    Swap in a new fuel filter and run a bottle of fuel injector cleaner. Should cost you $10. No need to hand the dealer $100 to do it.

    That has been done (done regularly) and will not work. I asked about off-the-engine fuel injector service, not on-the-engine injector cleaning. A new fuel filter and a bottle of fuel injector cleaner will not clear an injector filter basket that is clogged with rust particles from the inside of the fuel rail (due to water in the fuel), because no fuel or particles can get through it. I've already done a cleaning with the kit that screws into the fuel rail, and it couldn't clean the clogged injector, and in tank injector cleaners cannot come close to doing what a rail-connected cleaning kit will.

    So, I've already removed the injectors (hence the term "off-the-engine") and need them serviced. That's why I asked about such service.

    It's often costly but I've known people that have had it done, mainly to get the flow rates perfectly balanced on a complete set though as in some cases it's about the same cost to replace them or grab a bag full at a salvage yard and hope to find 8 good ones.

    It's probably cheaper to buy someone's low-mileage used ones then if that didn't fix your problem. I got a full set of '02 injectors with 16K miles on them for $50. Just make sure you get the same size as what came on yours. I think '99 and '00 had smaller 26lb injectors.

    Wow, nice deal on those used injectors. Where'd you find them?

    I found a place to do complete service on my injectors for $90.

    In the for sale forums on various boards. I thought there were a pair of injectors for $30 bucks in the for sale forums here....

    Edit - These are 98 injectors, but they're up for $30. You just have to keep an eye out.

    would it be enough to simply clean the injector or would a fuel line replacement be necessary as well?

    Contact these guys. You'll talk to Don or Tracy [both veterans]. My son works there & will probably do the work [he's got an automotive technology degree from Texas State Technical College, Waco, TX]. They use ultrasonic cleaners and flow comparator as part of the process. I've watched him work and there are good reasons to have this done, using the right equipment. Think about it, when you pour that little bottle of cleaner into your tank, where does the crap go that gets past the filter? INTO your injectors.

    Thanks for your info, but if you notice, the original post is almost 2 years old. I had my injectors reconditioned back in Jan. 2007 and they are still running great.
