Hot shot secret

Ok so I got mine yesterday, Added it to my oil only put about 30 miles on it so have not noticed any diff, I have not started it yet this morning so not sure if it helped at all, of course it says it takes up to 1000 miles to take full effect, but i just wanted to let the guys guys who where wondering about the stuff that i did start using it and will keep you guys informed on any changes in the truck, as i do know i have atleast one injector not working and a couple sticky ones, in the morn when its cold! I will keep posted on anything good or bad, i added it towrds the end of the oils life got bout 1500 miles before its due for a change just fyi. Hopefully it works great and will turn out to be a good product for use all.

Waste of money and bad on an engine. Along with many other members here, i am very against oil addatives. The oils come in the bottle with additive packages already in them and then when you go adding others to it you throw the balance off and who knows what kind of bad things can happen.

The only addative i would ever use is Lucas, and that is only on an engine that has a rod knocking because it seems to help quiet it down and last a bit longer. But it doesn't matter if the addative damages anything because the motor is dying anyway.

I'm like all the others. I spend way to much money on oil and I just don't think adding something to it will do anything...

Never tried hot shots secret but I work on heavy duty trucks and we have one customer that insists we add a bottle of lucas to his new oil when doing a oil change. I am not sure what the lucas claims to do because I have never read the bottle. But we have been putting this stuff in his oil for years. The stuff is so thick that we have to sit the bottle in a bucket of hot water for a while just so we can pour it into the engine.

Anyways this guy was in a few weeks ago for a valve adjustment and when we pulled off the valve cover everything was covered with black sludge. The inside of that engine was probably one of the dirtiest one I have seen.

I am against any of those oil additives.
