Q: My 1997 Chevrolet 1500 1/2 ton Pickup has problems starting when cold. on 1997 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup

My 1997 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup does not want to start with the cold weather moving in. I have to put a little gas in the carb to get it started every morning and everytime the car has ben shut off longer then 3o min. I do find that if I drive for about 1 hour or more, the car will start the rest of the day. The truck runs and idels great besides the startup. A friend said it might have something to do with the Mass Air. Any ideas you might have about my truck would be a great help to me.
I'm not sure what size motor I have. Its eather 5.OL V8 or 7.5L V8
