Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1st start in morning truck runs very rough. Can't drive until it warms up at least for 10
minutes. If you press accelarator valve tap and truck shutters. Then all of a sudden it
starts to purr and then runs great the rest of the day. ????? Just had complete tune up.
