only when cold

ok so a few weeks ago some a hole decided he needed my gas cap more than i , just the other morn wife says truck sputters and wants to die when she puts in reverse . yesterday i bought a gas cap and changed both fuel filters they say they are water separating filters but it just looked like a regular element to me . so im hoping this was my issue .ity only did this when cold soon as it warmed up it was fine!!!!STROKEDIS

What is your FICM voltage on a cold start?

sounds like stiction to me. try 5w-40 synthetic oil next change and look into rev-x additive. the synthetic helps but rev-x works really well in almost every case.
