Question has this issue been addressed

I've seen posts about this but can't remember where. Okay, I changed my own oil and filter this time and now I'm getting white smoke. anyone got any ideas why. When I had the oil changed by a diesel shop this has never happened. Always a clean ex. Was there something else I should have done besides drain oil and change filter?

Does it still blow white smoke after being warmed up? Is the weather where you are colder than usual?

It isn't that cold here. Maybe mid to high 60's in the morning when I first start it. Yes it does stop after the motor warms up. I was just wondering why it would start smoking after I did the oil change.

more than likely the oil change is just a coincidence with cooler temps. the whitte smoke is more than likely unburnt diesel due to the engine being cold

well I found out why the white smoke. I went out to start it this morning and it was dead. Evidently when the batteries are low the gp's don't heat up correctly which leaves unburned fuel, white smoke. Bought two new batteries and got rid of the smoke.
