Call me crazy or whatever.............I'm gonna try the Rev-X stuff.

I have not read ANY reason not to...just a lot of bloviating.

Anyone have facts as to why NOT to run Rev-X?

Hot Shot Secret - concensus is no.
Rev-X - maybe. They are kinda testing it. I think it's Dave and someone else are testing it and say it works.

I am not a fan of these mechanic in the can soloutions either. No facts or figures just over 40 years of seeing these things if used improperly cause more troubles than they fixed. Fuel cleaner additives which are mainly naptha or some other highly volital fluid that burns hotter than diesel.ostensibly to burn off excess carbon. They work but if improperly mixed can burn a hole right thru a piston.

Oil leak treatment s work mostly by causeing the rubber in the seals to swell,sealing the leak. What they neglect to tell is once added you have to keep adding it or the rubber shrinks back even smaller than it was and begins to deteriorate the rubber.

Just my opinion tho.

Thanks for the info. I found some more naked wires on the injector harness, I'm going to replace it in the morning if I can find a new one.

Me too, however some of these things DO work.

Sometimes things such as sticking injectors CAN be FIXED with this type of product, especially when it's oil related.

Now, I'm not for all the Z-Max's, Lucas', STP, etc. But I do think this has some merit.

Plus with Dave being our guinea pig...why not.

Well Pick, and Choctaw I have a 2003 F250 6.0 PSD with 133K on it and about 2500 miles ago i didn my oil change and added the 64 OZ of HSS to my truck due to 3 sticking injectors i have always ran 5w40 rotella in my truck i did notice a smoother start, and now with the HSS being in there for almost 3000 miles which should be around christmas it has seemed to help alot my truck isnt missing anymore and my MPG have returned back up to around 19 so in my case it helped me out plus it comes with a money back garantee. if you have any other questions just PM me
