Angry Dies after start

hey guys, I have a problem with the d. Just after I start the truck it immediately dies. So I throw her back in park and she fires up w/o hesitation and continues to run fine. I know this can't be good on my starter, any suggestions??

Pedro, you can use my skills

Yo Ben. I have that happen when I've been running the truck hard for extended periods. Is this a visiting gremlin or permanent?

does it gurgle at all...? if so could be bad o2 censors which would cause it to idle too low, and then die
remember two things...
