      Hi Chris, don’t think about a rebuild yet until you try the Diesel Duo! The Diesel Extreme Fuel additive will clean the injectors and fuel system in the first tank-full or 2.

      While the Stiction Eliminator won’t “fix” non-HEUI injectors, with that many miles, it will restore everything the oil comes in contact with. Keep us posted on results and remember we have a money-back guarantee!

    Truck was running rough and fault Code for #3 injector came on. Being out in the middle of nowhere on I-80 in Nevada, I bought a jug in Mill City. By the time I got to Reno, the code cleared and is now running smoothly. Thanks for such a great product.

      Hello! I would say besides our Blue Diamond Oil, the Shell Rotella T6 is one great option for synthetic in a 7.3L. Also, it is a disproven fact that it will hurt to switch between regular, semi-synthetic, and full-synthetic oils; especially in “modern” engines.

      If you are still not convinced, you’ll still have great results with Stiction Eliminator in any oil!

    I purchased this product for my 2010 Ford F-150 about 1 month ago…..changed my oil and added this as well. Within only a few days, I could tell that my engine runs and idles smoother and quieter.

    Performance is exactly ad advertised. At 100 into the oil change, smoking is 95% eliminated. Still struggling going uphill at 1200 rpm, but it’s now in 10th gear as opposed to 9th or even 8th. Cummins isx with over 1.3 million on the block. Turbo response is way better. Oil temp208 to 212

      Hello Jim. We recommend a full dose of Stiction Eliminator, then, a half dose every 3rd oil change; FR3 Friction Reducer is for use in oil changes in-between Stiction Eliminator. With that many miles it wouldn’t hurt to use 2 full doses of Stiction Eliminator back-to-back.

      For your Mazdaspeed3, I’d recommend a dose of our Stiction Eliminator to get the oil system cleaned out. Everything from the oil pump, to the turbo bearing and oil control ring will be cleaned. Following up with our FR3 would be the next step, this ensures both wear reduction and engine restoration. In a 2007 Dodge Ram, we saw a dyno-proven 5% horsepower increase using FR3. Turbo engines, whether diesel or gasoline, love the friction reduction of FR3.

    I was impressed by the warranty for the diesel guys and when I found I could use it on my gas truck I jumped at the chance. I have a 2008 Dodge Ram pick-up with the 5.7 Hemi and I have 113,000 miles on it. I wanted to make sure I can double that so I wanted to give the stiction eliminator a try. I added both it and about 10.5 oz. of FR3 at my last oil change and will give it some time to see if I notice a change,

      Hi Corey, With that few miles, Stiction Eliminator won’t be necessary but FR3 Friction Reducer will keep the oil system clean long term. Most importantly, though, we strongly recommend treating the fuel system with Diesel Extreme followed by EDT. There are some YouTube videos with great EcoDiesel results plus the testimonial below!

      Tom Wilson – December 31, 2016
      “I recently purchased a 2015 Ram EcoDiesel that was a trade-in. It had 98K miles on it. After driving it 400 miles home I got my first engine code: Turbo underboost sitting at idle. GULP????? Bad Turbo? now what?. After going to a local dealer and talking to guys on forums, it kept happening. Of course it would go into limp mode when the code was set so all I could do was reset the code and keep on trucking. Finally, one day I got an injector code along with the turbo underboost, and I wondered “dirty Injectors?”. So i got the Hot Shot Secret Diesel Extreme and put it through my system. I doubled the initial dose-I wanted to hit it hard. Well that did the trick. I have not had one turbo code or injector code Since I used the Diesel Extreme. (P.S. I since have concluded and have evidence that the dealer where I bought the vehicle knew about the codes, and had replaced the ECM among other things to deal with the problem- to no avail). I got a great deal on an EcoDiesel because the dealer was scared of it, and it only needed Hot Shot Secret to make it run like new.! thanks for a great product. I’m sold.”

      Mike, if the oil only has a few hundred miles on it, then you’ll be alright draining the two quarts of oil out, then refilling with the Stiction Eliminator. Anything over 1,000 miles I’d recommend to hold off until the next oil change, but sounds like we don’t have to worry about that.

      We have a money back guarantee, so if you’re experiencing stiction issues that you need corrected, and you don’t see maximum results or are not satisfied, let us know and we can send another bottle to run with a fresh oil change.

