Stiction can be a serious problem for diesel engines.

In a nutshell, diesel stiction is a buildup of gummy residue created by the breakdown of small amounts of engine oil.

Want a more in-depth explanation on stiction? Check this out.

Stiction can significantly affect a diesel engine’s injectors, O-rings, springs, pistons, or turbocharger(s); causing misfires, difficult starting, excessive smoke, clogged fuel filters, and general poor performance.

If that sounds like your diesel truck, you may want to check out Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator.

It is not a friction modifier or lubricant. Hot Shot’s Secret Diesel Stiction Eliminator is formulated to remove the residue buildup inside your injectors and other engine components.

Simply pour one treatment into your engine oil and it begins working immediately. Hot Shot’s Secret says you’ll see a noticeable improvement in less than 4,000 miles.

A single treatment could save you thousands of dollars in unnecessary injector replacement.

Scientific, third-party testing revealed that Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator was more effective at removing stiction than any of its competitors.

It has been shown to restore failing injectors and improve both power and compression.

This stiction eliminator is smart preventative maintenance too—even if your diesel engine doesn’t show any of the common symptoms now, stiction is still occurring.

Excessive diesel stiction is a known issue for the Ford Power Stroke diesel, particularly the 6.0L and 7.3L engines. But any diesel engine (Duramax, Cummins, Caterpillar, Mack, etc.) can benefit from Hot Shot’s Secret stiction eliminator.

    The article did not address gasoline engines at all, and any possible benefit. Did you not read all their literature when writing the article or did you determine something other than what their material says? Thanks

    • OnAllCylinders Staff says:

      Hey Jim, the focus on the article was specifically for diesel injectors on Power Stroke and other diesel engines–but you’re correct, this can also be used in a gasoline engine to clean the engine and reduce friction.

  2. Is it available in Australia? If so where.
