Clean fuel injectors to help fix vehicle hesitation [SOLVED]

I have a 2012 4 cyl Chevy Equinox with 82,000 miles. Last week I noticed a slight hesitation when stepping on gas peddle from a standing start. Could my fuel injectors need a cleaning with Sea Foam?

Thanks for the question, Alex. Sea Foam works great for cleaning injectors, and it’s certainly worth a shot!

Here’s what I’d do:

Add a full can of Sea Foam High Mileage to a low tank of fuel (around 1/8 tank), and then drive the vehicle without adding more fuel (just don’t run out of gas).

After you’ve run the engine at least 20 minutes, add more fresh gasoline to the tank and operate as normal. That works very well to clean the entire fuel system.

If the hesitation was caused by dirty injectors, Sea Foam will help overcome it.

Hope that helps and keep us posted!
