Should I consider Rev X ??

Hello all. My 05 is getting very hard to start when cold. Even when she sits for about 4 hours in 45 degree weather it's getting hard to start. Smokes and sputters til it reaches operating temps. After she warms up she runs fine. I was diagnosed with a bad injector but I'm thinkin that since it runs good after warming up maybe Rev x would help?? Plus, how do you put it in your truck? Any info is greatly appreciated.

NICE lookin ride!!! I hate to say it this way but the Rev-X seems to be our only hope of avoiding injector stiction issues. Many on this site and on comp d have saved thousands of dollars by running the Rev-X. If your injector has flown south for good though, well, it aint commin back.

Put the rev x in mine last oil change about 1500 miles ago. Had hard starting rough idle when cold too. Rev x smoothed it right out, well until the check ball on the hpop blew out, now I'm pulling the motor and spending $$$ on lots of upgrades I just added 8 oz when I did the oil change.

Thank ya. Yeah, I'm lookin forward to tryin the Rev x soon. When you pull the motor make sure you also upgrade the STC fitting on the HPOP and go with the newer banjo bolts without the check valves on the fuel lines. So much easier with the motor or cab off

Three things come to mind here...1)yes try the Rev-x. I'm sure it will help some anyway, But, 2) if you dont have the newest flash (ford) then you can get this issue (showing one bad injector) and poor starting with the original Flash. 3) the most costly to repair is the FICM. I would consider this one last. Good luck man
