Default 01 5.2 issues

hello, i am new to the forum and would greatly appreciate any help. i have an 01 ram 4x4 with 5.2. when started cold it starts right up and idles then starts to overload with gas and almost stall ,it will run for about 3-5 min and then start running great. it will usually run fine all day unless it cools down and it does this everytime. i purchased the truck from a friend and this is what he had done to it and replaced on it: new tps sensor, idle sensor, map sensor, o2 sensors, new catylic converter, new fuel pump , muffler and full tune up. does not pull code most of the time but did pull evap code before. any help would be awsome

Check all hoses to purge silonoid its on right fender behind horns. Look for cracks mainly in big hose where bend is formed. Also make sure iac motor is working. Its at back of throtle body plunger should move freely. Also check air temp sensor. Its behind alt in intake manifold. These can cause over load and poor perfomance when cold.
