My mechanic… who I trust, is reputable, and has a 5 star rating from the mechanics files here at Car Talk, wants to do this “Fuel Injection Service” on my 2007 Suzuki SX4 (currently, 182k miles). I think they said it would run about 100 bucks. Maybe a little more.
I got a 6 pack of Techron from Costco, and put one in about once a month, or once every other month. Whenever I remember.
Is this high-priced “fuel injection service” worth it? They claim it will really clean out the whole entire system, and may even make the Catalytic Converter run better (I keep having one of the O2 sensors go off on me… the one behind the CC. They claim that if I spend another $400 to have the O2 sensor replaced AND do this “fuel injection service,” it might help with the CC too).
So… basic question. Am I really gonna get $100 bucks worth out of doing this? Or would a bottle of Techron do just about the same thing for a LOT less money?
Oh yeah, also… they say the plugs are shot. Another $100+ bucks (and yeah, I know it sounds like they’re trying to “make a boat payment” on me, but… FWIW… I have put almost 40k miles on the car since I bought it…)
