On older autos, you can use water in a spray bottle or anything that will SLOWLY inject the water into the intake. IT will boil the water and "steam" clean the combustion chamber.
When the auto is up to normal temperature, bring the rpms up around 2000 and slowly inject the water.
Warning: Do not get water on the mass air sensor, and if you are not confident in your abilities, it is best to not try. You can cause more harm, than good. There are how-to videos on youtube.

Avoid “miracle” fuel additives and gadgets. The Federal Trade Commission has studied dozens of these products and concluded that none of them work. Some may cause engine damage or contribute to decreased fuel efficiency.
