well my 5.0 has been doing this weird thing every time during a cold start. First i turn the key car turns on, hesitates, then bogs down, and turns off. I turn it back on for the 2nd attempt then there she goes.., starts right up and stays idling good. What can be the problem?

is there any kind of hesitation or lack of power or anything like that or does it run good and strong after that.

yuo need to perform a fuel pressure test and check for leak down, once you have confirmed such we can go from there
