Winning Tips

Tip #1

From Gilbert Santavenere

Eliminate black smoke and prevent burnt injectors by using an effective diesel fuel additive. For example, CRC Diesel Fuel Therapy and Diesel Injector Cleaner with Anti-Gel. Use routinely as preventative maintenance, or if you’re experiencing poor acceleration and black smoke give your fuel system a shock treatment right now.

Tip #2

From Greg Dillon

Spray out your grill with a water hose after all long trips to clean bugs and other debris out of the radiator and condenser (if equipped with A/C). This helps prevent overheating when you are idling or stuck in traffic by providing proper air flow through these parts.

Tip #3

From Stephen Olea

Clean the components that contain oil or have oil on them with a water-based degreaser; for example, engine, transmission and differentials. This will remove build-up that can cause excess heat and will help diagnose oil leaks and ware marks from components rubbing against each other.
