    Injector cleaning? DIY Ideas?

    Pretty sure I've narrowed my soft pulsing misfire down to a blocked injector, never happens on idle never on boost only ever at around 3k on part throttle. Anyway being lazy I'd normally just hook em out and send them off to be properly cleaned but got a trip up to Glouster this weekend and haven't got time, is there anything I can try and do to clear it up without an ultrasonic cleaner?
    Cheers

    Halfords and the like sell various additives similar to redex that you put in the tank that are meant to clean injectors not sure if there any good though

    Thanks Scott, I might still try and organise that sometime soon anyway. I'd really like you to have a pop at my DIS too, things are getting a bit hazy there!

    Have a chat to Phil, might be cool to sort out a injector cleaning time at his.

    Just waiting on some bits mate and I'll be in touch.
