    Default Im at 109km do i need to service fuel injector and throttlebody?

    Im at 109km and ive replaced battery and sparkplugs at 107km and drivebelts , so those are the major tuneups ive done for the vehicle so lately ive been having.issues with the cars responsiveness when accelerating . Does it have anything to do with cleaning the fuel injector and throttlebody? I cant find it in the manual. Please let me know. Thanks

    Also note that cleaning the throttle body normally involves resetting the ECU to compensate for the different reading at the TB and or MAF sensor.

    Before going through the trouble and/or cost of a throttle body cleaning, I would suggest just purchasing a good Fuel system cleaner. Put it in your tank and run through the full tank before refueling, atleast too reason. Run it on the highway with a few redline runs cleaning out the carbon. Make sure the engine is at operating temp before doing redline runs.

    Also how is the condition of your air intake filter?

    If this doesn't solve the issue, then go ahead with the throttle body and reset procedure.

    I'm at 300k kms and have never touched my TB. I use Redline Fuel System Cleaner one full tank before every oil change, and have had no issues whatsoever. Response is great for what it is, and idle is smooth as silk.

    Redline is the brand name, its all I use. Its getting hard to find now though. I like to do it when I'm getting close to an oil change interval or 4 to 500 km before. I just put the full bottle in and then fill the tank, it'll mix. I run that tank almost to empty, like 2 or3 notches from E, and making sure I take it on the highway with some decent redline runs from the ramps to the highway. You'll be amazed the crap that blows out the exhaust and you'll smell it...Then I take it in for an oil change.

    It won't let me edit my last post, so...

    I forgot to mention you need to get the Redline Fuel System Cleaner, not the fuel injector cleaner. There is a difference.

    Redline SI-1 Fuel System Cleaner. That can be found in pmall.

    Also, you still need to clean your TB. It is a DIY and can be done within half an hour, so dont fork up the money for labor fees.

    Also if you havent done so, clean the MAF sensor. Takes 10 mins of your time.

    do I really need to wait for every oil change interval before I apply the redline fuel system cleaner?

    No, but you don't want to do it too often either. The only reason I wait till then, is I figure excessive carbon from the cleaning process could get into the oil and therefore contaminate it and the oil filter, and I want that out asap.

    There are many cleaners on the market. I have no info on Royal Purple, you may want to check out their website for info on their fuel cleaner. Read the instructions on the bottle for how much to use.

    Here's a link to Redline Fuel System Cleaner explaining a little bit why it's superior to other brands; https://www.helpful.reviews/en/produ...cleaner-review
