When you invest in powerstroke injectors, you need to know how to clean them to be able to get your money’s worth.  Since the injectors are vital parts of the engine, they need to be kept in tip top condition, one of the best ways to do that is cleaning them from time to time. Below are some of the steps you should follow to clean your injectors.

To clean your powerstroke injectors, one of the things you will need to do is buy a fuel injector cleaner kit. You need to make sure that the kit is suitable for your vehicle either by asking the shop assistant or sending an email to the online retailer. It is a good idea to look for a package that comes with a PEA (polyetheramine) based fluid as this is very effective when it comes to breaking down the carbon and soot deposits that tend to clog the injector nozzles.

Another thing you will need to do when preparing to clean your powerstroke injectors is disconnect the fuel pump. You should take your time with this step. First, you need to brace the fuel pump before you apply a little force to remove the fuel injectors. After you have completed the detachment process, you can either connect the fuel return pipe to the fuel pump, or you can use a u-tube to funnel fuel back into the tank.

If you are concerned about the disconnect procedure, be sure to check out YouTube for a more illustrated view if you have a popular model, or you can try your manual again to see if you can get some guidance on the detachment procedure.
