White Smoke

Hey everyone! Over the past couple days my '95 F250 has been subtly blowing white smoke at start and whenever I drive it and get the turbo to spool it smokes white and black lightly. I haven't changed the oil in about 3,800 miles, could this be the problem? I was thinking about fuel filter as well, which I could change. a buddy of mine said it could possibly be water in the fuel, which I don't know how that could have happened. Any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

low fuel pressure can cause white /greyish smoke , if it is time for s service , do that first , oil change and fuel filter and see if that makes a difference first

Ya I am probably going to change the filters tonight and I'll see if that helps. Thank you! How would I go about fixing the fuel pressure if it's too low/high?

well if its the fuel filter clogged ,then changing it may make it better , if not you may have a fuel pump getting weak

I forgot to mention, after my truck has been warmed up for a while, the white smoke will go away and there will be no signs of it.
