After Hour Drop Off Facility
Many shops promote a quick/easy injector service that runs a cleaning solution through the injectors while they're still mounted in the engine. A more thorough (and expensive) process for severely clogged injectors requires removing the injectors and cleaning them on a machine designed for that purpose.

Fuel injectors clog when deposits build up over time and thousands of miles; when that happens, they don't deliver the fine mist of gas that provides maximum performance and efficiency. If that happens, you'll notice a loss of engine performance or lower fuel economy. The type of gasoline you use also can be a factor.

All gasoline is required to contain detergents that prevent carbon deposits, varnish and other gunk from forming in the fuel system, but not all brands use the same amount. Lower-priced brands often use only the minimum, but the so-called Top Tier brands use more detergents, and some vehicle manufacturers recommend them because of that.

How do you know you have a bad fuel injector?

There is actually a way to test a fuel injector without actually opening it. Here I will explain you how. Its really simple and doesn't require any real mechanical knowledge provided you know where your fuel injectors are located. No! they are not in the trunk or under the rear seat. They are under the hood, mounted to a fuel rail(s), and the rail is mounted on the cylinder head. V engines have two fuel rails mounted on each side of the cylinder head, and a most straight engines have one rail.

Locate your fuel injectors, once located, get a long rod or a long screw driver, put one end of the object on the fuel injector and place your ear close to the other side of the object and try to listen to the clicking sound.
