    After about 7500 miles, I used the TSE. Even in a new truck I noticed about 1/2 MPG gain.

    Was having issues with transmission not wanting to shift down to 1st gear when stop at light. Used TSE and have not had this issue again. It’s been approx. 1000 miles since used TSE.

    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. Thanks for making such a great product.

    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.

    1 out of 5 Big Disappointed

    (verified owner)

    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?

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.
