I took the truck to the dealer. They told me the cam and lifters are probably the cause of my problem. Can someone explain to me why that would cause the problem on cold starts and then run great later?

$3800 is the estimate. How difficult is it to replace the cam and lifters if they are needed? Something I should tackle myself? I am pretty mechanical but don't have any special tools.
