    Awesome Product from a Great Company

    (verified owner)

    I love the TSE. It has made my transmission shift easier and run cooler. Have my truck tuned, so the shifting was a little more aggressive than stock, but this stuff even made it smooth out. It cleans and lubricates the valve bodies and make a transmission, operate more efficiently. Try it! You will be a believer. Have use Hot Shot’s Secret since I purchased this truck, and all of their products do what they say and a very high quality. Even called and spoke to them about product usage, and they were extremely helpful and knew what they were talking about. Again, great products, great people, and as always…GREAT RESULTS!!

It has 145000 miles 45000 of those are driven by me. I’m not having any noticeable issues but I figured it’s time. Capacity is 17 quarts. Should I just put 16 quarts of ATF and a full quart of TSE?

      Russell, I’d definitely recommend trying the TSE in your Focus, TSE is 100% compatible with your car. Your slippage issue across multiple gears could definitely be a stiction/lubrication related issue. TSE is a great place to start when tracking down transmission issues because we offer a money back guarantee. We have a technical team that can help you get to the bottom of your issue and offer recommendations. As for the dosage, I’d check your owners manual for the correct capacity; you’ll use about 1.6oz of TSE per quart of ATF. Keep us in the loop if you give it a shot!

      It will not help the focus ,that is a manual transmission that shifts by itself ,it actually has two clutches like a conventional manual transmission and it is the clutch that is shuddering and ford will replace that clutch for free as long as you are under 100,000 miles I know because I’m a ford technician

      Thanks for weighing in Sherman! We’ve seen multiple cases of TSE helping with Focus transmissions; and with a 100% money back guarantee on our products we’ll refund the cost of the product even if the problem lies in a separate system or part.

      The Powershift transmission utilizes dry clutches and electric motor/solenoid actuation; while they were a step in the right direction, the transmission still has a few kinks to work out. We’ve had coworkers with affected Focuses and when taken to Ford they would update the transmission software or replace the clutch. We’ve also seen improvements with TSE in multiple Focuses, the problems seem to derive from multiple places.

      If you’re unsure if your vehicle or a drivetrain part is still under warranty, I would definitely recommend reaching out to your local dealer and asking. I wasn’t aware of the 100,000 mile warranty extension, thanks for the insight Sherman.

      Are you at least one or two oil changes after the break-in period? If so, you are good to go adding FR3 to your next and subsequent oil changes…thanks!

    Great product! worked better than advertised. I bought 3 TSE bottles. Used TSE in three different vehicles. Vehicles age from 1996 to 2003, all have over 100,000 miles on them, the product eliminated check engine light in two of the three vehicles. All three vehicles now shift like new now. Amazing that adding TSE to transmission services helped all three vehicles. I would recommend using this product any time the transmission is serviced.

      For your F150, I’d visually inspect it for a possible leak to ensure we aren’t losing fluid somehow, removing the filler plug allows you to see the fluid level. I would ask the transmission shop to check the fluid level the next time you have the truck there; you can do this yourself, its just a little more involved than a simple dipstick. While this product is compatible with your transmission, I would recommend ensuring that the fluid is at the required level. If it is verified to be a little low, you could top it off with either OE fluid or our TSE.

    Took A chance, on the TSE

    (verified owner)

    I have an 05 dodge Dakota with the 3.7 6 cyl. which means it has the 42rle transmission, better know as the ‘trans of death.’ They all die young and for no reason, and with out much warning. my trans was starting to shift hard, you could tell everytime it upshifted. I knew it was just a matter of time until it committed suicide.. I drained out the right amount and replaced with the TSE and in less than 100 miles I could no longer feel any shifting. Its been about 2 months since I used it and its just gotten better. I am so glad I took a chance. This stuff worked wonders in my Trans and would recommend it to anyone with transmission issue that are not bad parts. It wont fix bad parts but sure made me happy

    My Allison 3000 has been downshifting hard for some time, I changed the fluid and filter and switched to Synthetic Fluid and it got better but still not like it was, so I decided to try TSE, I have only driven it 40 miles but it already is smoothing out.

