    I spoke to customer service and explained that I have oil consumption due to carbon packing. I was told to use Sticton eliminator. I ordered whole case and used ask recommended. It didn’t slow down oil consumption a bit. Actually it increased because oil got thinner. I went through whole case no result.

    Pirchase for my 2003 GMC Sierra 2500 Duramax diesel. 164,000 with a smoke issue. These diesels were know for a bad injector or 2.
    Called first and was told it would definitely reduce the smoke for the leaky injector and do many other things. Followed recommend instructions. New oil and Stiction. Ran till next oil change. No difference. Tried it again with new oil and Stiction and the fuel additive.
    Still nothing after 10,000 more miles. Actually I believe my truck is worse. I even video recorded it before and now and it is worse.
    I read the positive reviews and I am glad they worked for others but I would not recommend it to others.
    Btw, I rarely leave a bad review but….

      Hi Bob, below is the response from one of our diesel techs:
      The LB7 Duramax engine was notorious for its injector problems. We hear from at least 3 customers daily with this same issue. Diesel Extreme is the most helpful product for the issue, but can only clear it up maybe 50% of the time. Half of the time though, the injectors are just too far gone. The key to helping those injectors is prevention. We recommend upgrading the filtering in the fuel system, and running a lubricity additive with every tank. Something like our EDT.

Original Stiction Eliminator will stop excessive black smoke and bucking and chugging on cold starts. It not only cleans injectors but other parts of the engine as well, including the turbocharger.

Scientifically formulated to eliminate the stiction build-up that causes most injectors to fail. Pour one treatment of our Original Stiction Eliminator into your oil BEFORE replacing your injectors. In less than 4,000 miles you will see, hear and feel the difference as your injectors come back on line. And you’ll save thousands of dollars by not replacing injectors that weren’t broken to begin with!

When used in conjunction with Diesel Extreme (fuel additive), your engine will regain its original performance power. Recommended for ALL diesel and gasoline engines, even without symptoms like failing injectors, stiction is being made.

To increase the efficiency in modern diesel engines, manufacturers have increased the pressure at the tip of the injector. This increase provides for a better, more efficient burn with added power. Older injectors would put out 1,200 psi at the injector tip but the new diesel engines put out 26,200 psi at the tip. To achieve this increase in pressure, the manufacturers had to tighten the tolerance inside the injector. This increased the friction and temperature. The higher temperatures have a burning effect on the engine oil. A layer of oxidized oil and additives form, slowing down the injector and eventually stopping it altogether.

Originally created for International Truck and Engine, Hot Shot’s Secret is a formula made from a combination of detergents and dispersants, which can be added into new or used motor oil. Hot Shot’s Secret then works to remove build-up caused by the coking and varnishing left behind from overheating the engine’s oil.

“I drive a 2004 Ford Excursion which has 151,000 original miles. I was having problems with my fuel injectors and thought I was going to be in for a $3,000 injector replacement. However, after having added Hot Shot’s Secret, my injectors are not only responding better but have much better acceleration especially off the line. Hot Shot’s Secret saved me $3,000 worth of new injectors. The truck is running fantastic!”
– Dan from St. Louis, Missouri

“I drive a 2004 F350, 6 liter diesel. Current mileage is 135,000. I’ve driven the truck about 8,000 miles since I’ve added Hot Shot’s Secret. I was having hard starts when it was cold, acceleration lag, turbo lagged, and I was faced with a $1,500 option from the dealer to change 2 injectors that were sticking. I opted for a try of the Hot Shot’s Secret with an oil change. I would say within the first 200 miles I started to notice a difference. Easier starting, better throttle response. I have since changed out the oil that was in the Hot Shot’s Secret. The problems have stayed away. I do intend on using the product from time to time. It’s only been about 6-8,000 miles. Whatever’s in it, works great for me. I love it! Thanks a lot!”

“I drive a 2001 7.3 power stroke diesel. The pick up when I got it had 259,000 miles on it. It had poor maintenance habits done. After changing the oil and running a good flush through it, I purchased Hot Shot’s Secret, drained the oil again, and put fresh oil in, plus the 64 ounces of the Hot Shot’s Secret. Right away I noticed a quicker start up and smoother idle. Directly after the first 120 miles or so, it even got smoother, the idle got quieter, and the pick up seemed to have a lot better throttle response. I left it in for about 4,000 miles, drained it, then I put in new fresh oil and it seems like that the truck idles smoothers and runs better due to the Hot Shot’s Secret. It’s a great product. I recommend it to all my friends. I plan on ordering more in the near future. Thank you very much.”

“I have a 2004 Ford F250 with a 6.0 power stroke diesel. The truck has about 88,000 miles on it. I have been experiencing poor starts, poor acceleration, poor towing, and just a general lack of power and responsiveness in the truck for quite some time. I’ve had it in the dealership numerous times for repairs turbos and different things, and have lost one injector recently. I put in Hot Shot’s Secret about 3-4 weeks ago. I’ve driven about 500 miles since putting it in, and I have noticed a significance improvement in the overall power and response of the truck. It started easier, it’s quicker off the line, it tows better. It just runs smoother and better all around. It’s been a great improvement and the truck is running better now than it has in quite some time, even after the repairs that the dealership has been doing.”
– Christian from Utah

Typical Applications and Mixtures:

Recommended for ALL diesel and gasoline engines. We recommend using with a fresh oil change, ideally with a full synthetic motor oil. Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator is made up of 100% additives so it can stay in the oil for the entire oil change.

For initial cleanup in pickup trucks, add 1 bottle per oil change replacing 2 quarts of oil; for prevention, use half a bottle. For initial cleanup in semi trucks, add 2 bottles per oil change replacing 4 quarts of oil; for prevention, use one bottle.

If you have a diagnosis of a failed injector, then Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator will fix this problem, even if the injector is at the point of not working. Stiction Eliminator is a combination of detergents and dispersants that clean up the carbon and oxidation inside the injector. It also contains additives that make the motor oil work better. Friction modifiers and viscosity improvers make everything run smoother, with less friction and acid neutralizers help to prevent the built up soot in your engine oil.

We have been testing Hot Shot’s Secret since 2004 and have found it to be 86% effective. Trucks having problems were hooked up to a diagnostic computer and tested. Computer analysis showed anywhere from 1 to 6 injectors needing replacement. A treatment of Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator was added to the engine oil. The trucks were run only 100 miles and then the computer analysis was repeated. 86% of the time, the analysis showed all the injectors were back online. The owners noticed more power and a smoother running truck. The other 14% of the trucks showed improvement also, but not a complete cure. Most of the time, the diagnostic analysis showed that 4 injectors needed replacement before treatment. After Hot Shot Secret Stiction Eliminator was added to the engine, the analysis consistently showed only 1 injector needing replacement.
