First of all... DAMN $38.00 for an oil change!! Thats a rip-off, my honda dealership by me is $19.95. dont pay $40.00 for a filter just goto your local autoparts place and pick one up, ther no more than $10-$15. Thats really easy to do too. About the injectors though, are you the origanal owner? Or did you buy it from someone, if you did that did they ever get the injectors clean? Just something you might look into.

if u want a injector cleaning, do it urself..it costs 5 bucks...maybe they have the tech knowledge to open ur fuel rail and put cleaner directly through there...but i highly doubt it...

fuk it...and maybe u should try to tackle an oil change yourself...save u money for gas.

i dont think they mean just pouring that solution into the gas tank, cuz they told me 85 bucks so i'm sure its more than that

lol they arent expensive....

well i just rememberd...some fuel injection cleaners are soo good that they are bad and remain in your oil. this is why i use a fuel injection cleaner before every oil change so it wont stay in the oil.

if jifffy uses their strong stuff then it may remain in the oil....it may not effect ne thing much, but it may do something that you dont want it to do..

ill save u 80 bucks and buy 5 dollars of lucaus or chevron fuel injection cleaner...and then go change ur oil.
