If I was a admin I would have made a "how to" sticky with links to all the pictorial "how to's" that I've seen and found; and also label each link for the info it contains. There are tons of great threads out there but no one has made a concerted effort to organize them for the the 87-96 crowd... Not to name names, but it seems like we have quite a few people with over 10K posts now and would've thought one of them could be made a admin in order to make stickeys for us... Then again I don't know the pre-requisites for being an admin...

Just wanted to say I agree totally about at the minimum adding a link to this and several others to the Tech sticky. I wish they would add the alternator upgrade and Speedo Calibration posts to the tech sticky also. Excellent write Steve and though I am late to the game I'll be giving props to this thread. I'm going to start ordering things to do it. Now my truck is a 94 and has 200K miles on it, probably a good idea?

Depending on your engine it might be a lot of work! I know you need to remove the upper intake off the 302 and 351w engines. Is it good to do if you are already in there for maintence? YES... but should you do it if your engine is still running good... hmmm... if you got the time and determination... yeah I guess so. I rebuilt my 351w and it's still on a stand due to other hobby's and interests and cash flow slowing me down. If you really want to maximize your mpgs and clean your fuel system you should run a good gas mix to pick up all the crap out of your gas tanks, get a new fuel filter and do this clean out all at the same time. I'd probably run the fuel system cleaner for 2-3 gas tanks worth (and not the cheap stuff!) spend the money and get a 2-3 bottles of good fuel system cleaner! run the cleaner heavy... IE if it says "Will treat 25 gallons of gas" put it in 10-15 gallons.

That's my advice... others might contradict me...

Well what had happened was I drove a company truck for about 3 years and this one sat idle only being driven once a month or so. Then I quit the job and had to start driving this one regularly and the tranny started slipping and it barely ran without shaking. I went down and bought 4 bottles of Valvoline Synthetic Complete Fuel System Cleaner and filled both tanks with super unleaded. When they ran out I put the other two bottles in and filled again with super and the truck rn perffectly. So I have alwatys had my doubts about the necessity of cleaning them. The truck runs fine but if it would get me a little more mpg or torque I'd be willing to commit a weekend to it.

From what your saying I probably don't need to mess with it. I run the Valvoline cleaner at every oil change now.

Sorry, I`ve been on the run for quite a while now so I haven`t been able to pay this forum adequate attention. I have put this thread in the 1987 to 1996 Tech info sticky and if you throw some more tech info at me in this forum or pm`s I`ll put them in that sticky too.

RJM that I linked on the first page is down now so anyone reading this can use any Bosch EV1 injector rebuild kit off ebay or another website; just google bosch EV1 kit and you'l find plenty of places to buy the kit.

I would edit my first post but not allowed so this will have to do.

Found this thread while looking for ways to clean the injectors on a 5.3 C*****let I just acquired.

Snipped from online MSDS, which are a great way to find out "what's in stuff":
Quote:
MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET 3MTM Universal Fuel Injector Cleaner PN 08956

Section 313 Toxic Chemicals subject to the reporting requirements of that section and 40 CFR part 372 (EPCRA):
Ingredient C.A.S. No % by Wt
Ethylbenzene 100-41-4 3- 7
Toluene 108-88-3 30 - 60
Xylene 1330-20-7 10 - 30
Xylene (Benzene, 1,2-dimethyl-) 1330-20-7 10 - 30
Xylene (Benzene, 1,3-dimethyl-) 1330-20-7 10 - 30
Xylene (Benzene, 1,4-dimethyl-) 1330-20-7 10 - 30
Xylene (Benzene, dimethyl-) 1330-20-7 10 - 30
Methyl Alcohol 67-56-1 10 - 30
Xylene and Toluene are cheap at hardware stores, so that's what I'll be dipping in now I know those solvents are compatible.

All my cleaning will be performed OUTDOORS away from anything which matters. You don't want to hang out in toluene or xylene vapor. If anyone saw the episode of "Cops" with the paint huffers that's one end-state of too much solvent inhalation!
