Fuel injection services can do amazing things. They can improve fuel efficiency, increase horse power, and repair some performance concerns. I have even seen fuel injection services quiet horrendous carbon knocks--a knocking noise from the engine due to excessive carbon build-up coming in contact with internal engine components. Whether or not fuel injector cleaning auto maintenance will do all the above every time is another story. The most important factor is the vehicle's condition. If a vehicle has been poorly maintained, run on cheap gas, and abused, a fuel injection service may do miracles. If the vehicle has been maintained according to manufacturer guidelines, an injection service is likely not needed.
How often should it be done? It depends on the product used, but generally between 15,000 to 30,000-miles is the average if your car is idling poorly or was hesitating while accelerating you may need this service.

Oxygen Sensors measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gases and send a signal to the Engine Control Unit (ECU). The ECU monitors the signal and accordingly adjusts the amount of fuel entering the engine, keeping the air-fuel ratio closer to stoichiometric ratio. Thus, an Oxygen Sensor optimizes the performance and fuel efficiency and minimizes emissions.
