dirty fuel injector

I was told that the fuel injector on my '00 lude was pretty dirty. it's got 144,000 miles on it (i bought it with 128k and i drive 35 miles to class every day) and i dont think it's ever been cleaned. i know that it can improve gas mileage and hp, but i was wondering if anyone could tell me how significant that could be. I'm always looking to save a little gas, but i'm not about to go throw $125 at these guys just to squeeze 1 more mpg out of it. any feedback it greatly appreciated

Re: dirty fuel injector

Go get some fuel injector cleaner (I prefer lucas fuel injector cleaner), wait till your about 1/4 or less on fuel, add reccommended amount of injector cleaner, go fill'er up with fresh gas. After that you might want to replace your fuel filter, if dirts clogging the injectors its likely the fuel filter needs replaced... Good luck

Seafoam!!! love the stuff, you can put it in your gas tank and it should clean ur injectors up.

also can run it through a vacumm line, or through your oil.. both of which clean different areas but ya none the less. seafoam!