      Sean, absolutely! We’ve seen great results with turbo cars! Seems like manufacturers are introducing a new turbo gasoline engine every five minutes these days, all of which can benefit from Stiction Eliminator. We have a money back guarantee; if you don’t notice your engine or turbo running smoother, get a hold of us and we’ll make it right by you. Thank you for your time!

      John, we’ve had great success with the cam phasers on the 5.4’s. We offer a money back guarantee on our products, I’d recommend starting with Stiction Eliminator when trying to chase down a cam phaser issue; even if the issue ends up being somewhere else we still honor the guarantee. Keep us in the loop!

      Since 6.0L’s were made before the ULSD mandate, they were designed to run on fuel that contained more lubricity than what we find in pumps nowadays. Biodiesel has helped restore some of that lubricity, but running an additive like our Everyday Diesel Treatment (EDT) is very beneficial for every diesel on the road today and 1-2 ounces will treat an entire tank so the treatment cost is minimal.

    I’ve seen this product advertised extensively on many of the Saturday morning car shows. It peaked my interest enough to research it on the internet and purchased it to augment my maintenance routine on a Kubota Diesel engine . Excellent results in cleaning internal parts of stiction and a noticeable improvement in power ! I’m beyond impressed and ordering more for future maintenance.

    I have a duramax lly , it has 10 quarts of engine oil. 64 oz seems too much based on your chart ? I was going to use 32 oz for initial cleanup or should I use 48 oz? shouldn’t the oil filter be changed faster since stiction will be released?

      I’d recommend a 32oz initial dose, and then a 16oz dose every third oil change. Our Stiction Eliminator attacks stiction and carbon build up on a molecular level to prevent damage to the engine, clogging of pickup screens or plugging of oil filters. When you drain the oil the contaminants will be flushed out. Thanks Peter!

    5 out of 5 A Must For Preventive Maintenance in Fleet Vehicles

    (verified owner)

    2002 F350 7.3, with about 210k. When buying this product I was skeptical about it, seeing how there’s no body I know personally who uses this and I couldn’t find a review of it on Youtube from a individual’s point of view. So instead of buying the 2 quart bottle I bought a 32 ounce bottle of it. My oil had already been changed a week or so ago before adding it. And I didn’t want to drain 2 whole quarts of fresh oil out. So I just drained 1 quart/32 ounces. Now knowing it probably wouldn’t work as fast as if it had been full strength or not. I took a shot in the dark. What I realized is that I should have used 2 quarts, because unlike other products, this stuff worked within 1000 miles. My injectors and engine bay is a lot quieter than before. It idles smoother than it has in 2 years. I also added the Diesel Extreme to the fuel and FR3 in with the oil when it needs topping off. My truck outperforms the other trucks in the fleet.

      Tommy, we fix more than 9 out of 10 “failing” HEUI injectors, and offer a money back guarantee if we can’t help. I put an apostrophe on the “failing” because we need that injector to be able to fire, even if just barely. If the injector is 100% dead, it might be an electrical issue like a shorting wire or FICM issue. As long as you can get the truck started, I’d recommend a Diesel Duo (Stiction Eliminator and Diesel Extreme) in this situation so we can clean both sides of the injector. We originally developed this product for International and Ford when the 6.0L’s were coming back for warranty work, so you’re in the right place. If you can get the truck started, let’s run a Diesel Duo and go from there. We’ll cut you a check for the cost of the Diesel Duo if it doesn’t help. Keep us in the loop Tommy!

      Admin (verified owner)

      John, the carbon build up we see on TDI EGR valves are a combination of soot from the exhaust and oil mist from the CCV system (crank case ventilation). Stiction Eliminator will clean the entire oil system, the EGR is not part of that system but there is a slight chance that Stiction Eliminator might slow down the formation on the EGR valve; key words are “slight chance” and “slow down”. Stiction Eliminator will not be able to clean the EGR valve since it is added to the oil system. We’ve seen reductions in soot and exhaust opacity using Diesel Extreme and Everyday Diesel Treatment, I’d recommend one of those for preventing EGR build up before the Stiction Eliminator.

