Leaking Fuel Injector?

as some of u may know i have been having problems with starting my truck after letting it sit over night.

i was thinking could it possibly be a leaking fuel injector? When I try to start it for the first time in the morning it shakes and kinda gargles, and will stall out. If i start it and press on the accelerator it starts the gargling thing then starts making a popping noise and shakes like a wet dog, then it's running fine.

Are those symptoms of the fuel injector(s) leaking?

A leaking injector will be most noticeable after the engine has sat for about 10-20 minutes.
Are you seeing a whitish smoke from the exhaust when starting in the morning ?

With the truck being off, I don't see how there would be enough fuel to actually flood the engine while there is no fuel pump running...I could very well be wrong though, just my two cents

thats usually when it leaks, when the truck is off and floods it, otherwise when its running it just burns off.

does anyone else have experience with this?
