I almost forgot! Get some Seafoam and run through it, providing you look up/ask someone how to properly do it. It will clean out all the extra oil gunk out of your motor. Don't know EXACTLY how it works but it cleans out your motor, and no you don't have to change your oil or somethin after doing it.

Yes you can. Just walk into any NAPA, Advance or AutoZone and ask for it. I know they've got those where you live.

Wait is it some kind of formula or like foam from the ocean waves? Thats what I thought at first. I mean someone said when debadging the car, use peanut butyter to get the glue lines off. So I wasnt quite sure as if he meant a formula or real seafoam.

Sea Foam
My mechanic said to try this
"STP Fuel Injector Cleaner with Feul Jet". Said its helped other customers before. He can easily change my injector, but he said to try to clean it out first.

I would stick with Lucas or Sea Foam. I run one can every 5k miles through everything I own. Luckily I buy it by the case. I've found from experience on customer cars that for a car that has had maintenance neglected the Sea Foam seems to make the most short term improvement but Lucas when used regularly keeps the system in better shape. That's based on non-scientific, long term experience. On the other hand, if you have a bad injector, no type of fuel treatment will help it. Replace it or at least perform a complete injection system cleaning. Then probably replace it.
