Do fuel system cleaners actually work? Testing Gumout "All-in-One"
This is the first test in a series of fuel cleaner test I will be performing to see how fuel cleaners work and if they actually work. In this video I tested Gumout "All in one" fuel system cleaner. I use a mini borescope camera to look into the engine and see how dirty the engine is before the fuel treatment and then after the fuel treatment. I followed the instructions on the container and Gumout fuel cleaner did a great job cleaning the shiny, sludge buildup, but did not work as well as I would have thought on the clumps of hard carbon buildup. It did not clean the cylinders as much as I thought it would since they do say one bottle will clean the engine. Here is the fuel cleaner I used: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004AYTRU6/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789& creative=390957&creativeASIN=B004AYTRU6&linkCode=as2&tag=chri0e2-20&linkId= RR7WMPOEKFYJEVRA Here is the borescope camera I used: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JERRES6/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789& creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00JERRES6&linkCode=as2&tag=chri0e2-20&linkId= PWJIOJANWO4OKX7I Here is the follow up video after using the second bottle of Gumout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJSIHGDwMtU Here is the Seafoam Test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdT4DPFXIkM Here is the Techron Test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8i9qftqKNY Lucas Deep Clean Test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLhXqgEEYyI **If the video was helpful, please give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing.** Follow me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/chrisfix8 Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChrisFixed Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=paintballoo7 YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/PaintballOO7 **New How To videos every Thursday and most Mondays!** Disclaimer: Due to factors beyond the control of ChrisFix, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.

How To Check Fuel Pressure -EricTheCarGuy
Here's another one from the 'basics' series. Many times when confronted with a no start or performance problem you need to check fuel pressure. This is a helpful guide on how to go about that process. Many times a fuel pressure gauge can be rented from your local auto parts store or tool rental outlet. If you went to purchase a gauge they vary in price greatly. The biggest concern is the adapters used to tie into the different fuel systems you'll encounter. Outside of that the simple tests shown in this video can help walk you through how to check and interpret fuel pressure readings. Camera: Brian Kast Tools.

Clean Fuel Injectors Means Better Gas Mileage!
Have you ever wondered how a fuel injector worked? David Rogers shows how clean fuel injectors can lead to a more efficient burn, meaning better gas mileage and lower emissions! (He also lights some stuff on fire) The secret to a clean fuel line is MotorVac, a system that cleans your entire system, from injectors to the catalytic converter.

How to Properly Perform a Fuel System Cleaning
What I am showing you is the proper way to clean the fuel system of your vehicle. The vehicle in this video is a 1998 Saturn SL2 with a 1.9L DOHC engine. It has over 177K miles and is the second time a fuel system cleaning will have been performed. The last time, I had it done professionally at a local service center. After 20,000 miles, thought I would figure out how to do it myself and cheaper. Items you will need are: - Seafoam Motor Treatment (or equivalent product) - Pliers - Screwdrivers - Funnel - Self built intake cleaning hose Components of fuel system cleaning hose: - 4ft of 3/8"ID Vinyl Tubing - 1ft of 1/4"OD Polyethylene Tubing - 1/2" hose mender - 3/8" x 1/4" barb connector - 1/4"x1/8" connector - 1/4" x 1/8" needle valve All these items you should be able to find at the local hardware or plumbing shop. This is just a prototype I have created and will be refining the design as I go along. Take the needle valve and attach the 1/4" tubing to one end and the 3/8" tubing to the other. Use the 1/2" hose mender at the end of the 3/8" tubing (You will have to force it on because mender is a lot bigger than the inside diameter of the tubing) as the attachment point of the vacuum line. I will be using Seafoam Motor Treatment for this video. There are other similar products out there, but this is the one I have chosen. You will also need a throttle body cleaner as well. Both of these can be found at your local auto parts store. 1. take the Seafoam cleaner and separate it into 3 equal parts, or since it is a 16 oz bottle of this particular cleaner, I chose to separate it this way: 1. 5oz. for the fuel 2. 5oz. for the oil 3. 6oz. for the intake cleaning. 2. Disconnect vacuum hose from the brake Booster. This is the big round drum looking thing on the driver side at the rear of the engine compartment. 3. Take the intake cleaner hose you have just put together and attach the 1/2" hose mender to the vacuum line. 4. Take 5oz. and add to the fuel tank. Use a funnel to help keep the cleaner off vehicle paint. 5. Remove oil cap and pour the other 5oz. in with the oil. a. This will clean the lower end of the engine. 6. Take the bottle with the remaining cleaner fluid and poke a hole in the top so that the hose 1/4" hose can fit through. 7. Somehow have it so it is hanging above the engine and that the 3/8" tubing connected to the vacuum line is straight. 8. Make sure the needle valve is closed all the way and start the vehicle. 9. While running, slowly open the valve and allow a steady stream of cleaner to enter the engine. Don't open the valve too quickly or you will let too much cleaner in and may stall the engine. 10. Once the can is drained, turn off vehicle and let it sit for between 5-15 minutes. a. This will "Hot-soak" the engine and break up the carbon and tarnish build up. 11. Reattach the vacuum line to the brake Booster. Very important or your engine will run at higher RPM's and you may not have brakes. 12. During the wait, you can clean the throttle body by removing the intake hose from your air filter exposing the butterfly valve. Open this valve and spray in the cleaner. Make sure all surfaces are covered and let this cleaner sit and break up the build up on and behind the butterfly valve. a. DO NOT perform this step if you have a Mass airflow sensor. These are very delicate sensors and expensive to replace. Do not messed with them. b. If you want to be more thorough, take a cloth or some type of swab and manually clean off the build up that way it does not get sucked into the engine. 13. Reattach the intake hose 14. After the wait, start the engine and rev the engine to between 2000-3000 RPM to blow the buildup and cleaner out through the Exhaust. The engine is going to start rough so make sure you are ready to step on the gas to keep it running. 15. When you see that the smoke is becoming lighter, drive it for about 20 minutes to finish the process of cleaning. 16. You may see a check engine light come on, this is normal. Have someone scan it to be sure and then erase the codes. It will most likely show cylinder misfire and O2 sensor malfunction codes. If it is something else then investigate further. You have completed a complete fuel system cleaning. It is recommended on the bottle that you perform this every 2000-5000 miles. I would recommend every other oil change, or for those that drive a lot, at least twice a year. This helps maintain horsepower, and fuel efficiency. If you have not done this procedure before, it is probably a very good idea to have this done, either professionally or by yourself. Disclaimer: I am not a certified mechanic. These videos are created for informational purposes only. If you choose to attempt the procedure shown today, you do so at your own risk.





Fuel Additives & Injector Cleaner - Explained
What are fuel additives? Fuel additives can clean fuel injectors, intake valves, pistons, and cylinder heads. What are the active ingredients, and how do they work? This video explores Gumout Multi-System Tune-Up, with the active ingredient polyether amine, which is used to remove combustion chamber deposits, including carbon.

Camry Idle Air Control Valve Cleaning
This is my Father's 1999 Toyota Camry with the 3.0 liter V6 (1MZ-FE) engine. About every three years, the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve always gets clogged up causing the car to keep stalling when cold started unless the accelerator was depressed while the engine warms up. It's expensive to replace (someone quoted my dad $300) but I read that a shot of carburetor cleaner down the hole usually takes care of the problem.
