If you can't find a CC that will do it, I'd look arouind, as I've seen it fro as low as 60 bucks, 140 seems way steep to me...

I paid around $100 or $120 Canadian. Definitely look around for better pricing.

I did a little more searching and it turns out Jiffy Lube has a service too. They all call it something different.
I'm debating whether to drive the 10 min. to Jiffy Lube or wait til the weather changes and make the hour or so trip to Trexlertown.
I've never had a prob. at Jiffy but I keep hearing horror stories. I'll have to sleep on this one.

I can however vouch for RedeX products. They make fuel additives suited to most engine configurations (Diesel, Carb, Injection..) and don't cost $140!
I have witness Redex cure low speed roughness/hestitation in my own car, and two newer VW's. Problems that STP products couldn't help.
If you can get a bottle of this stuff, I would strongly recommend trying it before shelling out the dough for a Motorvac.

The Motor Vac subject came up again this weekend on their show. They said they have a Motor Vac machine in their shop and claimed that it works fantastic on applications that warrant it.
As mechanics themselves, they're sensitive to other, unscrupulous mechanics selling unneccesary proceedures to unwitting customers. That might have been their beef in the previous example.
