hey guys, i was having cold start problems with my truck till she got to 120-130 she seem to skip, i got two bottles of RevX from them for $60, did a full oil change(which always hurts haha). Drove her around got into her good on the highway and around town the last couple days, Got in her to day and wow what a different truck, this does work for a sticking injector, truck evan runs smoother, like when i bought her, if this need to be move please do, but i do believe this does work like the other guys say i does

Glad to hear it's working for you! Chalk up another happy Rev-X Customer.

I'm a HUGE skeptic of "snake-oil" remedies, but Rev-X has shown time and again to help resolve many of the cold start/drivability issues commonly seen on the 6.0L trucks. Even 7.3L trucks notice some benefit to running Rev-X. We've been so impressed with it that we recommend it to all our 6.0L customers.

Take care.

I've done the same with mine with great results as well.

It got me thinking... if it works, it means you have a "bad injector?" right? I mean why is it some are "sticky" and others are not?

Replace the injector. I had two start missing when warm and replaced them. I'd rather fix the problem then add over $60 worth of additives every oil change.

Yeah, but the additive in three oil changes pays for an injector. With 95k on my '03, I figured it could use a new injector or two.

Where are you getting injectors for 120 bucks?

Rev-X, to my knowledge, has not been used in the PSD for just over a year. Many who have used it in trucks with over 100,000 miles have seen improvements in the cold start issue. With the weather being warmer many will not experience problems as they would when the weather is down into the 30's. It will be interesting to hear from those who have posted results to also post if they have to replace injectors later. With Rev-X fixing these problems for some, they may never have a need to come back to any forum because they are not having problems. Is that not what forums are for? If you have a problem you post the problem and hope someone has a solution.

If you still have warranty you can go to the dealer, he runs diagnostics, tells you need 3 new injectors, they install them and you either get it for free or the $100. If you have no warranty, you pay the dealer for the diagnostics, "it will not be free maybe $100", they tell you that you need 3 injectors, "have no idea what that cost will be", You don't have the money now so you drive off and live with the cold start problems.

If you are still having problems after the motor has warmed up, you could have a real injector problem. Or you can spend the under $70 for 2 bottles of Rev-X and see if it helps.

How much is 3 hours of your time changing it out and how ever much time finding which one is bad worth to you? I'll take 45000+ miles without diggin into my engine for 210.00 anyday.
Well, I do 5k oil changes, you do 15k. Finding the bad injector took about 5 minutes with my AE. Changing the injector wasn't fun, but it gave me an excuse to buy a new digital torque wrench :)

I only change mine at 15k on the rev-x. Oil analysis shows it fine even at 15K. I change at 5k without it. I like the way you think about buying tools though. LOL

Two bottles is about $70, times 3 is $210.
cartmanea Do you only read your post and those that have responded to your's?

I would think that Innovative Diesel's Post would have explained it and everyone could respect his level of expertise. Rev-X is started with 2 bottles....less than $70. On each oil change afterward you only add 1 bottle.....less than $35. Many have found it to work just as good with non-synthetic oil which would save the $35 on each oil change. Many running synthetic have not been having problems but some have in very cold weather have. I had just bought 8 gallons of Vavoline 5-40W blue synthetic before I did the Rev-X. I am planning on using the Synthetic durning the summer months then when colder weather hits I will use the Vavoline 15-40 non-synthetic with Rev-X.
