FICM issue or injector?
I have an issue that slowly has gotten worse.
When I start the truck in the morning at around 3-5C* outside, it has a rough start and billows out grey/white smoke for about 5 minutes until it gets a little warm. The smoke smells like diesel, not coolant and I have never lost or puked out coolant from the bottle. If its a bit colder out, and I try to drive it soon after starting, it will sometimes stall.
I checked the codes with my SCT and I get p0272, an injector code from what I read but I don't seem to have injector symptoms?
This is the only issue I am having. It does not smoke while driving, it has a steady idle, and it starts great when warm.
I was thinking glow plugs as I havent tested them yet and the truck has 300,000kms but it smokes for a while after starting. Truck is all stock aside from a Looney Tune.
Just want an idea on where to look before I start testing components.
