my 2005 Chrysler PT cruiser is running fine, but the mechanic says I need to do a fuel injection service to keep it running fine. Sounds like bunk to me. Suggestions?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jenny Trostel, Partner at Anderson of Hunt Valley Sounds like bunk to me too. Your car is very new and should not be having fuel injection problems. I would take it to an ASE certified technician in your area to have it looked at. You can find a certified tech by going here: http://www.ase.com/bluesealsearch/locator.php

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines I would say that it's probably not necessary if you're not having a driving problem. It's basically a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. If you put the right type of fuel in your vehicle and don't have problems like poor acceleration or bad gas mileage, I would say that your fuel system is okay. Make sure to check your owners manual so that you're not voiding your warranty by not doing the service, then I would say it's not necessary.
