Ok, what do we think about this? This was posted as a question on the rv.net forum:


"I recieved a notice from my Dealer that they now offer a Diesel Injection Service. They say this is a new thing. they do the following:
1. Perform a service that chemicaly removes accumulated deposits from the entire fuel system including lines, injector pump, and fuel injectors.
2. Deposits will also be removed from combustion chambers.

The cost for this is about $135.

I have not heard of this before so I wanted to post it and get a few remarks from others about it. Is it worth while? is the price decent? How often should it be done? thanks in advance for any feedback"


I think it's a stealer scam. Any thoughts?

My first reaction is scam also. I'm just running the standyne performance and hoping it takes care of any issues.


The biggest problem with diesel fuel systems seems to be injector lubrication and this 'service' will do nothing for that....


I dunno...

you'd be better off runnning a tank of biodiesel and changing the filter a little more frequently after

Actually an injector flush service is a good idea and that price ain't bad either. the whole point behind the injector flush is to clean out sediment from the injectors and prevent rusting internally, also the injector flow rate is improved. The 6.6 injector flush was recently approved by GM for these 3 reasons. BG and MOC make diesel injector flush kits now. and our dealership has validated the claims of improved injector flow rates after the flush............

A big welcome to GM world class; thanks for the info. I am going to wait to transfer any info to the rv site until a few more chime in here as right now we have a "good idea" and a "leery". But this is why we have the pros here answering questions for us.

I think if you run Stanadyne every tank you take care of build up before it starts, plus the lube. Its the way I'm going anyhow.
