are less likely to malfunction and are easier to control. Do not use a damaged tool.
Tag damaged tools “Do not use” until repaired.
8.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and
any other condition that may affect this tool’s operation. If damaged, have
the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained
tools.
9.
Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your
model. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool may become hazardous

10. Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or
maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury.
11. When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the “Inspection, Maintenance, And Cleaning” section of this manual.
Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow maintenance instructions may create
a risk of injury.
12. Maintain labels and nameplates on the this tool. These carry important information. If unreadable or missing, contact Harbor Freight Tools for a replacement.
13. Do not operate the Fuel Injection Cleaner in a closed area or in a poorly ventilated area. When a vehicle’s engine is running, the engine produces carbon
monoxide, a colorless, odorless, toxic fume that, when inhaled, can cause
serious personal injury or death. Whenever possible, use a carbon monoxide
detector (not included) to detect excessive carbon monoxide fumes in the work
area and in the surrounding area.
14. Release fuel system pressure before servicing fuel system components.
15. Firmly tighten all connections before cleaning injectors. Fuel leakage can
cause a fire.
16. To avoid spilling fuel on the engine, wrap a shop towel around the pressure
tap fittings when connecting and disconnecting adapters. Pressurized fuel

can create a fire hazard. Dispose of the shop towel properly. Be aware that gasoline fumes remain within the tool after use, and can create an explosion hazard.
17. Make sure to keep dirt and debris out of the fuel system when cleaning.
18. Prior to servicing injectors, make sure to read and understand all instructions and safety precautions as outlined in the vehicle manufacturer’s service manual.
19. Replace the injector’s O-rings whenever injectors are removed. Never exceed
recommended pressures when cleaning fuel injectors.
20. Use the Fuel Injection Cleaner only on fuel injected gasoline engines.
21. Protect painted surfaces from fuel or cleaner fluid spills.
22. Keep tools, electrical cords, and hoses away from moving engine parts.
23. Wrap a shop towel around the fitting when removing the cleaner assembly
Hose. Residual line pressure may spray a small amount of cleaner fluid.
24. Observe normal precautions for working with flammable liquids. No smoking, open flames, electrical sparks, etc. Have a Class B fire extinguisher
available while working on fuel injection systems.
25. Power using compressed air only. Never use bottled gas as a power source.
26. Do not exceed 100 PSI operating pressure.
27. Do not apply pressure to the canister until ready to use.

Setup
For best service you should incorporate a regulator and inline filter on the compressor end of the hose, as shown in the diagram above. Hoses, couplers, regulators,
and filters are all available at Harbor Freight Tools.
1.
You will need to prepare a 1/4” air connector (not included) to connect to the Elbow
Fitting (8) on the tool. First, wrap the 1/4” air connector with pipe thread seal tape
before threading it into the Elbow Fitting. Connect the 3/8” ID Air Source Hose to a
quick connect coupler (not included), and then to the tool.
2.
Set the air pressure on the regulator near the compressor to 90 PSI. Do not exceed the maximum air pressure of 100 PSI.
3.
Check the air connection for leaks. Disconnect from the air source.
TO CLEAN THE FUEL INJECTORS
1.
Run the vehicle’s engine outside until it reaches normal operating temperature.
Then, shut off the engine.
2.
Disable the vehicle’s fuel pump.
Note: It is best to unplug the fuel pump at the fuel tank. On some vehicles, pulling the
fuel pump fuse also disables the ignition system or fuel injectors.
