Truck starts, then dies. Then starts just fine

My dad has a '95 Powerstroke that's knocking on the 300,000 mile door. Lately when he goes to start it, it'll start and run for 5 to 10 seconds and die. Wait a little bit, crank it again and she'll start and stay running. Any ideas on where I should start looking?

is it cold when it dies? or does it not matter?

Only after it's been sitting for a couple days. Once it starts, it'll start back up without a problem.

just trying to get this right. the truck has been sitting not plugged in,you start the truck it runs for 10 secs and then it dies. you start it right back up and it runs fine all day. until you let it sit hour a couple days? sounds like it has a problem building fuel or oil pressure. do you have any numbers like fuel pressure, oil pressure, icp?

Yeah, I think that kinda sums it up. Unfortunately, the only gauge he has is a pyrometer. Would it do any good to plug my Edge Insight into it?

i have no idea, i know nothing about edge products. you can get icp with a high quality scan tool. fuel pressure off the schrader valve or the driver's side of the fuel bowl and high pressure oil pressure off the rails.

Does it read real-time PCM data?

Yes, it does. On my 6.0, it read at least 15 or more different things, trans temp, boost, EOT, ECT, ICP voltage, speed, engine load, etc. I just didn't know what it would be able to read from a 7.3
