In a TDI? We don't have oil-fired injectors.

Their fuel additive should be good, it's Primrose Fire Power 404.

It is all about are your injectors clean which is not typical on a well maintained TDI.

I sent the link to a neighbor who is planning to have all eight injectors replaced on his 65K mile 6L powerstroke to fix stiction. It may be worth a try to avoid that $1800+ bill.

Some powerstroke owners swear by ZDDP also to help injectors

Tell your neighbor to get about 4 cans of Seafoam (about $40). Remove the fuel filter on the engine and remove the diesel fuel. Fill the bowl with Seafoam to the level where the diesel fuel was. Replace the filter (must be done or engine will not start) and start. It will run rough and make a lot of smoke. If that does not help, put 2 to 3 cans in the engine oil and run it hard for about 50 to 100 miles. Drain the oil and put in a good SYNTHETIC oil. I have a Ford 6.0 X with 100K on it and Seafoam has been in the fuel and oil since 15,000 miles. Have never had a turbo or injector stiction issue. I use Royal Purple synthetic oil and lubricants.

You are absolutely right! That is SOLID advice! You see I have actual experience with RP products and don't believe the fairy tales that others put forward who have never tried RP products.

I have and continue to use RP synthetic oils and lubricants in everything I own - cars, trucks, boats, farm tractors, etc. - since 1995. I have never had an issue or failure with any of their products.

I use Racing 21 motor oil, Synchromax in the tranny and 75W-90 rear gear oil in my '04 ZO6 (4 years). I use Racing 51 motor oil in my '96 Scarab 22 and 75W-90 gear oil in the Bravo 1 outdrive (7 years). I use the TCW III 2 cycle oil in my Evinrude E-Tech. I use 20W-50 motor oil in my two diesel farm tractors and 15W-40 motor oil in the three gas tractors (15 years). I use 20W-50 motor oil, Synchromax in the transfer case, synthetic ATF in the tranny, synthetic power steering fluid and 75W-130 diff gear oil in my '04 Ford Excursion 6.0L PSD (5 years).

I was told on the FTE site that if I used RP synthetic ATF in my 6.0L diesel torque shift tranny that it would kill it. 30,000 miles later with RP ATF, the tranny actually shifts better, shows no signs of slippage and the ATF looks a good as it did 30,000 miles ago. I did not buy the Ford propaganda that I MUST use their SP tranny fluid.

I have had and continue to have nothing but outstanding results with Royal Purple products and will use Royal Purple 5W-30 motor oil in my TDI when the 36,000 mile free maintenance expires.

I'm not sure how much the Royal Purple 5W-30 costs... even if it was $2 cheaper per quote compared the cost of the 507.00 oil at the dealer you are only saving ~$50 by the time you get to 100k miles.

You are saying that Royal Purple is so awesome you are willing to save $50 and risk your $15,000 engine on it?

No real risk.

If he was actually willing to take a risk, he wouldn't wait until the warranty was out....

What kind of oil is currently in the powerstroke with injector issues? DO NOT USE ROTELLA in a 6.0L....causes injector failures. My friend has a ford high performance company in KY. He know's PowerStrokes in and out!

He was running Rotella 15W-40 and just switched to Rotella 5W-40. Reports problem is slightly less bad with the 5W-40. What oil does your friend recommend?

Tell your 6.0 friend to use a 5W-40 or 15W-40 SYNTHETIC oil. The motor will start easier and run quiter.

Injector stiction is caused buy "coking", burnt oil residue stcking to the oil side of the injector moving parts. Dino oil is know for this. The injector tolerances are very tight. The burnt oil residue decreases those tolearances resulting in stiction. Synthetic oil will not burn and cause stiction. The same thing happens in the 6.0 turbo compressor variable vanes and the shaft bearings. Synthetic oil eliminates a lot of problems in the 6.0.
