My truck is having trouble starting on cold mornings. I have to hold the accel. Down to keep it going and then it dies when I start to back up. Everything is fine once I get going down the road. Any help or information on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds to me that you need a new coolant temp sensor.

Also clean out your throttle body.
