Smokes blue and rough idle on first start of the day, if sits longer than ten minutes idling will start to smoke blue, sounds like it has a
miss in the tail pipe

Injectors checked out good. But had a code for 6 and 8 glow plugs. Changed those and now seems to be doing ok. Thanks for all the advice.
