question

so i just became the proud owner of a 96psd. couple things i have questions on.
1. when i start the truck up it spits out a white cloud but then followed by a bluish tint smoke. after it warms up it goes away. its got a hint of burnt oil smell to the exhaust.
even with these things the truck fires right up after the wait to start cycle, and drives fairly nicely. any help on these things would be helpful.

Have you checked the threads on cold weather start up, is it going away quickly or just that puff and done rite after it cranks?

It looks like it goes away, but I don't think it is' . Now also the temp gauge is not heating up unless I am in overdrive and have it at 3k rpm. Then it moves. Could not heating up be the cause?

Would a leaky injector do the part as well?

Update: so last night I was dinking around, checking some things on the truck, I unplugged my icp sensor and the smoke issue died down and the power is back. Next thing is the ipr, was missing the nut on the back of it so I luckily had a old ipr in my tool box an used the nut. Will keep posting updates.

Also check your GPR strength. The Glow Plug Relay can fizzle out and not just brake. With a meter, ground on side of the meter and touch both big lugs on the glow plug relay. Are they the same voltage?
