Fuel system clean up?
Topic: Fuel system clean up?
January 26, 2020 / By Josette Question:
Hey Guys, I just went to Experttire to change my oil, I have Lexus 92, es300, so what they recommended me is to clean my Fuel system with EK 10T ever-wear 3 step Fuel System Cleaner, the cost is 39.99+labor 50$. What is that? I mean why so expensive, isn't something I can do by myself? So I went online to find that product, but I did not, does somebody knows why they do not sell this staff online or do they sell it to customers like me at all? But what I found is Zmax - 35$ on www.partsamerica.com So can somebody tell me what the difference between EK10 which I can not purchase and Zmax which I can purchase?

Funny. You don't need it. You can do it by yourself.
Chevron fuel system cleaner, goes for about 11 dollars
and check out
SeaFoam Motor treatment.
All that will cost you less than 30 dollars. And its real simple to do.
Don't be ripped off.
If you want more information (if you live in the states) Go to your local autozone and ask about those products, they will tell you everything you need to know.

I have the intake cleaner system at my shop and i also have the fuel injector cleaning system at my shop. The intake cleaner works by removing a vacuum line and running the engine until the solvent has all been used up, the injector cleaner works by running a solvent through the fuel rail using the shop air, im not sure what kind of ghetto system the other guy was using that used aerosol to force the fluid, every shop i know uses the shop air from our compressors. the oil system cleaner is just a "motor flush" where you put a bottle of cleaner in the engine and let it idle for 5 minutes then drain the oil. I offer all these services at my shop but i don't push them. I have seen the fuel injector cleaner fix sticky injectors but as a regular maintenance i never recommend these services. I don't do them on my own vehicles either. If you regularly change oil and do your normal maintenance then you shouldn't need these. I do however put a bottle of Sea foam in my gas tank at every oil change. always have and ive never had an injector problem in any of my vehicles. Don't waste your money on these "up sales" just get the oil change.
I do not know what the heck ek 10t is or who sells it; but Z max is a racing product that helps your engine block last longer because of high speed driving. If you changed the oil why did you end up trying to clean your fuel system. What you need to do is go to your local auto parts store and look for fuel injector cleaner. STP and other brands are available. Good luck.

the guy who reccomends the treatment gets a bonus for every customer that has it done. He would reccomend a new muffler if there were anything in it for him.
you can put in a bottle of STP gas Treatment in your tank once a week and that will clean and keep the injectors clean.Plus take any water out of the tank

don't don't don't put stuff in your car because someone recommends it. The first guy cited chevron. I thinks it chevron-Techron and you can buy it at wallmart. Best stuff going.

Actually Robb, time is the only thing that will get the THC out of your system. If you are a sporadic smoker, and have not smoked it frequently, there is a good chance you will pass and here is why.
Marijuana has a half-life in your system. How long it takes to leave your system depends on how much you smoke. But the time maxes out at around 45 days. One smoking session for someone with a clean system takes about 3-4 days to be clean. Smoke 2 days later and then have to wait about a week, and so on. The time it will take roughly doubles every time you smoke until it maxes at about 45 days to be clean. So if you are maxed out and you wait about 2 weeks and then smoke again, you're basically back to 45 days.
Marijuana can be detected in urine for nearly a week after smoking. Blood tests can be more accurate, and it might take a month to be totally clear. Hair tests show every drug ever taken when that hair was growing - this is why you see so many drug addicts with shaved heads or buzz cuts, by the way. Also by the way: taking laxatives and drinking wacky chemicals won't "cheat" a drug test. It will just make you go to the bathroom! These drug tests are designed by experts who anticipate what the drug user might do.
Be very careful of "remedies" for getting around drug tests. They flat out do not work and could do damage to your body.