    Question

    I am preparing to do my first oil change using the Stiction Eliminator. My 2000 7.3 Powerstroke has 197,000 miles on it. I also purchased the diesel extreme to go along with the first full tank after the oil change to achieve best results. I know that since the 7.3 takes 15qts of oil, I should replace two of the 15 quarts with the Stiction Eliminator. How much of the diesel extreme should I put in a full 39 gallon tank after the oil change? I’ve read that the ratio is 1:2 (32oz of diesel extreme to 64oz Stiction Eliminator). Is this correct?

      Hello Spencer, I would recommend a 16oz dose of Diesel Extreme for your 39 gallon tank; if you have over 100k miles or are experiencing issues, then a back-to-back dose of Diesel Extreme will offer an unmatched deep clean. Or use 16oz now, and save the other half of the Diesel Extreme for after summer (6 months/ 6k miles). Thanks!

    Question

    Just picked up an 04 F350 6.0 with 98k on it. Had my local shop do oil change and filter changes (restored oil/fuel to OEM instead of the aftermarket ones that were on it). Recently I’ve noticed some bucking when it’s not fully warmed up so I’m suspecting stiction. Just purchased the Stiction Eliminator/Diesel Extreme combo from you. Since the oil change is already done, should I find a way to drain out 2 quarts to add in the Stiction Eliminator? if so, any suggestions so this doesn’t turn into an oil bath for me underneath the truck?

      Unfortunately we haven’t found an easier way to drain oil other than through the drain plug. We’ve had enough practice here so we know it can be done with minimal mess, but other than an oil extractor most people choose to go the oil-hand-bath route. Sorry for the inconvenience Nick!

    Been running This for about 500 miles after my oil change with Royal Purple 15w40 engine seems to start easier, maybe a bit more quiet 7.3’s are loud regardless, smoother idle and acceleration. Along with this i have used the Diesel Extreme and transmission stiction eliminator all have showed me results in my 200 f350 with 388K couldn’t be happier i will continue to run these additives and in between oil changes i plan to use the FR3. Great product guy.

    I own a 2016 Colorado 3.6 VVT that is brand new that I use FR3 in as well as Stiction at separate oil changes but I also have a 2012 Traverse with the same engine with around 80,000 miles and I want to use FR3 and Stiction together in same oil change but your tech sheet say not to use with each other are they not compatible with each other? The camshaft actuators are hydraulically actuated with engine oil on both engines in efforts to keep the high miler clean and sealed I want to use FR3 and Stiction to get the benefit of both products, what are your recommendations to accomplish this?

      We recommend using FR3 on the oil change after the Stiction Eliminator treatment. FR3’s benefits are much more apparent when added to a clean engine. Typically it takes 30 minutes to get FR3 completely circulated in an engine, using Stiction Eliminator also cuts that time down. FR3 and Stiction Eliminator are compatible with one another, but we recommend using them separately for cost effectiveness. Stiction Eliminator has some friction reducing properties, and FR3 contains some cleaner to ensure FR3 can reach under varnish or deposits to reach the metal surfaces inside an engine; so you’ll still receive similar benefits using just one at a time.

      Ron, Stiction Eliminator works to clean varnish, gunk and stiction down to the molecular level so the existing engine oil can safely carry and eventually remove it when you drain the oil. Filters, ports, passages, pick up screens are all safe!

    5 out of 5 Restored power to my 7.3

    (verified owner)

    I have a 2000 f250 with just over 200,000 miles, My fuel mileage had dropped to 8-9 mpg, acceleration was disappointing, and cold starts were very rough. I had a couple of mechanics tell me the injectors were probably bad. I decided to try the stiction eliminator and it made a huge difference within a week. Fuel mileage went back up to about 14, and the engine is making great power again. I can hear the difference in the injectors when it’s running. I was really amazed that this product could work so well. I have a friend who has several Powerstroke trucks in his construction fleet and I talked him into trying the product — he had the same results. The product works great !

    I used secret stiction on my 1999 F350. It had gotten to the point that any temp 40 degrees or below I would have to run my block heater several hours before cranking AND hook up a battery booster to crank it. One oil change with 2 quarts of secret stiction and about 100 miles the issue started going away. By 200 miles it was like brand new….No trace of the problem, no more block heater, no more battery booster. I am a complete believer….The proof is in that 2 quart bottle. I’m sold forever!

