There are oil plugs in the front and rear of the heads where the hpop oil runs for the injectors. There are o-rings on the plugs that can blow out and cause the problem. You will have to remove the accesory mount to see it on the driver side. If its that plug then it wont build enough hp oil to start the truck.

I had a feeling it was one of those seals i hear you guys talk about sometimes. Is the accesory mount just a mount bolted to the block for an extra belt driven utility or something?

So i found out what happened. Heres the story: i took off my ac compressor to check the front driver side oil rail end plug. Checked it and no oil came out of the plug. I looked allot closer and discovered it was my oil cooler that was leaking. Did some research and discovered that the seals leak when it was cold but as the truck warmed they expanded and sealed up, atsacly matching my symtoms. As for not starting sometimes, ive traced that to the batteries. Turned out listening to a subwoofer real loud with the car off drains the batteries pretty good haha
