Just got the Injectors Cleaned

I just got my injectors cleaned on my EB wagon because of uneven idle, fluctuating speed and high fuel usage.

The car flys now and highway driving is so much easier because before it was difficult to keep a steady speed, now it just cruises nicely.
More POWER too. :s5

I also had the power steering pump switch replaced because it wasn't working and the engine wasn't picking up more revs when I turned the wheel.

But I'm very impressed with the difference cleaning the injectors made.

Sam

Re: Just got the Injectors Cleaned

Regarding the power steering pump switch

My EB2 shudders say for example when you reverse, put it in drive with the wheel full lock and then move forward slowly. Would a new switch fix this?. Just guessing b/c you mention the engine should increase RPM in this situation.

Possibly, I got code 52 returned on fault codes and that is for faulty power steering switch.
Maybe do a Self diagnostic test or get a mechanic to do one and see what they find?

My car actually used to stall when it was under power like going up a hill slowly or pulling something and you were using the power steering and the air con.
