starting problem

Like the title says my truck is starting funny. It starts fine in the morning. And after it sits for a little while it will start fine again. but if i shut it off after driving it and try to start it again it will rev to like 2000 and then die. It does this about 2 to 3 times before it will stay started. Any one know whats up?

might be a vacuum leak, check the vacuum lines and the spark plugs and wires for starters.

There is an elbow into the brake vacuum booster, reconnect it.

does a fuel filter seem plausible?
