lil advice on REV-x

so just re soldered my FICM yesterday didn't make any difference everything is fine voltage wise. when i do start my truck she runs rough for a few seconds then idles fine she is blowing a little bit of white smoke for the first minute or two then none. when i do take it for a drive it hesitates a lil when in higher RPM until its warmed up and then she 100%. So I'm thinking its the injector stiction and i want to try the REV-x stuff anybody have any advise on this!!!

Get the rev-x bottle very warm before you put it in. The rev-x fluid is thick. This will help you get all of the fluid out of the bottle.

Are they brand new? Or built from your cores? If brand new youre FICM is more likely the issue
