mad EF XR6 being a pig at startup

G'day guys.
I have 95 ef XR6 that is being a real dog to start, I think I already know the answer to the problem, but wanted to get a second third and fourth opinion.
I have done the oil, the filters, the plugs the leads.
now when I say its hard to start, it requires to be cranked over significantly, stopped and then on the second or even third attempt it will fire. its got 225000 km on it, as far as I'm aware its never been apart, when it is running its great doesn't miss a beat except sometimes on inital take off it lags and then goes.

now this is what leads me to think the injectors are gummed up.
firstly does anyone have a ball park figure for getting the falcon injectors cleaned, secondly, are they difficult to remove?
and can I do the majority of it myself?
thanks
Dave

Re: EF XR6 being a pig at startup

My EF XR6 is doing a similar thing, except it fires first time but struggles (leaky inject maybe). Also misses slightly from idle through to 2,000rpm. I'm pretty sure its the injectors aswell (blocked). Been running all types of fuel (even tried REG Unleaded the other week) to try and clean it to no success.

I've been told $500 for replacement is not uncommon, but I couldn't trust the source.

I'd also be interested as to what $'s a clean (more replacement in my case) would be.

Ta
Case.

Re: EF XR6 being a pig at startup

I think I have found shall we say a short term fix..
a bottle of injector cleaner and a tank of optimax, fired 1st go and has gotten a bit sweeter to run
