Help

My truck has been running fine until I noticed something yesterday morning. I went to crank it up in 30 degree weather and it had an hard crank and then belched out white smoke for like 15 secs and then the smoked stopped. After that it ran and crank fine for the rest of the day. Today I go out an try to crank it and it started for 2 secs an then die, so at this point im confused on what the problem is. So its been towed to the local ford dealership,but I was wondering could you all give me alittle insight on the problem?

Load test batteries, check ficm. Is your coolant low? Get a monitor!

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Thanks for the update. Better load test your batteries, bad batteries kill ficms.
