Thinking of running some Liqui Moloy diesel purge thru my volvo tamd61a this spring. Anyone use it or have thoughts. Not really experiencing problems just a little low rpm surging.

Scallywag,

Your Volvo and any other diesel needs clean water free fuel to burn.
Nothing else is required.

I suppose it would not hurt the motor to use this stuff but IMHO it's a waste of $dough$.

fwiw, Bill D

I've heard good things about that product if used straight the way they suggest. But I agree, not a substitute for pulling, cleaning, and setting the injectors if they have over 1500 hrs on them.

Thanks for the replys. I pulled the injectors myself probably less than 1000hrs. ago and had them rebuilt (cleaned and pop-off presures set).
I have also replaced the fuel tanks and Racor 900 since then. The thing is that with noncomercial use the injectors were done approx. 8 years ago.
I drive an old mercedes 240d with 300,000 miles on it and use this product
every couple of years. It has a 67hp 4cyl.natural diesel. I was just curious if any of you guys were using injector cleaning products as part of routine
maintanance.
