3M FUEL SYSTEM TUNE UP KIT
The 3M Fuel System Tune-up Kit is a economical solution for achieving professional mechanic grade fuel efficiency and performance out of fuel systems. Made up of three quality 3M automotive products — 3M Intake System Cleaner, 3M Throttle Plate and Carb Cleaner and 3M Complete Fuel System Cleaner — together they work to take away carbon, varnishes at soot from all areas of your fuel system. This easy to use tuning system is useable by virtually any would-be mechanic.
INCREASE FUEL ECONOMY, POWER AND ACCELERATION
Because no engine is 100% efficient, carbon, resins, and varnishes eventually build up in critical engine components, causing a reduction in fuel economy, power and acceleration. Until now car owners needed to pay for a professional fuel system service to remedy this, which may also be very costly. But now 3M has provided do-it-yourself consumers with a great new way to get maximum performance from their vehicles from the convenience of their own home garage, for less than ½ the price of what they would pay for a similar results at a service center. The 3M Fuel System Tune-up Kit combines the strengths of three quality 3M automotive maintenance products into a single fuel system tune-up program that when performed yearly, or each and every 10,000 miles, will fortify vehicle performance and gas mileage. These three products are: 3M Intake System Cleaner, 3M Throttle Plate and Carb Cleaner and 3M Complete Fuel System Cleaner. The steps involved in this process are easy to perform and can feasibly be done by a single person, but are more easily achieved with the help of an assistant at the back of the wheel at certain stages.
EASY-TO-USE SOLUTION: 3 SIMPLE STEPS
Step 1 – 3M Intake System Cleaner: Follow the fresh intake hose to the out of doors of your engine’s throttle body. Remove the hose boot clamp where it enters the throttle body with a screw driver to access the throttle plate. Insert the 3M Intake System Cleaner’s attached hose past the throttle plate and slip the intake hose boot back on. With the assistance of an assistant, start the car engine whilst the work area is monitored. When the engine idle reaches 500-1,000 RPM, hold steady at this rate and spray the product’s contents into the running engine. This process cleans intake manifolds, valves and combustion chambers. Use all the can, which may take several minutes. Turn off the engine and remove the product hose. Step 2 – 3M Throttle Plate and Carb Cleaner: Again, with the assistance of an assistant, place the vehicle ignition in the “Run” position, but with the engine NOT started, and depress the accelerator to expose both sides of the throttle plate. Spray both sides of the plate, in addition to the throttle body with 3M Throttle Plate and Carb Cleaner. Wipe over the top cleaner away and/or let wet areas dry for a couple of minutes with the throttle plate open before you replace the fresh air hose boot, tighten it up. This process cleans your engine’s throttle plate and lubricates key pivot areas. Step 3 – 3M Complete Fuel System Cleaner: This last step continues the remedy of all critical fuel system components. Add 3M Complete Fuel System Cleaner to a full tank, at a really helpful delusion ratio of one ounce of additive to every gallon of fuel. Start the engine, allowing it to idle for a couple of minutes before driving it for 10-15 minutes. 3M Complete Fuel System Cleaner cleans injectors, intake valves and an combustion chambers whilst your engine consumes this tank of gas.
PREPARING THE VEHICLE
Inspect the vehicle for illuminated warning lights on the dash and correct any preexisting conditions that are causing illuminated warning lights. If serious emissions and driveability problems (Gross polluter, check engine light, Service EngineSoon, hard miss-fires, overheating catalytic converter, unexpected stalling, and so forth. ..) must be properly and completely diagnosed to resolve whether the usage of a 3M cleaner is needed to help get to the bottom of or correct the problem. Do not expect these 3M products to cure an unknown emissions,driveability, or loss of fuel economy problem Inspect the engines oil level (top off as needed prior to the usage of these products), inspect the engines cooling system for leaks, coolant level, and proper cooling system operation (topoff or repair as needed prior to the usage of these products), inspect the vehicle’s entire exhaust system for leaks, deterioration or damage to make sure that adequate exhaust ventilation may also be maintained during the application of the cleaner (DO NOT use these products if adequate exhaust ventilation cannot be assured or serious personal injury or death can occur – such as Carbon Monoxide Poisoning). NOTE: If an oil change is going to be done or if spark plugs or oxygen sensors are going to get replaced, it’s really helpful that these be replaced AFTER the usage of the 3M Fuel System Tune-Up Kit.
