Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
Did you check anything yet?
do you have the security indicator on or flashing?
do you have a check engine light on?
did you check for any fault codes?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I've Checked several things and changed different things ,nothing is flashing, no check engine light, and no codes appear on the dash.

Did you check for spark (when the engine is not starting)?
did you check the spark plugs?
did you check for fuel pressure?
did you check for injector pulse?
and when the engine is running do you have other symptoms? (hesitation, poor performance etc..)
PS: the most common fault on these causing hard starts, would be dirty injector nozzles, and cleaning the injector will cure the issue, but we need to diagnose correctly, to pinpoint the culprit to avoid repairing or replacing parts at random.

I did not check the Spark or the wires, did not check fuel pressure or the injector pulse. It runs just fine when it's running it does not hesitate!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This has been happening since the truck was 1 year old!

Hello again,
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
Since this does not happen when it runs, it should not be the sparks or fuel pressure.
In this case, i would lean more towards sticky injectors (need cleaning), but first, did you check with your dealer for a software update? as there have been software updates on the engine control system.
