SOURCE: how can I clean 90 dodge dakota injectors and find

If injectors check out electrically but are dirty, sometimes depending how fouled they are adding a few ounces of acetone (3oz per 10 gal gas) will help clean them up. However, if you have a poor spray pattern from wear, replacement is necessary. I have seen some really nice "home made" injector testers but haven't really seen anything you can buy to do that job. Since they can't be "repaired" generally it's just better to change them if you don't believe they are working properly. (generally after testing all related components and having those check out as good)

Make sure your engine isnt locked up first. If not then replace the starter. Put a test light on the stater wire which is the smallest wire connecting to the starter, get someone to turn the key over while probing the wire if the test light lights up then you have a bad starter.
