Not sure if similar to my situation but have you guys looked at the throttle body? Common they crud up with oil around the blade. Mine would run fine when it did run but starting was a craps shoot. Would turn over and either immediately die, run rough then sputter out, or run very loopy until you began driving. If your friends runs fine once it's running, highly doubt anything internal is fouled, then again who knows. I was surprised how much garbage accumulated around the throttle body blade. Seems what happens is when you start the car and the blade is partially open, the buildup inhibits air flow and starting/idling the truck normally is a real issue.

I removed the TB completely and cleaned it, refit problem completely gone.
