I would try replacing the fuel filter it could be clogged and then when you prime it with starter fluid it gives it enough pull to allow fuel to flow. when engine is cold fuel can gel so when the vehicle is warm it allows fuel to flow easy allowing it to start. that is just one of many things it could be but if you haven't changed filter in a while it cant hurt to change it and who knows that might be the problem if not you have a nice clean fuel filter anyway. If you have the diesel it pays to keep the fuel filter clean because diesel fuel will gel quicker than gasoline .

Truck will not start in the mornings and will run down the battery trying.

The fuel injector underneath the intake manifold have a common leakage problem causing the engine to flood and not allowing the engine to start. Check the fuel pressure upon cranking in the morning. That is a good place to start.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery.

Coldstart/1997gmcjimmy.won't start in morning without starting fluid.once started,will start all day.

Check the fuel pressure in the morning when you are trying to get it started. Do not use the starting fluid when doing this. With the key turned to the run position the pressure should go up to 55 - 60 psi and stay there. If it dosent go up or it drops quickly the fuel pump is bad.

'98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only

When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.
