    This stuff is amazing. My husband usually thinks my ideas are nuts, and maybe some are. I saw an ad for this striction eliminator for diesel engines and I thought, wouldn’t it be possible to use in the engine of my 2002 volvo? It’s not diesel, but wouldn’t it be great if it worked. My gas mileage had dropped to 17.1 mpg and it ran ok but not as peppy. I called the guy, expecting to get an automated response. The man answers his own phone!! I asked him about using the green stuff in my engine oil. He told me how much to add. He said it would work best if I added it to fresh oil. Being thrifty and worrying that if it was going to cause problems, I added Iit to the oil without changing it, just in case. The difference was immediate. My car was peppy. I know it is added to the oil but I have to tell you the whole system seems to be working better. The volvo is an XC90 AWD automatic with 168000 miles on it and it is running like a champ now. It seems to downshift easier, and it went from 17.1 mpg to 19.6 mpg within 1 week of adding the striction eliminator to my oil. My husband was so impressed that he took his denali in for an oil change and added it to his vehicle. His gas mileage has improved significantly too. He hauls a bass boat with his denali and said upon returning from a fishing tournament last week that the performance was significantly better and his mpg had improved too. I got an oil change yesterday and added the miracle juice to my nice clean oil. I will keep you informed on any changes. I am so excited about this stuff. I have been trying to find the transmission striction eliminator, but can’t find any around my area so I will order it on line. I don’t have stock in the company nor am I receiving anything for this review. I am on a limited budget and i would not usually spend “a little more” for something to add to the oil or gas or any auto fluids but I took a chance and it is worth every penny I spent. If I could give it 10 stars I would. I have been running around with my bottle of magical green juice adding it to family and friends cars and they are amazed. They think I’m a little nuts- but they are amazed.

    Great stuff. My f250 7.3 Power Stroke runs like new. Did the oil treatment and the diesel extreme; 135000 miles, no more smoke on heavy acceleration. 75% of smell gone when idling. You made a believer out of me, thank you.

    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!

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 please refer to the initial treatment chart above. For a maintenance dose use only half the recommended initial amount. Remember: the amount of Stiction Eliminator that is added replaces the same amount of engine oil. Be careful not to overfill.

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, Stiction Eliminator 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 Stiction Eliminator then works to remove build-up caused by the coking and varnishing left behind from overheating the engine’s oil.

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 Stiction Eliminator since 2004. 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. 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.
