Re: fuel injection cleaning of swift vdi

If your engine is slugging or knocking in lower RPM or pulling capacity has dropped, you may need to clean the fuel injector.
Since you have driven nearly 65K, it may warrant that for safer side.

The symptoms you mentioned may be due to other reason also. right?

There will be fuel injector for both petrol and diesel engine.
If your fuel injector nozzle is filled with dirt, then your combustion chamber may not get enough fuel required for power resulting some sluggish performance.
I think more appropriate word will be engine smoothness will be gone.
Yes, those mentioned symptoms could happen due to some other reason like bad fuel pump,adulterate fuel , damaged spark plug(petrol engine) etc etc. I don't really know many reason for knocking.

Cleaning can be done by chemical liquid or by mechanic. Take your call on that.

Have you checked the air filter and fuel filter?

Have you emptied the fuel sedimenter?

Bosch is more expensive because they clean the injectors physically and they flow test it as well.Please ask them about what all is included in the injector cleaning.

As for DIY, you can empty the sedimenter and clean the air filter yourself.Check your owners manual for instructions.

hi friends
I have changed the air filter as well as fuel filter. what is. fuel sedimenter in swift? please reply.
Water and dirt are heavier than fuel, so they are trapped, away from the funnel edge. They fall under gravity, and settle at the base of the sedimenter.

A cup like part. [roll]

I am experiencing Jerks/Shudder with acceleration especially with Light Throttle Openings. Same while stepping off the throttle too. This isn't felt when the throttle pedal is floored. Moreover, Idle is surging too.

Something with Dirty Fuel Injectors? Or need to check other points like Throttle Position Sensor / Dirty Throttle Body / Dirty Air Filter / Dirty Fuel Filter / MAF? What to check or something else?

Note - 50K Service due in a week or two.

What I would suggest is trying using System D or Abro Fuel injector cleaner for the next two to three consequetive tank fulls and see if it helps. I regularly use System G in my petrol car and System D in my Diesel car to keep the fuel injectors clean.

Do you feel something wrong with the engine how it perform? Maybe you dont need any and the mechanic only want to charge you for cleaning them?

Have you try a bottle of Fuel Injection Cleaners? The ones that you poor in your gas tank and mix with the gasoline. Try that first.

Hope to hear from you how everything goes.
