I kn0w all history of all my cars and considered an extended family mechanic. This product had been handed to me by one of the automotive club members and close friends to try since I am a believer of all classic approach to the maintenance: religious oil changes at the proper interval. I have a hauling 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 truck in my shop that is starting to have a faint but very distinct rod knock and at 360000 miles it kind of close to expecting issues like that. As you could image, this truck is on the road a lot! So if it does not work, it would be definitely the best rig to try it on. So I picked up mail and applied as directed, the whole tube into a warmed up vehicle. Then I started a car, and it sounds just like it sounded before, no changes right away. Still tick-tick-tick-ing at me as before. I left it idling and returned back not in 15 minutes but forgot about it, and it idled for almost an hour. To my genuine surprise, the engine sounded much quieter!!! I took it for a spin and it is noticeably driving better! So for about a week of daily driving the mileage was slowly climbing up to where it was when the car was new. I think for total immersion they should be selling it with a new car smell :-) Now about a year after this car still running at 380000 and get comments from anyone who works for us and drives it on "nanotechnology" sticker. So, since then I have used it in every car we have with various results. Newest one being 2013 Subaru Outback where it reduced significantly but not eliminated oil consumption. We added it to our shop compressor oil (half of the ml mixed with oil), and it reduced pumping time from empty to full pressure by about 15%. But the fascinating thing was to use it in my AR-15. I put a dab on about 20 bullets and shot manually i can tell that accuracy increased and barrel warms up less.
I am a driver with 50 years on the road and rebuild my first car engine with my dad when I was 14. Retired military veteran. I tried many additives and not received long-term satisfaction. Pledged early on Kickstarter because of DOD funding those guys got. Little thumb size syringe arrived in the mail in a crafty plain box. It did wonders to our V6 Camry with 310000 miles and two timing belts replaced. The car was in our family for a long time and our daughter got through college in it. After injection, it took about 3 minutes to notice that motor started to become quieter and after about a week of driving it turned into smooth running ant torque picked back up just like we first drove it off the lot! This stuff is the only one that gave such a strong effect on an old car. Returned and got treatment for a semi. Big syringe arrived with different color stuff. In my Cat engine, my MPG went from mid 5's to low 6's. The engine is much quieter and has way less vibration. Noticed that oil stays clear quite longer and less blowby. Looking forward for rear diff product!
Did not notice any improvement in any regard.
Put it in my semi truck with 1,000,000+ miles. Immediately noticed a smoother idle & noticeably less engine noise thru the transmission stick at highway cruising speeds. Seems to have a bit more power too. Haven’t checked fuel mileage yet, but am pleased with the results I’ve seen.
Put it in my 97 Dodge Dakota that has 214000 miles on it and was as noisy as a sewing machine. Since I used Tribo Tex it has gotten very quiet and I do believe my mileage is better. I know for sure that my oil pressure is much better at a cruse it is up between 40 and 60 now so I am Very happy with my purchase and will continue to use Tribo Tex. I also added it to my new rebuild 02 Dodge Intrepid that I built to give it more protection as well as my old Murray Riding mower I have everything I own running Tribo Tex so folks when you have a worn engine give it a try I did and I am Glad and Grateful!!
I added both the transmission and engine Tribotex simultaneously.
My HHR has just over 208k miles, with the GM 4T45E automatic transaxle and the 2.4L Ecotec 4cylinder engine.
Neither engine nor transmission was particularly causing me concern. Engine would start right up, decent power, smooth operation. The transmission functioned well, though inconsistent in when it would shift smoothly. Shifts were quick, though a greater tendency to jerk into the next gear. Torque converter lock up could be harsh, especially with more throttle.
I felt it an ideal testbed for the new Tribotex transmission formula. Having already used the engine treatment, on another vehicle.... I knew the results were going to be astounding.
I made myself wait until the 500mile break in period was done, before writing this review.
I'm going to gush about this marvelous invention. I was ready to give a five star review at 200miles. It completely smashed any thought of what my car was going to become, after installing the treatments.
Transmission: huge improvement! Like 90% new. I think if I changed out the solenoids... I'd basically have a new transmission. The shifting is almost entirely smooth and imperceptible, save for the change in engine torque. The torque converter lock up, at any engine speed or throttle input, has became entirely smooth, with very occasional glitches. Even engaging the transmission (going from park to reverse, then reverse to Drive) has absolutely no feel to it. Downshifting is so quick, it's almost like driving a CVT.
Engine: worlds of improvement! in terms of start up feel, vibration, power delivery (this engine has never felt particularly powerful, merely adequate. After the treatment, it pulled like I had just added turbo charger... Even with the car loaded with my camping gear) even in day to day driving, the engine is much less strained. I can keep the rpm's around 2k and get up to speed effortlessly. I also noted that it would cool off much quicker, say after coming the top of a hill.
Anyone who is dreading a massive repair bill, check out Tribotex first! I estimate that doing... nothing, save for fluid changes, my transmission and engine have another 150k of life, At least.
Thank you for this amazing product!
I've added TriboTEX to harleys,trucks,cars,boats,lawntractors,farm tractors,kubota rtv,s gearboxes differentials and all I can say is "WOW" absolutely amazing the money I've saved in fuel and oil has more than paid for itself I have many customers who have had the same experience with it as well thank you for such a wonderful product cant wait to order more
I'm sorry, I really am, but I have observed no noticeable difference in the fuel mileage nor performance of my truck. I followed the instructions to the letter, and gave it a proper chance to take hold. I have since put several tanks of fuel through both without and with a heavy load. I am sorry to say I have noted no change in performance. On the upside, I've also not had any problems either, so, yeah! I was hoping for better results to report.
It certainly shines in applications where substantial wear is present which is older vehicles with more thank 100K miles. So reach out to us to understand is your vehicle just in tip top shape or your performance issues are related to something else.
