Injector/Smoke Problems

Could faulty injectors cause excess white smoke on a cold start up. Mine I am pretty sure are original, and thats alot of miles. Or is the motor just getting tired and time for an overhaul.
PS I installed a whole new glowplug system 2 months ago. ( Glowplugs, wires, relay)

Thanks

Have you ever changed out the injector o-rings? I agree with Matt that it might just be them.

the only time i get a growling noise is when im in one of the lower gears and not enough rpm.maybe your clutch,driveshaft.pinion angle change with heavy load?or even motor mounts.just a couple of things to check

A new set of o-rings isn't too much money and the work isn't tough at all, just in case it gets any worse.