    5 out of 5 Pretty Amazing Product!!!

    I have a 2001 Acura MDX, at 190K miles the transmission would not shift from 2nd to 3rd gear and I had to have it rebuilt, rebuild lasted about 10K miles and started not shifting from 2nd to 3rd again. Had it rebuilt again under warranty and build lasted 15k miles and again had 2nd to 3rd gear shifting issues (no shift and RPM would spin up tranny would not engage) and i would have to downshift manually to 2nd gear. So transmission was out of warranty so decided to change the transmission fluid and I tried about 3 or 4 transmission additives products (Bars Leak, Gum Out, Lucas) etc and none really worked, as a couple made it worse and one helped but not that well and again 2nd to 3rd slip and engine RPM revolution spin up and manual downshift (ugly when it happens in the middle of an intersection). I was about to try another transmission overhaul or get rid of the MDX but I ran across this product Hot Shots Secret Transmission Stiction Eliminator and I am very impressed.
    I drained fluid that was in pan 3.5 quarts on my MDX, so there was 3.5 left in the torque converter. I refilled with 3.1 quarts of new Honda fluid and added about 12 oz of the Hot Shot TSE product. I drove it for a few miles and it did slip a number of times but I kept driving it and noticed that it slipped again but it then shifted and it was not a hard shift, which in the past I would have had to manually downshift.
    I drove it again the next day and the shifting improved and it did not slip, I also noticed that the shifts thru all the gears were tighter and more smooth. Have been driving it for about a month now and it missed a shift once where in the past it missed shifts a number of times a day. Is the transmission like a new rebuild?, no, but is a slip once every few weeks manageable, heck yes. Bottom line this product works better than about 5 or so other products I used prior to the TSE product, and it is a ton cheaper than a rebuild. Again very impressed. Key Note: Only add what they recommend for your car and do not overfill transmission, also drain you transmission of fluid and refill but allow the TSE fuild to have room, so for example if you transmission holds 7 quarts, and you drain pan you need to add 3.5 quarts back but in this case only add 3.1 quarts and .4 quarts TSE product. Bottom line don’t overfill and don’s use more TSE additive than was is stated on the bottle. If you are unsure take the vehicle to a shop and have them drain, refill allowing room for the additive, and then add the TSE product. Bottom line give this product a shot if you are having automatic transmission slippage during shifts from one gear to another.

    5 out of 5 TSE really does work

    (verified owner)

    I drive a fleet vehicle for a company with an average 200 to 300 miles a day. It’s a 2002 F350 7.3 with a large utility bed, it has a little over 210k on the odometer. When I was assigned to the truck, I had no idea the maintenance that had been done to it. The truck would: hang in gears and was awful about not down shifting. I asked my boss if I could do my own routine preventive maintenace, he told me I could. So I did a fluid drain and fill (which my company provided the fluid), then I added 20-24 ounces of TSE (I provided). Within the first 500-600 miles I noticed a difference in the shifting of the transmission. I cannot tell you how glad I am that I found your product. There is even no more of the hard clunking sound when shifting out of park into a gear. The temperature gauge even shows a cooler reading when under a load. The truck pulls a hill without the constant down shifting. It’s almost like I’m in a different truck.

  20. Jack

    Question

    My 2003 Acura MDX regularly “slips” when downshifting from 2nd gear to 1st. It acts like the car is in neutral. I either have to slow down very slowly and depress the gas pedal very lightly (when going from 2nd to 1st), or I have to come to a complete stop. When I stop and then go, it drives fine. The only way to fix the “slipping” is to either come to a complete stop and let the car get into 1st, or to manually change the gear shifter to 2nd gear and drive away. Will TSE help this issue? Or will I be spending money on an issue that is deeper than that?

      Jack, this issue does sound like a lubrication/stiction issue causing that slip. I would recommend trying the TSE to see if we can clean up the transmission, if you don’t see an improvement let us know and we can issue a full refund. I’d definitely start with the TSE for trying to narrow this issue down.

