      Yes absolutely! It is less of an additive, per se, and more of an enhancer/supplement to any automatic transmission fluid.

    Transmission Stiction Eliminator

    Earl Lozon (verified owner)

    Very satisfied with product. Used in my 94 mustang and within a few miles I could see improvement in shifting. Transmission would shift out of overdrive and start reving. Has not done it since use of Stiction Eliminator. Would recommend product and have.

    I'm LOVING THIS PRODUCT

    Chris Brahs

    I have 188400 miles on my 2011 Ram 3500 diesel. Recently my transmission started making some strange noises so today I did a transmission service and also Hotshot’s Secret TSE. All I can say is WOW! It’s NEVER shifted smoother. Noise is 80% reduced. Temps are down. I can’t say enough about this product. I also use their engine oil and fuel treatment and LOVE all of their products. We also started selling Hotshot’s Secret products at our shop and we have a hard time keeping it on the shelf. Brahs Solutions Inc and our customers love Hotshot’s products. Thank you TJ and the crew @hotshots!!!

    Bruce (verified owner)

    My Chevy truck has over 100K miles. I added this when I change fluid and filter for added performance.
    It shifts beautifully and runs like new. Used it for reassurance that I’d have many more miles of trouble free
    shifting. I’m very adamant about all fluid changes. I’d recommend it.

    4 out of 5 '96 Impala SS Transmission Problem

    Gary Eaton (verified owner)

    Purchased Transmission Stiction Eliminator last fall for my ’96 SS. Valve body(s) seemed to be hanging up causing slippage between D and OD due to not being driven more than 50-75 miles/year. Added fluid and only got to drive vehicle for 5o or so miles last fall and will be getting it out of mothballs next week. It did appear to improve some in the short time I drove it and look forward to more improvement as I start to drive it more. Then I will be able to give a more honest review. I feel a good long run on the interstate will loosen things up and get rid of the slippage as this was never an issue before I stopped driving it 18-22 months ago due to health issues.

    MH (verified owner)

    2005 F150 Supercrew 4WD, transmission was giving a hard shift when going from 45-52 mph and felt like it was almost slipping but was intermittent. Flushed my transmission system, installed a new filter and added the TSE and almost immediately I could notice the difference. No issues so far and back to performing the way it was years ago! Thank you TSE you did more than expected.

    Howard Smith (verified owner)

    I have a 2003 vw tdi with an auto tranny. At 525,000 I replaced the original tranny with a 2002 01m out of the junk yard. It was shifting hard and throwing codes. I used the recommended amount of TSE and the transmission began to shift smoother and has not thrown any codes. This is a great product and works as advertised.

    I put the TSE in our family vehicles and with in a short time I could not believe the difference in our 96 chevy Silverado pickup with a 350 under the hood it increased the horse power and mileage. It use to shift hard and now you do not even feel it shift I recommend it to all my friends and family.

    I had higher expectations for this product, I had a slight 2-3 hesitation and hoped this would alleviate the issue. Sadly it did not. And I was sure to have the cleanest possible fluid. I ran about 20qts through the transmission before adding the product. As of today I still have the hesitation

    Bought a used 2004 F350 6.0 and new some routine maintenance had been neglected. Rough shift in third and elevated trans temps in normal driving. Added to the current fluid and notice much smoother more firm shifts on all shift point. Temps seem down as well. Very satisfied with this product, will be adding to my next full fluid/filter change!

    5 out of 5 this shift is awesome

    andrew (verified owner)

    originally bought this for a 2003 Chevy express Van transmission.
    because the transmission was banging into gear and hunting all the time and I swear it slipped one time when I went from reverse back into forward .

    so I added this product and I feel like the transmission is better than it was when it was new .
    the Van has 246,000 miles on it .

    so I figured I’ll try it out in my 2012 ram 2500 Cummins 68 RFE transmission .
    I already had Schaeffers all trans supreme in it .
    but after adding this I feel like the transmission is shifting even better than just having just the Schaeffers in it .

    so now I have been putting this in every car or truck I get a hold of 👍

    Waiting on my results...

    Gary Eaton (verified owner)

    The transmission in my ’96 Impala SS started slipping in OD; probably from not being driven much. I have only averaged less than 200 miles/year for the past five years so the slipping in my opinion is due to not being driven. However, I did add 8 oz. to the transmission last week and drove it ~35 miles. I feel this ‘stuff’ will start showing positive results as soon as I drive it more. I’m having too much driving my ’07 TrailBlazer SS AWD which will get its dose of both products that I purchased.

    I have an 89 Camaro with a 700R4 that started to have sift point changes. It would change from 1-2 at 3500rpm, 2-3 at 4000 and not go into OD, which resulted in a slight burning of the oil. I reset the TV/Detent cable and it helped, but the shift points are still not ideal. I will be draining the oil and replacing it with fresh synthetic and the TSE. What might I expect to see after the fluid change, and is there anything else I can do to restore shift points?

    I have a volvo v70 XC 2001 with 166K miles. It’s only issue is the tranny (aisin-warner aw55-50sn) which is a notorious unit for sticky valves leading to rough shifting from 1-2 and 2-3. The accepted cure has been a rebuild, but I’d like to try to avoid it as long as possible. Is TSE effective for this? How much should I use?

