Cleaning fuel injectors

I have one of these fuel injector cleanng kits that i use to use on my ford car. On it i pulled the fuel pump fuse and plugged the hose for the fuel pressure regulator with a golf tee and started the engine and it actually ran off a can of pressurized fuel injector cleanng solution.

Does the Hemi have a hose going to the fuel pressure regulator ?

There is a disconnect on a 3rd gen ram at the fuel rail. But I would say that item is a waste of time and money. If you are getting codes? Switch the injectors around and nail down which one is acting up and replace it. my 2 cents.....

Yes don't bother cleaning injectors unless you know how to take them apart and sonic tank clean them. Replace them or send them to injector clinic and have properly cleaned out.

A ultrasonic jewellery bowl works very well and is cheap to buy.

I would spend my money and time elsewhere if there are no current issues.
