Intermittent miss at Idle-1200 RPM

Hey guys I am getting an intermittent miss at idle, and low rpm. Like I said it doesn't happen all the time, and seems to smooth out with RPM. Not DTC's logged. All signs point towards an injector, or harness. Engine was apart 2000 miles ago for STUD. Stock injectors 120k miles. Any input?

It's a conjunctive form of static friction. For our injectors, it is simply pistons which stick in their bore, to a level which retards the initial movement. As said, static friction and dirt and debris that gets picked up can cause it. Recommed you use Rev-X and it should calm her back down. What kind of oil are you running?

Search Stiction Revisited in the Perf section Stiction Revisited - including plunger stiction, or take the long read below in my sig. Rev X may do it for you in the long or short term, or not.

Thanks ya'll and I have only owned the truck for a month. But it has Rotella in it now. But it was always serviced at Ford so the majority of its life it was Motorcraft.

Hey guys I have been running Rev X for about 300 miles, its not helping the issue. I wanted to add that this only occurs after the truck has been running for 30 plus minutes and is fully hot. It does not do this and it runs and starts well when it is cold. It has prolonged starts when it is hot intermittently, and a miss.
