No power when cold

My truck has been acting up for quite some time, had it in the shop a couple months back for an injector issue, but its back to doing the same thing, truck starts fine in the morning, cranks right up, but has no power until at running temp, I can literally push the pedal to the floor and its just bogging down, checked the volts on my ficm and they seem to be alright, need help on what to check next, Thanks.

Does it idle smooth when cold? Sounds like injector issue. Just drove one just like that this morning. Putting injectors in it today.

Spend the $80 and order some Rev X and put it in with a new oil change. It's a stiction issue, I had the same exact thing. Thought it was transmission going out, then I thought it was an injector going out.... tried the Rev X and it cured it. I know I know, I was skeptical to. Your truck will start easier and run better prior to achieving normal operating temp.

My truck would studder and buck, seriously thought the trans was bad. Then thought I'd check injectors and FICM. Luckily I tried the Rev X first and it worked. First treatment is two bottles. Usually around 75-80 bucks delivered, add that to your next oil change (works better with syn or at least a syn blnd).

Google Rev X and read up about it. I've heard if you run one of the better synthetic oils it has allot of the same detergents that Rev X has.

I'd recommend it, and I don't have any ties to it other than it worked for me and was cheaper than having a diagnostics run on your truck at the dealership much less injectors or a trans.

Good luck to you! and GEAUX TIGERS!
