You really need to have them removed and ultrasonically cleaned.

Before you go the ultrasonic, go to a Toyota Factory service centre and pick up a bottle of Toyota injector cleaner. It is only available from Toyota as far as I know, it is in a no frills bottle with a simple label and the instructions. It totally fixed my previous EB Fairmont up. The EB was totally blocked up and had really bad accelleration, the Toyota gear fixed it up. Give it a shot, if it still doesn't work then go the ultrasonic clean. it is about $20 a bottle. All the other product around $10 a bottle that claim to clean injectors I have found to be next to useless.

Go The Roaring Fords !!

A word of advice.... on the advice from ford about inj cleaners "Yeah mate any brand will do" I went to BP & bought a cheap nasty brand .... It was that shitty it actually ate the nozzle tip out of the injector.... A costly exercise...

Of all the retail brands, I have found that Wynns Spitfire is the best.
Just the same I will try the Toyota stuff next time based on the above recommendations
