Rev-X information

I have a 2004 6.0 that starts quite rough and well I was considering adding Rev-x. The problem is I have no clue how often each "treatment" will last because it is quite expensive and I don't want to add this all the time.

If you can help me out with this please do, also what particular product should I get?

Thank you.

Just add two bottles to your oil when you do an oil change and leave it in there for the duration, some add one bottle every oil change after that. Are you sure it's the injectors and not the FICM?

t5 with archoil made a big diffrence in my cold morning starting issues. Dont know if Ill need to go with the Rev X but if this stuff "wears off/out" Ill give that a try. Pouring a bottle of snake oil in the truck is a lot more fun than spending the weekend cramped up pulling injectors...

I just purchased a Scangauge II and I have been monitoring my FICM voltage. It's good. Lowest i saw was 47.5 volts. So it must be the injector stiction. Although I just replaced all 8 of them.

Yes I'm sure. My FICM is fine, I've been monitoring it on my Scangauge II. Lowest voltage it's gotten to was 47.5

The Rev-X will work great two bottles and my cold start problems 100% better. I had tried Hot Secret before because it was cheaper but had no luck with it.
