Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator Reformulated for Diesel Engines

Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator, first introduced in 2004 to resolve issues related to clogged or malfunctioning HEUI injectors for the 6.0 L Ford Power Stroke, is now available with a new formulation that removes close to 100% stiction from any gas or diesel engine.

Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator, first introduced in 2004 to resolve issues related to clogged or malfunctioning HEUI injectors for the 6.0 L Ford Power Stroke, is now available with a new formulation that removes close to 100% stiction from any gas or diesel engine – Audi, Volkswagen, GM, Ford, Chrysler, Cummins, Caterpillar, Power Stroke, or Duramax.

The term “stiction” describes the gummy, sticky residue of caked-on oil varnish build up that occurs on diesel injectors, bearings, turbos and engine components. Stiction buildup often results in hard starts, rough idling, black smoke, failed injectors and turbos, reduced power and fuel efficiency. Higher pressures and higher temperatures have a burning effect on oil that deposits the gummy residue on engine components affected by the oil system. Hot Shot’s Secret’s newly formulated Stiction Eliminator is formulated to effectively clean and lubricate the entire oil system from the turbo, bearings, injectors, rings and oil pump.

Recently completed third party testing of the new formula utilizing ASTM D4828 Standard Test methodology, demonstrated that Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator removed 92% of stiction; significantly more than tested leading competitors.

Available in four sizes: 16 oz., 1 quart, 2 quart and 1 gallon sizes, Stiction Eliminator is available online and at major retailers and service stations nationwide including Love’s, Pilot Travel Centers, Petro, Tractor Supply Company and NAPA.  The recommended treatment suggests 2 oz. per 1 quart of oil for the initial cleanup, and then 1 oz. per quart of oil as maintenance every third oil change.

When you’re installing new cam bearings in an LS engine block, the first four (from back to front of the engine) are usually no problem. That’s because the block helps keep the cam bearing installation tool centered in the bearing bores. But when it comes to the front cam bearing, there is nothing to keep the installation tool centered in the bore. That means the chances of that bearing going in cockeyed are pretty high.
