2003 6.0L runs rough on start up

Hey guys, recently I bought a 2003 6.0L. I'm having a problem with it. On start up it runs super rough and clears out and runs better when it's at operating temp. When I plug it in over night it starts easier but still runs rough. I can tell its some sort of fueling issue. I tested the ficm it measured 48v as it should from what I've read. Could a plugged fuel filter cause this? or is it and injector related issue. heard rev-x may help. where can i get it? Could someone help me out? I'm trying to nip this now before it becomes something more. Thanks!

It's injectors, it runs better when warmed up because your engine oil gets hot. Cheap fix would be revx.

Okay that's what I was thinking. Once it's warm it's still slighltly hesitant. Where can I get revx?

What oil are running? I changed over to T5 10-30 and it made a huge diffrence getting rid of the 15-40. And after a health dose of Archoil she's all better.

Ya take care of those injectors Archoil I was told by kinnisoj is holy water. I have 2 injectors that might be sticking. I have similar issues that you do get those injectors clean and lubed up with additives
