Smoke out of exhaust while cranking?

More then likely a high pressure oil issue. A high pressure oil leak can cause a no start, depending on how bad the leak is. The high pressure oil system can't overcome the leak during normal cranking but when you use a "starting assist" of some sort it is enough to overcome the leak. If you're not familiar with these engines it can be kind of tricky to diagnose. I'd try checking codes first and see if you have any ICP related codes.

Does the oil pressure gauge move up when cranking?

Doesn't a HPOP leak usually affect warm starts?

Yes, they normally start out like that and get progressively worse but you can have a leak develop quick that will cause the same symptoms. Based off the symptoms it's my first guess but really need more info on it.

i havent paid any attention to the oil gauge while cranking. the only thing it ever done was it was taking a little longer to start than it usually did til finally it didnt start.

See what the oil gauge does. Just curious but still sounds like a high pressure oil issue. So this has been going on for awhile? Is it worse when it's warmed up? If so I'd guess at standpipe/dummy plug or STC fitting issues. Those are the most common failures usually.
