Hi, I have a 92 ford explorer xlt with approx. 170,000 miles on it. I recently had a service shop diagnose the reason it was running sluggish( I could press the gas pedal to the floor and it wouldn't pick up speed). I was told the #2 and #5 fuel injectors needed to be replaced and they couldn't be cleaned because they are self-cleaning injectors. I do have some knowledge of auto repair(earned diploma for main. Tech) so this sounded fishy to me. So, is it possible to have the injectors cleaned or flushed or do they absolutely have to be replaced? Also, what would be the best way of going about the job myself? Thanks.
