Cerma Engine Treatment

Has anyone used the Cerma engine additive in their trucks? It states that it treats the metal parts in your engine not the oil. So you don't have to keep adding product every oil change like the Rev-X. Could really use some opinions here.

I've not heard of it. Way pricey!! $238 for the small diesel treatment??? Yowser! I think I'd have to know more about it before I put something like that in my engine or layout that kind of $$.

I don't know.......having those ceramic particles running around in there and knowing they are passing through the injectors. I'd be nervous about how they are going to affect injector performance. I don't want to say I'm skeptical, but.....I'd need to know a lot more.

I spoke to a rep from the company yesterday and he quoted me $308 for engine, transmission, transfer case, front and rear differentials and power steering treatments. Considering everything that covers, $308 is not bad considering it is a one time treatment.

I would agree that I am concerned also about the injectors. There are some videos on their site that you guys may want to look at.

I use Rev-X now and I'm not too impressed with it. Pretty expensive and I have not seen that good of results so I am always looking for something better.

If your injectors are that bad, replace them.

This product sounds similar to EnviroSave that I have treated my truck with.

After looking at the site and the vids they show what appears to be a 6.0 after the treatment. They say that the truck was terrible before the treatment, but the video only shows after the treatment. So, there is no way to tell if it is legit or not. However, the one thing I did take from the video is that the treatment can be used in a 6.0 HEUI system.
