEL. Just reset it, if it comes back again, pull out the code and that will give you an idea what is the problem.

    hahaha this thread reminded me of that idiot who put those energy drink in their gas tank hahahaha.

    +1 pull the code. Don't worry about it and just go get the code.

    I'm not too concerned yet but it's always disappointing to see your car throw a CEL when you try your best to keep it running well

    if you want.. try to reset your ECU by taking off negative terminal for 5 mins. Then hook it back on.
    If CEL comes back on.. then yeah.. get it pulled.