    I'm a believer!!!

    I am a skeptic, I have an 07 2500 5.9l. At about 130,000 miles I started to get a bit of rattle. Not all the time mind you but a rattle. Changed the fuel filter and oil. Still there. About a month later it began to get worse started sounding like a machine gun at certain throttle points. Intermittent rough idle, blue smoke, a distinct miss but again it was all intermittent. I had finally started getting a “miss detected #5” code that would clear the next day. only twice mind you. I had all but resigned myself that I had deposits and leaking injectors (lots in internet research) on at least #5. Tried several different fuel side cleaners to no avail. I figured at $54 v. $350 for a new injector I would give it a whirl. As the title suggests I’m a believer. after 150 miles now I have almost no intermittent issues. Still have a few hiccups, maybe at startup once in a while it will smoke for a sec then smooth out and purr like it should. The difference was almost immediate for me and distinct. I noted the strong smell the first couple of mornings but that has gone away. I will keep it going for the 4000 miles and keep using the recommended half bottle at each oil change. What an amazing difference in my beast, I love it. Worth every penny for me. If you have symptoms like I describe give it a shot.

      Jerry, absolutely! Oil control rings and turbo bearings are typically the hottest temperatures that oil will see inside of a gasoline or diesel engine. These temperatures break apart the hydrocarbons found in engine oil, leaving carbon deposits. These deposits can starve the turbo bearing of the necessary oil and cause catastrophic failure. Our own ASE Master Mechanic uses Stiction Eliminator in his F150 Ecoboost, we definitely recommend a dose to help protect your investment!

    My 01 F-350 with the 7.3 has always had Rotella 15W 40 ran in it, now it has 376k miles on it and was starting to smoke on start up. I started using the Stiction Eliminator and the start up smoke almost completely went away. This time I used a semi synthetic oil with the Stiction Eliminator and the start up smoke is gone. I’ve noticed a MPG increase as well. Now I’m using the Stiction Eliminator, FR3 and EDT. So far I have more power and better MPG by 1.9 and seems to be getting better with every tank.

I would put the rest of the bottle on the shelf and run that initial treatment for a full length oil change. On the third oil change, I would use the rest of that bottle.

I would put the rest of the bottle on the shelf and run that initial treatment for a full length oil change. On the third oil change, I would use the rest of that bottle (10-11 ounces). If you’re currently experiencing issues, I would recommend a full synthetic, our Blue Diamond is one of the top oils on the market, but any high quality synthetic readily available will do. If you’re using Stiction Eliminator as preventative maintenance, then whatever engine oil you’re currently using will be sufficient.

      Once the injectors reach the point of keeping a truck from even starting, it is very difficult to get them cleaned out. We have a money back guarantee so Stiction Eliminator is definitely worth a shot, I would add to the oil fill cap and the HPOP to try to get it in multiple places. If you can get a hold of a scanner, try to measure monitor the Injection Control Pressure while the engine is cranking. 6.0’s won’t start if the pressure is not at least 500 psi.

      Clint, Stiction Eliminator works great with all conventional, semi and full synthetic and any kind of high mileage engine oil blends. If you’re experiencing symptoms of stiction, or any other kind of rough idle, vibration, noise, temperature or issue of that sort, Stiction Eliminator with a full synthetic oil has proven to correct these issues more quickly compared to Stiction Eliminator/conventional; but the effectiveness over the course of an oil change interval is very similar. If you’re running strong and only wanting to maintain your engine, conventional is perfect. Thanks!

      Stiction Eliminator is an engine oil additive, most users will add the recommended dosage while completing an oil change. Stiction Eliminator replaces engine oil, so if you add 1 quart of Stiction Eliminator you will leave out one quart of oil to prevent overfilling. It is fully formulated to remain in the engine for the entire length of your oil change.

Stiction Eliminator won’t be able to affect your injectors, but Stiction Eliminator will clean your turbo, oil pump and the rest of your oil system while reducing friction. Extended turbo and engine life, a proven fuel economy increase that pays for the product, reduction in noise and vibration, and a money back guarantee if for any reason you aren’t impressed with the product.

