I'm having a hard time with my truck. The truck will start perfectly the first time in the morning. But when I turn the truck off and back on it will crank over but won't start. If I keep trying to crank it and play with the gas pedal it will start and have no more problems for the day until the following day. I've replaced the crankshaft position sensor twice, spark plugs, Auto Shut Down (ASD) Relays, and camshaft sensor. I've checked the fuel presure, and battery. I've also put dry gas in the fuel. There is no codes popping up. Need help!

    Why don't you try flooring the gas pedal when it's hard to start. This acts to clear the cylinders because fuel is shut off during crank. If it does start right up using this method then you might have something like a leaky injector or faulty coolant temp sensor going on here.

    I floor the gas pedal while I'm cranking. It's the only way it will start a second time but after that the truck runs great for the rest of the day.

    Let me think about this a bit. It's hard when you aren't there to test things....a technician might have to capture streaming data and freeze frame during the time the problem is actually occurring.
