I was going to replace my injectors in my 1991 300D, but my mechanic recomened using the Diesel Purge first, to see if that would quiet down the injectors and it made a hell of a difference!!! Much quieter now!!!

Another succes story. Tonight we used the diesel purge on my friends Ford Pick-up truck and it worked. What is so ironic about the situation is that he is a mechanic and he told me that the truck will not get quieter, due to the way the power-stroke diesels operate.
I am still amazed on how well this stuff works. I have never seen a "bottled" product work so well.

Try Red Line products. You think Lubro Moly is good? Heh, try Red Line.

Does anyone know of any commercial brands of diesel injection cleaner aside from the two mentioned here? Have you used any of them?

I've used Chevron Techron in a '77 300D. The label says it's ok to use in diesel engines. After using it, my fuel guage suddenly stopped sticking below 1/4 tank. Now I just use Redline Diesel fuel catalyst, a generous ounce per ten gallons. It does seem to help the engine run a bit stronger once it's warmed up.

Since I bought my car several weeks ago I've had what sounded like a dangerous clatter from the valve cover. Since I haven't had it checked by an MB tech yet I've been fearing the worst. After reading about DP here I thought that I ought to give that a try before I go any further. So I ordered two cans from the Mercedesshop and had some time to try it this weekend.

I followed the instructions on the can and ran it through in and out. My 16 wheel driving brother-in-law was helping out and he put his big screwdriver on the valve cover to try and hear which cylinder was making all the racket. You should have seen the suprised look on his face as the noise simply vanished about 30 sec into the proceedure. I couldn't believe it myself.

This stuff realy did what it claims it will do.
