hard starting

so the ex decided that she doesnt like to start. i let the glow pugs warm like i do every morning that i start her for the first time and she just didnt want to start then it surged for about 5 seconds before it ran normal. i am thinking its time for a IDM. i ordered a fuel filter that will be here tomorrow. i was told the truck was serviced from the dealer before i bought it but im doing the filter anyway. just making sure i am on the right path before i buy an IDM and not need it. thanks.
