A little more explanation would be useful. I can't imagine that you are
cranking the truck for 20 minutes, so what do you mean when you say it takes
20 minutes to get started? Does it start and die repeatedly? If so, I'd
suspect a sticky IAC (Idle Air Control). The part is less than $100 and is
easy to replace. Usually cleaning it will correct the problem. It is a 1.5
inch diameter x 4 inch long chrome plated cylindrical objected bolted to the
intake manifol via a flange with two screws. It has an elecrtical connector
on one end.
