$160 induction cleaning?!

$50 for a fuel filter?! Ford must be crazy! ;-)

That's what they recommended today since I'm over 15K.

Is there anything that Ford service would do that a joint like Jiffy Lube
wouldn't when having your fuel system cleaned?

Where would you all recommend that I take it to have this seemingly simple
service done?

Next question, all they are going to do is jack the induction cleaning kit
into my intake, and then hose down my throttle plate right?

Maybe I should just do it myself.

Hrm..

The crazy ones are those willing to pay it.

If it's so simple then why not do it yourself?

No, they usually run a can a injector cleaner in the tank, then hook into
the vacuum system and run a cleaner into the intake which is sucked in by
vacuum. It looks like this...

This cleans the throttle body, throttle plate, valves, combustion chamber,
intake runners, the upper ring-belt area of all the piston chambers,
basically the whole top end of your system. I'd run a can of BG Fuel
Injection System Cleaner then run BG44K.

BG recently ran a '93 Mazda MX-6 to 310,000 miles with virtually zero wear
on the internals (ALL the internals) due to using their products. Here's the
report...

BG recommends the Throttle and upper intake be cleaned every 30-45k not
15k. Wait and do it at 30-45 and just wipe off your throttle plate for
now. The throttle is coated so make to wipe it not soak it with the
cleaner. If you do the service now it will not hurt but you wouldn't
"feel" the difference. Don't pay more than $139 to have it done right
with the fogger not the suck through can. There are two different BG
services.
