I've noticed if I let my truck set over night the hpop reservoir drains dry. It fires up in the morning so I know the pickup tube and lpop are working. But when cranking it fires up for about 2 secs then dies. No oil pressure for the first cranking or idle. Reset the key and wait for the light to go out again and she starts and runs fine with normal pressure.
Any thoughts why it drains out?

Could be any one of many things. Could be your IPR, leaky HPOP hose or a connection under the valve cover is loose.
I ran into that issue and it ended up being one of the lines in the head was loose and leaking.
Do you see any oil in the valley of the engine?
