Default Anyone used this stuff?

I have what I am 99% sure is cold start stiction issues. This stuff claims it is 100% guaranteed to fix stiction issues or your money back. I tried some different stuff a while back( can't remember the name of it but it wasn't Rev X) & it didn`t help. Probably a waste of $$$ but just wondering if any has tried this stuff.

I have put that in both my trucks. Cant say I noticed much difference. neither one was running badly tho. On my latest one I am going to change all the injector o rings and put in a set of new glow plugs. It takes quite a bit of cranking and smokes quite a bit on the cold starts. I'm planning to do this while installing veg fuel lines. Figured good time to do it. The parts don't cost much more then a couple bottles of that stuff.

I've used it in my 6.0L and it seemed to help. Never know if it's actually doing something or just wishful thinking...

just going by what I read on the internet ( and of course we know it's got to be true if it is on the web ) . It does seem to help the 6 liters more than the seven threes. From the reviews and comments anyway.

I used it a couple of times in my 6.0 and noticed no difference. I won't buy it again.

Ive never added any additive to the motor oil on any 7.3 Ive owned, and I never plan to.
I didnt know 7.3's even had to worry about stiction.

I never have.
I just change my oil every 5-6k

If its low on power untill it warms up, I would suspect one (or some) of the injectors are "wore out".
Thats a technical term.

Stiction is common in 6.0s but not in 7.3 AFAIK.
Never heard of a 7.3 with that issue.
