At my wits end with this truck, love it but about to burn it

Truck cold, temp outside above zero just a bit. When I turned truck over white smoke coming from under the hood, had hood open so could see it was coming from turbo area, cranked for 15 seconds nothing. Went and looked couldn't see any leaks. Cranked it again and it fired, huge puff of white smoke then idled with white smoke for about 5 seconds then clear idles and runs fine. Doesnt blow white while driving, No codes, Any ideas? I'm at my wits end with thing been so frustrated lately.

Thanks for any help guys

This isn't even going into my electrical or drivetrain problems.

Are your glow plugs working? Can you plug it in at night to see if it starts better?
Smoke under the hood....up pipes...maybe? Just throwing it out.

Are you running any anti-gel stuff in the fuel? Just asking.

I will plug it in, fill it with fuel tonight and run whatever additive napa has. I'll also check the up pipes as I did just do an egr delete they were flanges up nicely though and if they leak smoke like that when I crank it wouldn't my turbo not run at all?

Sounds like a glow plug issue to me too. You can check them for a draw on each bank, and if you aren't smoking after initial start it's not a coolant issue.
I would keep the matches in your pocket for now, may be as simple as a fuse or relay. lol

Sounds like it might be two issues. The white smoking means that it's putting fuel to the cylinders, just not firing it. That could be glow plugs or it just not spinning fast enough with the cold weather. I'd try plugging it in and see how much that helps out, then double check glow plugs and load test the batteries. Does it seem like it's cranking good?

Now you shouldn't be seeing it smoking under the hood though, which makes me think you have an exhaust leak as well. Might not be big enough to notice when it's running but either way, you shouldn't be seeing smoke come out under the hood.

28 psi of boost I don't think it could be an exhaust leak, can intake manifold push out smoke?

Possibly, but if you were leaking on the intake side you should have low boost as well. Somewhere something is leaking, otherwise you wouldn't see smoke coming out from under the hood.

You talking a lot of smoke under hood? I see the white smoke after crankin away for 15 sec+ w/ no start then firing after fuel is laying there, I think I would leave it unplugged and do it again in morning with hood open this time to see where smoke is coming from.
Could it have blown back to front of the truck ?
