I've heard good things about TriboTEX, but $99 is exorbitant.

It supposedly lasts 40,000 miles "the coating" so it's not terrible when amortized over this period I guess. I mean if it does reduce friction for 40,000 mile I guess the wear/tear you save over that time compensates for it?

I just ordered a tube to try. I got some cash from my cashback rewards on my Mastercard I get yearly at this time. I'll squirt it into the Caravan and see what happens.

Appears to be primarily an Ester product, perhaps similar to what's used in RLI shrug

Interested but I will stay with Archoil 9300 instead. Lasts for 50k miles so its rated similarly to TriboTEX. Seems all the good oil/additives find esters as their cure to fix problems.

Ripoff for $5 it would be worth trying.

Amazing Amsoil engineering alone is not enough to reduce the engine wear?

I’d rather get a bottle or two of decent single malt

Even if you did what could you conclusively determine by trying it? That is the thing with these additives, for the most part there is nothing the consumer can do to tell if they do anything, good or bad. The additive companies know this and prey on it by making vague claims that can't be proven nor disproven, usually starting off with a lot of "up to" statements. This one in particular throws in the coolio "nano" term to wow the audience and uses the word "can" a lot (not "does").

What's rock stupid about the whole thing is that there are standardized tests that could demonstrate the additive's efficacy but surprisingly they are never published. How odd they don't share such proof with their potential customers.

At least with this juice we do get the page of useless "Reviews", normally called "testimonials".

I could see this on a worn motor but what problem is this product addressing in a well maintained engine running good oil? Would it not be more cost effective to just tun Redline or Liquid Moly or Amsoil SS or another one of the unicorn tear long OCI brews with a (edit - mod) of esters in it already? There were a few reports of these type of additives causing issues with camshaft position sensors and VVEL actuators as well FYI.

Scars remind us of where we have been, but do not have to dictate where we are going.

I used the Diesel tube of the stuff, it did quite the idle down but not enough for me to scream tribotex for the whole world to hear. I also didn’t really see a decrease in wear numbers, I’m sure in a big rig that vibrates and has a lot of engine noise it may have a benefit for any trucker who may be trying to lessen that but then again they may have chose the wrong profession if that’s the case.

Mine is arriving tomorrow. As I have oil temperature and coolant temperature digital read-outs along with what my scangauge shows I will let you know if I see any change after adding it. The temperature is going to be stable over the next couple of days as well.