      Spencer, thanks for the info. From the research I have done, it very well may be a sticky solenoid. I’m hoping that the TSE cures that and I’m back to normal. I already ordered a bottle from Amazon (fastest way to get it). I’ll only have one day to get it in before I take a business trip, but will check the results after I return. How long (miles or hours) will it take to notice any difference?

      It varies from application to application, especially if you’re just adding the TSE, doing a flush, doing a filter change, etc. Some users report almost immediately, others say within 100 miles. Tough to say without driving the vehicle or seeing the existing fluid’s condition, I’d say drive it for a few days and get back to us. Have a great holiday weekend, travel safe!

      When draining and refilling, you should get increments of roughly 5 quarts. The system itself holds roughly 11.4 quarts of ATF (4L60E with 300mm converter). I’d recommend draining the initial 5 quarts, adding about half the one quart bottle (approximately 16-18 ounces), then adding 4.5 quarts of ATF to top off the system.

    Will TSE work on my 2001 Acura TL 3.2L transmission? The tranny was replaced 2 years ago and is starting to jerk a little bit. I know my tranny solenoid filters were clogged with some sticky gel is what it looked like and is caused by heat, i was having shifting issues till i cleaned them and it started shifting great again. I assume that’s what is called stiction correct?

      Either way would work! We recommend when doing a fluid change if you’re currently experiencing any issues with shifts or stutters. Our cleaners work down to the the molecular level so you won’t have large chunks of burnt fluid/carbon floating around. The 1 quart bottle should be enough to treat both ways on most vehicles.

    Truck maintenance on '06 Duramax

    (verified owner)

    Recently purchased an ’06 Silveraod w/ Duramax that was in great shape. However, I did my due diligence and changed all fluids and filters. After reading about the Hot Shot products in various magazines and see them on truck shows, I added the products to my gas, oil and trans. Too early to see the benefits, but the truck runs as new, so I’m sure they’re working!

    I bought this for my 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 the transmission has started shifting hard from first to second and slipping in the other gears. I serviced it and put in 20oz after I cleaned it up I went on a test drive and from the very beginning I could tell a big difference and it just keeps getting better with each mile I drive.

    I recently purchased a used 08′ F250 6.4 turbo diesel. not knowing how or what the truck was used for or if the previous owner took care of it I started changing ALL the fluids in the truck. the truck had a slight miss at idle but ran good and didn’t seam to have any major problems. I used all for Hot Shot’s products everywhere I could in my truck. after the second oil change I noticed the miss was gone and the truck really started waking up, it really started running good. I use the Diesel Extreme in every tank full, carry it with me at all times, I really believe in Hot Shot’s products and will continue to use their products everywhere I can. I recently received a complementary double pack of their 8 oz FR3, I added it to the power steering fluid when I changed it out, I can really feel a difference in the smoothness of the steering box, no more chattering, I also added it to my lawn mowers, haven’t had it in there to see much difference but I do believe it will help it to live longer without issues.

    Just bought a very well maintained 2000 F350 7.3l with 388,600 miles. Transmission was replaced about 19K ago was having a abnormal shifting from 3rd to 4th locked. drained entire system switched from OE fluid to amsoil signature and added a bottle of stiction eliminator. 25 qts later (mag-hytech pan) and driving around town within about 30 miles noticed a huge change in how much smoother and firmer the transmission was shifting. Also used the Diesel extreme in fuel system with awesome results within the first 100 miles. Just tried the Stiction Eliminator with my oil change so will write a review on that in a bit.

      I used the FR3 in my power steering fluid, my hydro-booster had a small leak, nothing major but was leaving a mess on the lines and steering shaft but not making it to the ground. after several hundred miles I noticed that it has stopped leaking and I am no longer think of replacing the booster. works great!

      Currently Tractor Supply Co stores carry our Diesel Extreme and Stiction Eliminator, some select locations offer our Everyday Diesel Treatment and Diesel Winter Anti-Gel. Your local dealer might carry our Transmission Stiction Eliminator, or various online stores offer it as well; but unfortunately TSE cannot be found at Tractor Supply Co at this point in time.

