Transmission Fluid In Gas Tank Solves Fuel Injector Problems
Joe Price, Somerset, Ky.: "The fuel injector on our 1967 International Harvester 504 tractor constantly got dirty which caused it to fail numerous times. One time both ends of the injector blew off. About a year ago a mechanic told us we could solve the problem by putting transmission fluid in the gas tank, so we did and it solved the problem. Apparently the transmission fluid cuts right through the scum and cleans the injector out. We put the transmission fluid in at a ratio of about one quart per 15 gallons of fuel. We do this about twice a year. It's a cheap way to solve the problem."
