Default 5.2 Hard sputtering start and a bit sluggish on the move.

Hi 5.2 engine doesnt really seem like its getting fuel when I start it from cold... spits and sputters for a couple min, will die if you push the throttle and then just comes alive and is fine... a bit sluggish when foot goes to the mat though.
Any thoughts?

Check and clean the crank position sensor on the back of the passenger's side of the engine where it meets the bell housing and see it that helps.

I'll second that on the crank sensor, also think about changing the injectors with ford yellow tops from bone yard...I got a set for $40.00 smoothed out engine. And make sure your truck isn't up shifting to quickly from 1-2 trans kick down cable adjustment.

Start with a can of Seafoam to clean out your current injectors. Assess for improvement. Again, I'm looking at the intake plenum gasket.
