Fuel Systmen Cleaning on Toyota Highlander

Asked by Jul 29, 2012 at 02:50 PM about the 2006 Toyota Highlander Base V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Took my 2006 Highlander in for rountine 6 mo. maintenance.  No performance issues.  They recommended a fuel system cleaning, because they said I last had it done 1 year ago.  I didn't know any better a year ago, but since then, I have heard that is a scam if not having problems.  I declined to do it again, to the tune of $169.00, but they are still advising I do so.  Is this really necessary?

It's not a scam, but it isn't necessary either. Todays fuels have cleaners added to them. You can run a bottle ot techtron fuel system cleaner every once in a while if it will make you feel better. Maybe you want to frequent another mechanic or dealer if they are pushing services you don't need to make a buck. Just my 2 cents.
