Hello, thank you for using Just answer. I think we can figure this out between the two of us. I just need to know how detailed you want me to be and if there is a check engine light on, I will need to know the codes associated with that check engine light. Most auto parts stores can pull these codes for free. What was the name of the cleaner you used to spray into the intake? Please let me know and thanks
