What oil are you running ?

If it's not 5W/40 your shooting yourself in the foot. Try that first if you still have a stiction problem then get the RevX.

I've been using the same oil since I bought the truck brand new. 15w-40 motorcraft. I get free oil changes at the dealership and the same service tech has changed my oil most of the time. I know you guys talk big about other oils and synthetics, but I'm not going to change plus my oil changes are FREE. I usually put in some rev x in the fall to help with cold starts. I have a 5 hour drive coming up next weekend and thought it wouldn't hurt to run some more rev x. My 2006 has 118,000miles on her and I have never had a injector problem

If you watch ebay you may get a slightly lower price. Last time ordered some the best price I found was Little Power Shop (something like that).

5W/40 will most likely run better then the RevX, talk with Ford and have them switch viscosity. A lot of the dealers are using it now. The reason it was specd for 15W/40 was because 5W/40 was not yet made. My truck starts up like the day it was brand new with 5W/40 and same injectors with 0 stiction issues 80,000 miles, runs like a finely tuned Swiss Watch.
There is a huge difference between synthetic and natural oil. It has better lubrication qualities doesn't break down as fast or become acidic like dino oil does. It's better and engines last longer when used. The choice is obviously yours to make but the difference is as clear as night and day....................
