How to perform a three step fuel service + how to make a tool

Featured
the three step is a common service procedure performed at almost every shop out there, however it is not cheap. a quick call around were i live netted prices between 120-175. it isn't a hard process but it is a time consuming one. for less than $30 I performed something i believe to be almost the same thing.


this is my first instructable, please leave feedback and let me know how i could make it better!

also  the standard disclaimer applies, fuel is flammable, an irritant, and so is the cleaner you choose (or at least I hope so)
and air pressure can be dangerous if misused,

"make and use a homemade fuel injector cleaner for you car or truck"

Nice job, but I think your title is off. I've used an injector cleaner before, but I had access to shop air and a parts box for the proper banjo fittings.

If I did it again with home-brew cleaner, though, I'd probably try to remove my catalytic converter. All that unburned fuel-smoke can't be good for it.
