Truck wont start in the morning or if it sitts for a couple of hours.I have 60 psi fuel pressure and i have spark. When i try to start it just keeps turning over. If I use starting fluid it starts right up and keeps running fine.If I shut if off and try to restart no problems. Its only in the morning or when it sits for several hours like after work it wont start without starting fluid.
