absolutely lol, i bought my truck at 2016k miles with conventional 15w40 in it and it was extremely hard to start cold even at 40F ambient. i kinda think that if the PO would have used synthetic 5w40 that the injectors would be in better shape right now. the good thing is that as soon as i switched to a full synth 5w40, cold starts became much much easier and the 'stiction' symptoms aren't as severe. at least the injectors aren't getting worse... yet. . i think the treatments like archoil and revx that i've used probably helped a bit too.

Except 5W-40 doesn't hold icp as well.
15W-40 is fine, just stick with a good synthetic.

I run full synthetic 15/40. I buy a 5 gal pail for $70 shipped to my house. @79jasper runs the more better stuff than I and it's about $120 for a pail. Plus it's red.