  108. Marinus

    Question

    I have a 1996 F350 7.3 powerstroke with the ZF-5, I have a napa air filter, 3″ downpipe to 4″ straight pipe. My truck is running on 6 or 7 cylinders at start up and runs extremely rough until warm, then it idles fine. BUT, if I give it any throttle it just starts running like garbage, no power, definitely missing on 1 or 2 cylinders. So far I have replaced both under valve cover injector harnesses, all 4 pigtail plugs for them, the cam position sensor, re sealed all 8 injectors, and replaced the drivers side glow plugs, replaced the fuel filter twice, ran amsoil fuel system cleaner with no luck. I have no check engine light, no tuner, I have the factory idle controller. I’m afraid if I drive it like this it will blow up. I live in Canada and it ran great when warm all winter, always sputtered a bit when cold. Has shell Rotella T6, Hastings premium oil filter, both installed 1500km ago. My oil pressure is in normal so I don’t suspect a clogged oil cooler, voltage is good as well. All fuses and relays are good. Is there any way to test my injectors? Or my IDM? Or will your products help save my truck?

      Marinus, the injectors and IDM can be checked by someone with a analyzer. We would suggest using Stiction Eliminator, sounds like a classic case of tricky stiction. We offer the money back guarantee so I would definitely try a fresh oil change and a two quart dose of Stiction Eliminator before trying to chase anything else down. Keep us in the loop!

    Question

    I have a 2004 Duramax (LB7) and for the last 9 months have had fuel issues. I’ve had almost the entire fuel system – injector pump, filter assembly and filter, and control module – replaced. Now the repair shop is telling me I need new injectors. There is a slight hesitation when I start it in the morning, and can drive it 5 or 50 miles. But afterward, when I turn the key after even 2 hours of just sitting, it won’t start. Lately, I’ve had to wait 8-24 hours. I know that the LB7’s have had injector issues, and that very well could be the problem. However, a friend of mine highly recommended your product before I spend the small fortune on new injectors. Your ad says that it should be applied while changing the oil, but I had that done just before finding out about Hot Shot. What do you recommend?

      Bruce, here’s a testimonial from a Duramax owner that was told he needed new injectors. http://www.hotshotsecret.com/hot-shots-secret-not-just-powerstrokes/

      I would recommend a Diesel Duo, this will ensure the fuel system is clean, lubricated and any existing fuel quality issues are taken care of. Stiction Eliminator will help smooth every part of the oil system to make sure there isnt a hiccup on the engine side. If you have done an oil change in the past 1,000 miles you can drain the amount of oil you desire and refill with Stiction Eliminator, since we are trying to diagnose an issue a fresh oil change with Stiction Eliminator is not a bad place to start. Don’t forget we offer a money back guarantee!

    Question

    I periodically run Stiction Eliminator in my 1999 F350 7.3 for the HEUI benefits, with great results. I just purchased a 2017 Ram 2500 Cummins. Minus the obvious HEUI benefits, should I run the Stiction Eliminator just to keep the overall motor and turbo clean and gum free?

      Hi Robert,
      With that many miles, the Stiction Eliminator will have a restorative effect on everything the oil comes in contact with.

      I’d also highly recommend a tankful of Diesel Extreme for full results. We’ve performed 3rd party dyno tests (on a Cummins engine!) and when used simultaneously, the products improved the highway fuel economy by 8.7%.

      Timothy, you can use the Stiction Eliminator and FR3 at the same time, but you’ll see a bigger “bang for your buck” if you use the Stiction Eliminator to initially clean the oil system and then use the FR3 at the next oil change. FR3’s benefits can be seen more quickly and are much more apparent when added to a clean engine!

      Hi Robert,
      The Stiction Eliminator loves synthetic oil, so go ahead and run it with the T6. It is recommended to use a half dose every 3rd oil change, SO the FR3 should be used with the in-between oil changes. Hope that makes sense!

      Luke, depending on the color of the smoke, I’d recommend running a Pick Up Prevention Pack to ensure the oil and fuel systems are both in optimal condition. 1 Quart of Stiction Eliminator would be perfect for your oil system. Don’t forget about our money back guarantee if your issue is not resolved! Thanks!

