Has anyone heard of this working?

Today while at my Ford Mechanic we were talking about the three injectors he is replacing. He mentioned an idea I thought was interesting. remember this is a certified Ford Mechanic.

He said what he has done to several customers 7.3s and 6.0s to solve minor stiction issues is this. About 60 miles before an oil change he drains one gallon of oil. Replaces the plug and adds a gallon of #1 diesel to the oil. Drives it the last 60 miles and changes the oil again.

He said about 1/2 the time it will clean up the injector stiction issue depending on how severe it is.

Does anyone know if this works or why it would?

thanks,

BASHBRO1

Actually that has been a poormans oil treatment longer than I have been alive LOL.
That and ATF. Try takeing a sample of ATF and Marvel mystry oil and run em thru a Gas chromatograph ya may be surprised. In theory it helps dissolve parrifin build up. Altho I had never thought of it in the new injection systems. Does it really work.....who knows

Not a good idea, jump on over to the 6.4 board and look at how they're going nuts over 5% fuel in their oil on their oil analasys. Then tell them that you pour a gallon in your oil and see what they say lol

there is no other diesel engine like a HEUI, i would certainly be afraid to dump anything in HEUI system....not to mention the fact that driving a vehicle sixty miles with a gallon of diesel in the crankcase just seems completely stupid to me, and that is not counting the possible damgae that may occur to the injectors, thats just thinking about damgae to the bearings, seals, etc.

what about crank case explosion... they seem pretty worried about it on my ship. we have FOUR massive 16 cylinder stroke turbo charged diesels and that is one thing that the EN's (Engine men)talk about but have yet to experience
