Injector Cleaning by fuel additives?

They tend to leak externally - that is fuel goes from inside the injector to the outside.  System pressure bleeds down and hard starting ensues.

If you don't know the history of your injectors, it is best to just replace them.  Although it is not an extremely difficult job, it is better to just install new ones and be done with it, than trying to check for bad pattern and leak - IMO..YMMV - but I have spent too much time in the past t-shooting for/because of bad injectors when I should have just replaced them at the outset.


I've had numerous suggestions from list members that my 
long-crank, hot start problem could be due to leaky injectors. Has anyone 
found a fuel additive that corrects injecor leaks due to sludge-etc