    2004 chevy silverado. Unfortunately this product didn’t work for me I was really disappointed because I was expecting to see an improvement on the transmission sifting. I read all the good reviews I was excited because I’ve used this company products before and
    they work. I read the instructions poured 8 oz into the transmission because it take 5 quarts of transmission . I waited about 60 miles didn’t see a change so I add 8oz again because technically you have transmission fluid in your torque inverter. I still had the strong first gear jerking but I did notice the all the other gear smoother. I think I’m going to get all the transmission fluid replace and add a full bottle. I mean it’s worth a try. Since I’ve purchased 2 bottles if it doesn’t work I have the clutch replace.

    Cheap transmission fix

    (verified owner)

    My 2002 Ford F-350 had 225K miles when the transmission started slamming into 2nd gear. I figured I was looking at $1500 – $2000 in repair work. Then one day, I was in Tractor Supply and saw Transmission Stiction Eliminator on the shelf and figured at this point it couldn’t hurt. Within two days of putting in the transmission, ALL of problems have gone away! I have put another 15K miles on it, including a 5000 mile trip through the Rockies, and I haven’t had any more problems. That was the best $25 I ever spent.

      Hello Prince,
      We recommend our TSE be used in automatic cars requiring Automatic Transmission Fluid or a heavier weight gear oil.
      For automatic or manual transmissions that require an engine oil, we recommend our latest additive, FR3.
      Our discontinued Friction Reducer was compatible with manual transmissions, and while it’s been replaced with FR3, we have yet to develop a product that we currently recommend for manual transmissions.
      Thank you!

      Hello Robert,
      Slippage, shuddering, noises, and vibration are difficult to diagnose initially since they can all be a lubrication or slightly mechanical issue. Try the recommended dose of TSE as stated on the bottle, and if the issue turns out to not be a lubrication issue then you can take advantage of the money back guarantee and be reimbursed for the cost of the TSE and ask your mechanic for a next step.

      Your owner’s manual should say the total capacity is around 17 qts. A 1 quart (32 ounce) bottle of TSE is enough to treat your 48RE. If you’re currently experiencing issues with your transmission, or have high mileage, you could choose to use the entire bottle which would be roughly 1.8 ounces of TSE per quart of ATF. If you are just doing routine maintenance, have lower than average mileage (less than 100k) or just want to make sure your 48RE is clean and protected, than half the TSE bottle would suffice (just under 1 ounce TSE per quart of ATF). Remember, TSE replaces the ATF, do not overfill your transmission.

    Would this also work in a 1996 Subaru automatic tranny that has 145K miles on it?? The problem is the transfer clutch causes bucking when making a tight turn. It does NOT do it all the time but seems to do it more when it is hot out. On line, folks say to change the transmission/ transfer case oil to help the problem. How much TSE would I need to use, The Subaru owners manual book says the tranny takes 2.6 – 3.2 qt. Any ideas??

      Hello Mike,
      If you are dealing with a lubrication related issue, TSE is the solution to turn to. The temperature variable makes me believe it is a lubrication error. 5-6 ounces of TSE would treat your transmission if the manual states 2.6-3.2qts as your capacity. Please note, it replaces the transmission fluid, so you’d have to leave out 5-6 ounces of ATF if you do a fluid change or drain 5-6 ounces of ATF if you’d prefer to keep the existing fluid in there.

    I have a 1999 Ford F-250 that would hardly start because injectors were so bad. I bought Stiction Eliminator for diesel engines and put it in and ran it for a couple hours. I burned the starter up so I didn’t fool with it for a year. I put a starter on it and it cranked up immediately. I runs and idles as good as ever. This stuff saved me an injector job.

