Hard start and chugging?

When I went to start my truck this afternoon to go to class it did not want to start and I had to crank it 5 or 6 times before it finally started. (I cycled it twice before I cranked it) It would crank and start for about a second and then die. It did this every time until it finally started. I have new batteries so its not that. Also I didn't have time to let it warm up completely because i was late for class and when I pulled out it was smoking white and chugging but it cleared up when it warmed up. It has never done this before and i'm just kinda wondering what it is. It was about 45 degrees today also so I don't think it was the cold. I also have a full egr delete so it can't be that. Any ideas????

I would start by checking your FICM over rreal good, making sure you have proper voltage. check your fuel pressure as well and change your filters if you havent lately.

search ficm repair on here and it should bring up the proceedure to test and repair the ficm. and remove the cap on the secondary fuel filter housing and see if you have fuel in there.

On top of the engine next to the oil filter. Similar style housings, but the one for the secondary fuel filter is much smaller.



The one on the right in the above picture.
