yeah unfortunatly I can't take another other option is for me to drive my 99 Jeep wrangler....a FE Killer!!! we like our 4x4s out here...haha....and yes matt, I'm a banjo picker so look out.....I posted this site ( on my favorite web place the so maybe we'll see some pickers tryin to save some money...everyone was going crazy over gas prices so I decided to give them this site and let them try and save some money....but oh well.....I'd assume that putting in acetone would ATLEAST clean out the injectors and some other stuff eh?

It would clean them out, indeed. But it's "vaporization" effects are based on dubious science, I think.

You can always try the Acetone. Their doesn't seem to be any significant downsides, at least when it's used in the ratio's suggested. It didn't do anything I could identify, so I stopped, but it seems to help in some vehicles, so try it.

Do the grill block, increase the tire pressures and slow down, is probably about as good as your going to get, with that vehicle.

if you have time run some seafoam thru the engine. made a diferance on how mine ran (never been past the valve cover gasket in 136,000 miles so it prolly cleaned a buttload of stuff)

best way is to start the car, dump about 1/2 the bottle into the engine thru the brake booster vacum line(dont worry the revs will go up but not too high) and slowly dump it in but not too fast otherwise it will stall. once its all in immediately turn off the engine and wait 5 minutes. reconnect the line and start her up. it will smoke ALOT but dont worry it will go away. i went on a "spirited drive" down the highway (acceleratign as fast as it possibly could go) to break up and burn off any built up stuff. smoke went away after a few minutes. made a difference on how smooth the engine ran.
