    2008 Duramax with 90,000 miles. I’ve not taken any road trips since the initial Stiction Eliminator treatment. Power and smoothness are improved.

    4 out of 5 Apparent Improvement

    STEPHEN GILLISS (verified owner)

    I used the product in my 1978 International Scout II 345 V8. On previous long trips to our national gathering, the Scout had excessive oil consumption. This year, after adding the product and casual driving in town, oil consumption was noticably reduced.

    After just one use at oil change I now have easier startups and the truck idles smoother.

    4 out of 5 Engine is getting smoother

    Quinton Reiff (verified owner)

    Been running Stiction Eliminator for just at 1,000 miles on my 2001 5.9L Dodge Cummins with 368,000+ miles on it. I was a bit hesitant at first but, I have to say the engine is running smoother. Very pleased so far!

    4 out of 5 The original stiction eliminator

    Neal Haverlock (verified owner)

    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,

    4 out of 5 This stuff works!

    I purchased my 2006 Ram TBD 4 weeks ago with 213000 miles on the clock and didn’t notice how bad the idle was at first. Pretty erratic, lots of white smoke upon start up, popping noises and about 600 rpm. I did the oil change and added the 2 quarts of stiction eliminator and put 350 miles on it. By the time the little trip was done, the idle smoothed out, quit popping and no more white smoke when I started it up the next morning. I am sure hoping that it is cleaning sticky injectors as it is advertised to do. Looking forward to putting some more miles on it and seeing if it improves or not. As of right now I can only give a 4 star rating seeing I have only put 350 miles on it. I will check back after at least 4000 miles to update my rating if necessary. But I am impressed so far. Thank you Hot Shot Secret.

      Wasn’t aware dodge utilized a HEUI system ;). Since you don’t have a HEUI system, this will not clean your sticky injectors. It will however clean the rest of the motor that the oil come in contact with.

    Was able to try out a new formula for gasoline engines in my 01 Audi A4. I was having lots of tapping and clicking from the engine bay and since I had a free offer I thought why not. So about a week into having it in a fresh oil change I can say my noises have been reduced by at least 80%. I honestly couldn’t believe it at first, especially on cold starts it would be LOUD, like bro your car sounds like a diesel. Now it’s back to being quiet with just a tiny bit of ticking which could be CCT but for all purposes I would give this product a recommendation. The first in its class to back up what the label says.

    Yes this is a real review, free product for an honest review.

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.”
– Lonny from Woodward, Oklahoma

“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.
