2002 Starting problem

After sitting overnight truck will turn over fine but not start. I drain the water/ fuel valve for a few seconds and it will fire and start the rest of the day fine. Anyone seen this before?

Are you leaving the Key ON when you open the hood to drain?

Seriously, that just doesn't make sense, I can't see what it is doing (draining a little fuel) EXCEPT if you left the key on and the GPs were on longer...

Next time, open the hood, put your finger on the yellow lever, but Don't Turn It (see if it starts)

I do not have the key on and some fuel does drain but I don't have to drain all of it. I will try your Idea in the morning. THX