    Well my 2014 Jeep wrangler never shifted correctly and now it is almost perfect and my mileage is up about one mile to the gallon.
    I also have a 2011 Honda Accord which shifted pretty good but now it is just better and also almost perfect.
    I am a major sceptic and finally a product that does what it is suppose to and the longer I use it better it seems to work in both vehicles.
    I have less than 500 miles on both vehicles since I added TSE to the transmissions “EXCELLENT PRODUCTS”.

      Hi Dale, with all Hot Shot’s Secret products, the best results are with a fresh fluid change AND designed to stay in for the entire interval.

      The best products to start with in both are: Stiction Eliminator, TSE, and FR3 Friction Reducer. (Is the ’01 F250 a diesel? If so, also use the Diesel Extreme fuel additive twice a year followed by EDT every fill-up).

My 2002 Chevy Express 3500 Van would shutter while driving at different speeds and accelerations approx 150,000 original miles only owner and very well maintained. Still I was stumped on what to do. Asked trans shop on their opinion, we would have to tear it down to be sure. I added the TSE and as of now have put about another 1000 miles on it. IT QUIT SHUTTERING and I can now feel the trans shift gears. You have got to try this before you spend a lot of money on a rebuild.

      TSE will work great in the Ody. There are significant transmission issues with them, specifically with 3rd gear clutch pack. Put an in-line Napa Magnefine filter in transmission cooler line and use Valvoine Maxlife or Amsoil Trans fluid. This is a drain and refill procedure so you will be slowly “diluting” the Honda Fluid and replacing with a superior fluid and TSE. After 3 drain and refills (Do Not Do a Flush), ADD TSE. Also run the Original Stiction Eliminator for an oil change then Run FR3 and you will see a Noticable difference in drivability AND MPG. This can be verified on many posts on ODYCLUB forums. I got over 160k miles on my first Ody which was an 06. Second one we traded in after 100k and the Ridgeline after 100k. These products are fantastic in these vehicles.

      For transmission use the Transmission Stiction Eliminator. For cleaning the oil system, use Stiction Eliminator. In transfer case and differentials, please use FR3 Friction Reducer (also use in crank-case between treatments of Stiction Eliminator). Since that is a gasoline engine, checkout a product called 406 Injector Perfector for regular fuel system cleaning, thanks!

    I used Transmission Stiction Eliminator in my automatic transmission along with new synthetic fluid and a new filter and Stiction Eliminator in the oil. The transmission quickly stopped slipping and towed my trailor without difficulty. It is good to note that you can drain ALL the trans fluid from Fords, even from the torque converter (by removing a plug). Why don’t other manufacturers do this? Probably to save a few pennies.

    I have a 2004 Ford Excursion with the 6.0 and the five speed Torqueshift transmission. The listed capacity is nineteen quarts. Would it be safer to use the whole quart or just the recommended amount?

      Hi Eric, that is close enough to the recommended treatment ratio to use the whole quart of TSE (as long as you are replacing a full quart of ATF).

      Hi Dave, this is a perfect opportunity to try TSE! It is guaranteed to help or we’ll give you your 25 bucks back! Please stick to the 1 quart to 20 quart ratio (which looks to be roughly half a bottle in the case of a 700r4).

    Power steering pump on my F150 was squealing like a stuck pig. My mechanic said nothing I could do. I drained out the old fluid, replaced with fresh ATF plus some TSE (because I had some in the shop – Informed FR3 works even better).
    Amazed at the immediate results!!
    This stuff REALLY WORKS!

    Have a 57 Chevy with a stout sb350 and th400 transmission that is programmed to shift hard. The car was in storage for about 7 years after which all fluids were changed engine primed and she fired up. However was shifting from 1st straight to 3rd about 52oorpm. Replaced modulator and adjusted very low. now will shift from 3rd down to 2nd but not from 1st to 2nd. Do you think TSE will help in this situation?

      The TSE has a very good possibility of restoring the shifting. The seals and transmission itself have dried out, leaving a residue behind that is preventing the transmission from operating correctly. The TSE will clean out this residue and increase the efficiency of the transmission fluid, bringing it back to life…or your money back!

      Yes, Transmission Stiction Eliminator is safe for use in CVT transmissions. With the inherent properties of the esters, it is supplementing the existing fluid; essentially dissolving and recirculating the original fluid’s additives, that have built up on metal surfaces over time.

      As with any of our products, please adhere to the dosage ratio stated on the label or “How to Use” tab…thank you!

    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 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.

      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!

    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.

    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

    5 out of 5 Pretty Amazing Product!!!

    JD Texas

    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

    John (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.

    Question

    Jack

    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?

      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!

      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.

      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?

      That sounds like a classic case of stiction! TSE will work in your TL, give it a shot and let us know if we fix your issue. We offer a money back guarantee and will refund the cost of the product if you’re not impressed. Thanks!

    The owner’s manual for my 2007 Nissan Titan states that only a specific type of transmission fluid should be used. Is this safe to use in my truck?
