Replace the mass air flow sensor. it has the intake air temp. sensor built in it .i just went thru the same thing with mine.also before you buy that maf sensor, unplug it and then start your truck,,,should run better. if it does not run any better, then you need to try something else.

I have a 2002 chev silverado 2500HD duramax 4x4, The truck starts only when given a shot of quick start in the airbox. After it runs great you can shut it off then re start it fine. It will not start...

You need new glow plugs. Im guessing you live somewhere kind of cold maybe. It starts just fine after running because the motor is already warm. Quick start will work.....or at least it did for me until I used one mornig and went to crank and BOOM. It blew my air filter case to pieces and caught the filter on fire. Starting fluid is not meant for diesel motors. If you cant afford new glow plugs what worked for me is turn on the key all the way but dont crank wait 10 sec then repeat a few times and it should crank unless its really cold out or the plugs are really bad. Trust me thats what it is. I replaced mine and now It cranks right up even when its super cold.

I have a 1999 Chevy LS 2500, when I start it cold it struggles to accelerate and occasionally something knocks when cold and losses power. Even if I let it warm up the problem persists for about a mile....

Number of problems it could be.
1. Clogged or bad fuel pump/filter
2. Plugged catalytic converters
3. Tune up, air filter, plugs & wires
4. Vacuum leaks
5. Bad cam / crank sensor
Sounds like it's starving for either fuel or air.

Choke isn't suppose to turn off until engine is warm. When was last healthy tune up? Replace plugs, wires, ALL filters especially FUEL filter and run a good fuel system cleaner through it w/next tank full of fuel

Ford F250 turbo diesel cut out and died as left house this morning, cold morning. Will not start, not even a cough. Have new fuel filters, need location of the filters, anything else I should check?

if you have the 6.0 then the filters are located on top on the motor right beside your oil filter and under the drivers side on the fuel pump, check to see if you have diesel in your bowl where the fuel filter is, no diesel in there your fuel pump might be dead, check fuses to fuel pump and check relay on the passengers side kicker panel, check your owners manual

When cold will not stay running

Faulty coolant temperature sensor or air sensor, check the ground cables if anything replace them.
