White Smoke in the morning.

Ok i have a 03 f250 6.0. It is starting to get cold here in Tennessee and i have noticed for about the last 2 weeks that my truck is blowing a little white smoke in the morning when i first start it. now for the last 3 day it blows a lot of smoke for about the first 100 yard up the road and then stops. is this normal or what. ever thing is all stock on the truck it has been about 9000 miles since i have changed the fuel filter and my oil is coming up on needing a change. i did notice a little loss in power this morning on the inter state. i did notice on my last trip that the engain oil temp was running about 18 to 20digrees hotter that the engain coolent. dont know if that has any thing to do with it or not. and there are no codes on the truck and i replaced the EGR valve about 3000miles ago.

please help.

I have an 05, and if its below 40 degrees outside it barfs white, sometimes black smoke for a good 10 minutes after start up. Once its warmed up everything is fine. My assumption is that one of the glow plugs is dead so that cylinder is getting loaded up with fuel until it is warm enough to combust it all.

How did you know which ones? Would a buzz test detect clogged injectors?
