Cold Stuttering Fixed w/ Hot Shot's Secret
I just wanted to throw out my 2 cents on this, since I'm so happy with it.
My truck (2013 LML) has been doing something odd for the past 5 years after it rolled 20k miles. Before it warms up, not stone cold, but right at the first tick on the temp gauge which I think is 180 degrees, if you roll past 50% throttle, it would make a stuttering sound. It ran find, and power was smooth, but it sounded horrible. Like if you'd be embarrassed if your Ford/Dodge friend heard it. I searched and found nothing about it, so I had no idea how to address it. I just always drive easy until it's warmed up.
Well, now that I'm at 33k, I added Hot Shot's Secret Stiction Eliminator at the last oil change. I ran that for a couple weeks and noticed nothing different in regard to the stuttering. Then I added 10 oz Hot Shot's Diesel Extreme to the fuel. After a couple weeks, the stuttering stopped!
I don't normally believe in snake oil remedies, but this seems to have worked in this case. And the truck is running awesome too. So, I'm pretty stoked about that.
