Pour in a can of "SeaFoam" in the fuel, the injectors are most likely varnished up.

Do i need to have a full tank of gas and just dump it in the tank . ill try this tomorrow.

And i put a bottle of fuel injecter cleaner in it allready does that do the same thing?

It should have 20 gallons but I have used it in 5 gallons for a really bad varnish problems. On the cleaner you already have, did you put in a good quality one? If it is then it should do the same but might take longer.

So i used B 12 chemtool and it has not helped yet

So the idels ok and the cruse light is off thin cruse light comes on and the idels wrong again and the relays and fuel pump starts clicking on and off

Better start checking for wiring damage and corrosion in connectors.

Thank you for your help I'm going to start following wiers