      Yes! The 6.4L does not have HEUI injectors like the 6.0L, BUT Stiction Eliminator will clean your oil system, turbo bearing, oil control ring, oil pump, etc.
      Also found in Stiction Eliminator are advanced friction reducers which will immediately work to reduce noise, smooth vibration, improve fuel economy, and extend the life of your engine and turbo.

    I have used this product for several years now, It does a great job on cleaning all aspects of the oil side. I can tell a benefit in power gains.
    In a 7.3 you may need to pull out old oil in the High pressure reservoir, and refill with stiction eliminator.

    I own a 2005 Ford F-350 6.0 it currently has 240,000 original miles I was told by a friend to check out The Hot Shot Secret web site and I did. I came across the this product read the reviews and knew I needed to try it well I did and the results was just as stated quicker start up’s, the injectors became much more quite. I highly recommend this product and the diesel extreme together. I also just purchased the newest product FR3 can’t wait to try it on the next oil change I have been using REVX if the FR3 works as they say it will this will be come my go to oil additive and it’s much more cost effective.. Thank You Hot Shot for helping me to keep my truck running at its best!!!!

    5 out of 5 I'm liking all the great reviews. But how about a PX-9

    I like all the great reviews especially how recent the dates of the reviews are. I have a common rail system in a Paccar Px-9 built by Cummins with Cummins injectors. Is it possible to have stiction. Truck just like day one except cold mornings it goes through a moment of buckyness and smooths out. If I had to look for anything else to complain about it would be the latency in throttle response and what sounds like noisy injectors when I’m driving while it is doing a working re-gen while driving. Peterbilt said they can replace all 6 for $10,000. It’s a 2015 I have no codes but they say 1,3,and six failed test 4 I took the truck back and am running down the road just like day one. They gave traumatic stress ever since.

      Eric, with the PX-9 we’ve actually seen a common issue arise from a caution in the PX-9 operator manual.

      The caution reads “Do not allow your engine to idle, at low rpm’s (400-600 rpm), longer than five minutes. Long periods of idling after the engine has reached operating temperatures can decrease engine temperature and cause gummed piston rings, clogged injectors, and possible engine damage from lack of lubrication. The normal torsional vibrations generated by the engine can also cause transmission wear. If an engine must idle for an extended period of time, it should be done at fast idle (1,000 rpm or greater).”

      First I’d ensure that you are outside the warranty period; 100,000 miles/ 5 years/ 3,000 hours typically for PACCAR. Since they wanted $10k I’m assuming you surpassed the mileage limitation, but anytime you don’t have to foot the bill is a good way to go. If we’re outside that warranty period then no worries! For your issues and symptoms you listed, and your engine, I’d recommend running a dose of Diesel Extreme through the fuel tank. Diesel Extreme can clean the inside of the injectors against the clogging mentioned in the warning, as well as improve fuel quality, disperse any moisture in your tank, help with injector noise and definitely improve throttle latency. Benefits are long lasting, and this product is recommended every 6 months; this is definitely where I would start.

      Stiction Eliminator has a list of benefits for your PX-9, but unfortunately your injectors aren’t on that list. If the injector issue is an underlying clogging/lubrication issue than I would suspect the oil system would benefit from having Stiction Eliminator clean and lubricate it. We offer money back guarantees on our products, so you’ve definitely come to the right place to look for a little insurance plan and peace of mind from issues down the road. Thanks!

    5 out of 5 A must buy product thats amazing and cant beleive its not in every autoparts store.

    (verified owner)

    I religiously use stiction eliminator and many of the other products from Hot Shot for my 7.3’s
    When I developed a miss I started using stiction eliminator and it smoothed out with in a 1000 miles. I noticed immediately that morning start ups became easier.
    My buddy bought a 7.3 and I talked him into putting in stiction eliminator because even though the truck had only 85k on it ,it ran rough and loud. Previous owner did little maintenance. Again like mine it slowly quieted down and ran smoother and smoother. Fuel mileage went up as well. He started out with 14 mpg and now 16+mpg and that’s without using EDT.
    EDT is another product that your just stupid if you don’t use it. Everyone I know who use it gets 2-3 mpg more plus all of the benefits of protecting your engine.
    I notice a difference when I don’t use not just by mileage but starting and stopping in traffic. Don’t be a puss try it out a bottle all it can do is help!
