Cleaning injectors (presumably the additive you were given) is one option. Too few miles on teh car to need the injectors cleaned ... and when I had to do that the additive was supposed to be used once in the life-time of the car.

Someone with knowledge on injection systems will have to contribute here (I have only gone as far as carburettors). Regards Charles -- Please remove _removeme_ to reply.
