My truck was bucking real bad and low on power when I first started it and it would do it until the engine got all the way up to operating temp and then it would go away. Used some rev-x and next morning with no block heater and 28 degrees, it was a little better on initial startup, but within about a minute and the temp guage just coming off of the "C" everything cleared up. I would say it cleared up about 85% of my problem. It went from unbearable to acceptable. When I use the block heater, it cranks uup and runs perfect whereas it used to buck and jerk until it got to operating temp. 2 bottles.

IF your problem is injector stiction Rev-X will clear it up, period. If it is a hard failure it will not. Anyway the Rev-X is good for your truck anyway so drop a couple of bottles in and see what happens. It's cheaper than replacing an injector.

It works, I documented it on Youtube. Too bad it's so expensive, and with the warmer months coming here in California, I probably won't buy anymore because I want to try 5w40 next winter.
