ever heard of this stiction fix

I was told today to put 1 gallon of fuel in my oil, then idle the truck for 45 minutes with no driving just oil. After that change the oil while warm, put in new filter and oil and enjoy your revived injectors. I don't think i have the balls to do this.

umm fuel would be trapped in your hpop/oil system. i have heard of this on gas motors but only for a few min and with a warm engine to start drain some oil put in equal amount of diesel in and idle for a few min then drain to clean junk out

^^^^ I agree, I can't see how you would get all the diesel saturated oil out of there. The engine valley holds what? A quart and a half? or more?

No way. Like Jethro said, this is an older trick on old gas motors. I put diesel in the oil system of an old 292 Yblock to clean it up. And even when I did that, I had all intentions of tearing it down and rebuilding it in the near future.
