Any good auto mechanics on here?

I need possible causes of a vehicle problem.

If it involves a computer forget it, I'll pull the engine on my hot rod and completely rebuild it but I won't even change the oil on my computer controlled truck.

1996 Chey 3500 dually with 454 Vortec.

In the morning it cranks right up. Once the engine is warm, the starter turns over for about 10 seconds before cranking. Engine runs really rough for a couple seconds and dies. Turn the key back on and the motor starts almost instantly and runs smooth until I turn the key off.

This continues for the entire day even though it may be turned off for several hours between cranking. Once it sits over night, starts right up and the process begins again for the rest of the day.
