Keep your oil clean, use proper CJ-4 oil rated for your engine and forget about wasting money on additives, you don't need them if you maintain regularly.

I have to agree with whitenite. I have tried everything in the 5 ctd I have owned over the past 15 years. I have pulled 20000 lbs. over 1,000,000 miles and have been interested in cutting repair costs forever. syn. oil don't do it, by-pass doesn't do it. Added coolers don't do it, and additive don't do it. Best result, good quality oil, best oil filter you can find with regular oil changed . and DO IT YOURSELF! donot have those knuckle head quick oil change shops pull a Goober on you.

I find Synthetic oil a waste because, I have used both Amsoil and Lubricating Engineers oil, I also have a commercial Amsoil account. Both recommend oil analysis and both recommended me to change my oil at 10,000 miles. In my opinion this does not out way the cost of the oil plus I have to pay for an oil analylis to tell me to change my expensive oil. No thanks. I'd rather change mine at the recommended 7500 mile intervals with a good grade dyno oil. As far as filters, there are allot of high grade filters out there. I usually use a fleetliner statmore, sorry I forget the number of hand, (old age). I have used mobil 1 in a pinch with no issues. Stay clear of cheap filters, especially Frams, I won't even buy the Mopars any more as I heard they are nothing but paper filters, maybe that's why you can find them at walmart now.

I saw this stuff on Truck U. The selling point with hot shots is that if you have a stuck injector, add this to the oil and let it run and it doesn't free it then they will refund your money....personally I'd just stick with changing the oil when it needs it.

all the trucks are gone but I have a 1995 BlueBird RV with an 8.3c

I believe he meant the LF16035 Fleetguard Stratapore (I think that's the number..going off memory).
