5.4L Injector Flush

Went to the dealer to make an appointmrnt for an oil change and fuel filter change and they suggested an injector flush in fact I think they called it an emissions flush in which a buch of chemicals are pumped through the injectors to clean them. It is going to cost me $159.99 for the flush is it worth getting.?

Can't you do the same thing with a bottle of injector cleaner from Crappy Tire? Hell of a lot cheaper.

I wonder if they reverse flush them...push the crap out the way it got in. No use trying to force it thru that tiny orfice at the end.

are you having drivability concerns?injector flushing is not a recommended service on these newer injectors(they have a coating that can be damaged)

If your talking about an "E-vac" it can be worth the money depending on your mileage and whether or not your experiencing either low power, lower fuel mileage, or a questionable e-test fail or near fail.

It flushes more than just the injectors if its the one I'm talking about.

I've had it done as a last resort to squeak by for a conditional pass with emissions testing before on an chevy.
