when the air temp gets below 60 it is hard to start if i crank and crank on it for five mins or so it will start .... after it starts the first time that day it will start just fine the rest of the day or if its 70 degrees or hotter outside it starts just fine its runs good no other problems only cold starting

If the engine compression, fuel pressure, and the electrical/ignition system while cranking are in good shape, the hard starting could be an air temp sensor reading incorrectly or the injectors worn or restricted not allowing enough fuel for a cold start. Have a trained tech check over the engine systems throroughly and compare the air and engine temp sensors to the ambient temperature. If everything checks out OK, then send the injectors out for rebuilding.
