There could be a number of reasons why the Check Engine light is on. US vehicles manufactured prior to 1996 feature a diagnostic module in the engine compartment by the main fuse box. Often a label is affixed to the underside of the hood explaining which terminals to access.
Using a simple metal tool (even a paper clip) to connect the two terminals will cause the check engine light to flash in the dash when the key is in the accessory position. By reading the number of flashes one can determine which code was set. Manufacturer’s code guides, available online, will reveal which system(s) tripped the check engine light.
It could be a vacuum leak, dirty fuel injectors, blown head gasket, etc. The longer you drive with the Check Engine light on the more damage you are doing to the vehicle. So if you are a DIY type of a person then you can check the code on the ECU or bring it to a dealer near you.

DIFFICULT STARTING CAR IN COLD.WOULD BE A THERMO - TIME SWITCH.THE THERMO TIME SWITCH CONTROLS THE AMOUNT OF TIME THE COLD START VALVE IS HELD OPEN BY MEASURING THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE AND UTILIZING A TIME FUNCTION TO PREVENT AN OVER RICH CONDITION.THIS COULD BE MOST OF YOUR PROBLEM.BUT SCAN IT TO SEE WHAT PCM CODE YOU ARE GETTING.

Have it scanned to see what the code history is , the code that comes up will tell you what is wrong, (as far as the computer is concerned)

Has this problem come shortly after refuelling? Do you live in a humid climate? 9 times out of 10 this is a result of the gas cap. Failing that, can you get your hands on a OBD 2 tool or go to your dealer and have them scan the truck. The Check Engine Light throws a code and the OBD2 tool reads that code. The code points to the problem.
