Stiction..

I was in the Tractor Supply today picking up brake cleaner. I noticed a jug wit “Stiction Eliminator” on it.

At first i chuckled, as it seemed like a joke.
Then i realized it was for diesel trucks.
Then i read its good for HEUI injectors!

I was just dreaming the other day of some cleaner that i could put in my oil to make the injectors work better.

Is this stuff any good?

What other magic elixers are there that i am unaware of?

I suspect something is clogging or not fully working in one or more of my injectors.

So the stuff is now in the truck.
2003 7.3L 445 cubic inch.

I am kind of scared. But the performance change seemed noticeable right away. Now remember, this is an older truck. And I bet there has never been any cleaners applied to the oil before. On the last oil change, i noticed something different. Almost a skipping cylinder, but not quite a full missfire. That is what got me thinking of an oil cleaner additive.

Anyway, the hill i traverse on the way out everyday...
I can normally get up it in over drive gear. But it’s like 3/4 throttle. Ive always thought that seems too much for such an engine as this. Just now it seemed i was 1/2 throttle or even a bit less going up.

I plan to run this around the engine a few weeks and then do another oil change to get it out.

I hope to report on whatever else happens.
Hopefully, its not disolving gaskets along with the dirt. Lol

Also, sometimes in life there’s good dirt. It’s plugging up holes.

HotShots has a money back guarantee

it works for a lot of owners (6.0) but in all honesty Archoil 9100 seems to be a better bet

7.3l injectors almost never ever has stiction like the 6.0Ls can have. Usually just flatout getting worn out and needing replacedment. Archoil ar9100 has been seen as a proven (I've seen it in two trucks) but for the 7.3ls they are kind of a bandaid once you're 250k plus miles. Glad you noticed a difference. Got a link to the brand?

Probaly packed with Boron and other mineral oils like arch oil or optilube etc.

I assumed he meant Hot Shots stuff since it is called exactly that but I could be mistaken. Hopefully he will chime in

I've seen Hotshots on the local TSC shelves, but not used it. I have used the Archoil 9100, based on advice from others here, cost is comparable. Noticable improvement in operation with the Archoil 9100.
