When truck is cold I have to flood the engine to get it to start then I have to keep the rpm around 3 till it warms up then it runs great I can turn it off and it will start right back up but if it gets cold you have to restart the process. I have replaced the Idle Air Control Valve and the Throttle Position Sensor. I cleaned the throttle body. And it still does the same thing. What else could it be.

Do you
have the same problem?

Are there any codes?

How do flood the motor?

Coolant sensor controls cold operations. Look at the connector for corrosion.
