Default wierd starting issue

Hello guys, i have a 97 dodge ram 1500 with the 5.2 L in it and here the past few weeks it doesnt seem to want to start unless i give it gas.This only happens with the first start of the day,once i pump it and it starts it doesnt run funny or give me any issue with starting the rest of the day, it starts right up. Anyone have any ideas?

AIC, might be dirty or malfuncining its at back of throttle body with 2 torqx screws remove it and have someone turn key on see if plunger slides freely or has carbon buld up.

Are you trying to say that when you start it first thing in the morning (or day) that it seems to fire on 2/3 cylinders and then the rest join in one at a time?
