I am going to do a diagnostic test on my kia sephia because the cel is on
and it is running rough. If it shows I need the fuel injectors cleaned
(seems to be a common problem) is there any chance fuel injector cleaner
will solve the problem? Or will I need to fork out the $ to have them
cleaned? Also, to do the test do I just plug the tester into the
diagnostic port while the car is running?
1. Why are you spamming the same basic question
(http://www.car-forums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=17994) over two different
threads? This does nothing to motivate people to help you and usually
confuses the matter.
2. There is not now, nor has there ever been a DTC that tells you to clean your injectors.
3. If you don't know how the proper procedure to "plug in the tester", then you sure as hell don't know how to use it, so you won't have any idea what the datastream is telling you anyway. Additionally, according to your other thread you don't even know where the DLC is located.
4. Like it or don't (and I'm sure you won't and will respond with some indignant reply), from everything I've read in your two posts, the smartest and most economical thing for you to do is to have a competent technician diagnose, isolate and repair your car.
Probably because I told them it was actually a more appropriate question for Repairs/Maintenence section.
One of the few things you've ever gotten right when giving advice.
Blah blah blah.
That right there is the most lucid post you've ever made. Good job.
I found the port to plug it into. It took someone 5 seconds to explain the
procedure for plugging it in and getting the code. Found out 1 cylinder
was not firing. Changed the plugs, and it runs great now. I hope posting
things like that makes you feel better about yourself.
Thanks for all the help everyone.