    Put some in my 1996 Dodge van with a carpet cleaning system in it has just turned over 200,000 miles has had some shifting into gear problems when Putting it in drive and reverse have to wait for it to engage only driving about 500 miles annually for a few carpet jobs didn’t want to replace the transmission figured I would give this a try I’ve only driven it to a few jobs and have noticed a remarkable difference no longer have a problem waiting for the transmission to engage, also own a ford 2003 with a 2006 6.0 turbo diesel have completely redone everything I PR remote oil cooler Amsoil bypass oil filter and so forth too much to mention now I am putting my attention to my injectors come spring when I roll it out of my heated garage I’m going to put hot shot secret stiction illuminator in for a regular maintenance program with my mobile one delvack one, when I found out ford flashes the computer to compensate for bad injectors to avoid warrantee that means when my injectors finally show that they are having problems it will be more than one Injector,sorry ford not waiting for that to happen!!👍

    I have a 1990 Ford F250 that had a serious shifting delay in the first 3 gears. I would have to let off the gas and wait for a shift and it could take some time to get into the next gear. I put the Transmission Stiction Eliminator in the trans and kept on driving. It took over a week but like someone passed a magic wand over the truck the trans has been shifting fine for 40K miles. I’m ordering another bottle for my next transmission service.

    Im not a big believer in additives, but I was having problem with my motorhome Allison transmission. So I thought I couldn’t hurt it anymore than it was, so I added the recommended amount and left on a 2k mile trip. Almost immediately it started shifting smoother. I drove the rest of the trip with no issues. When I got home I added some to my Dodge 2500 trans that wasn’t shifting smoothly either, well it worked. So this stuff works.

      Changed tranny fluid in my 98 Chevy 4×4 for the first time @ 60k and added “Slick 50” and new filter. No problems before or after but just thought I’d add it. This time, @ 98k I put in TSE and a new filter. I believe there is a difference in a smother operation. I believe in
      taking care of your vehicles and they will take care of you. After reading of all your reviews I think I made a very wise choice. I feel comfortable in a full recommendation. This truck runs great with 5k oil and filter changes and regular tranny changes giving smooth
      shifting! What’s to loose?

      Mike, if your Accord has an automatic transmission than TSE is fully compatible. Some manufacturers actually use ATF as power steering fluid, for these types of systems I would recommend TSE. Your Accord requires a Honda approved power steering fluid, so if you’re experiencing power steering issues our FR3 Friction Reducer would be a better option. FR3 has cleaning abilities similar to the TSE, and you can treat your engine as well. Many power steering issues arise from a problem outside of the actual fluid system; but I’d still recommend our products since we offer a money back guarantee on every bottle. Give them a shot and keep us in the loop, we’ll make it right if you’re not satisfied.

Transmission Stiction Eliminator is a low viscosity ester which has been shown to dissolve additives that have deposited on the metal surfaces in the valve body. This feature helps your transmission fluid to last longer and perform better by keeping the additives in solution.

Share this:
Share

The requirement for higher performance transmissions lubricants has increased considerably in recent years due to the introduction of new and sophisticated transmission systems. The transmission fluid serves as a hydraulic fluid, a heat transfer fluid and lubricating fluid. Over time, varnish and sticky residue (stiction) can form inhibiting the performance of the fluid. Our high performance ester formula is a unique lubricity and cleaning agent, that tenaciously attaches itself to all metal parts that it comes in contact with inside the transmission. The strong polarity pulls deposits off the metal surfaces and puts them back into solution. The metal in a transmission is nearly always positively charged while Transmission Stiction Eliminator is negatively charged. Attachment of a thin layer of Transmission Stiction Eliminator to all metals is natural and not dependent upon temperature, pressure or anything else. An added benefit is a reduction in temperature due to less friction on the critical moving parts.

Directions:

  • 1-2 ounces of TSE treats 1 quart of transmission fluid.
  • 3-4 ounces of TSE treats 2 quarts of transmission fluid.
  • 8 ounces of TSE treats 5 quarts of transmission fluid.
  • 16 ounces of TSE treats 10 quarts of transmission fluid.
  • 24 ounces of TSE treats 15 quarts of transmission fluid.
  • 32 ounces of TSE treats 20 quarts of transmission fluid.

Recommended Frequency:
Works best when added during a fresh fluid change; refer to the owner’s manual for recommended intervals.
