Got sticky lifters?

I will start by saying I’m not a oil additive kind of guy. I bought this product for my 6.0 Powerstoke to see if I could postpone injector replacement on my engine. I know I will have to spend 2K for rebuilt Motorcraft injectors so what’s $45 spent to see if it works. My 65 Corsa has had one to 2 lifters that would occasionally bleed down overnight. I have been using the Motorcraft 10W-30 diesel oil so I know that is not the contributing factor. Lately one lifter has been consistently bleeding down and I thought what the heck let’s see if this makes any difference. I’m laughing to myself because after one heat cycle the lifter is happy again. For those suffering from the same thing it might be worth a try.

My Dad always said, "There is no such thing as a mechanic in a can."

Now days with modern chemistry advances...maybe there is such thing.

Forgot to say I've had good luck with this Bar's product.

AutoRx is another that works. I have a similar one and periodically one of my people say my 98 T100 needs a main seal. I tell them to add a bottle and it will go away. Close to a half million miles and no engine work to date. It also quiets lifters by cleaning.
