rough idle on start up

my 95 psd with 244k on it just started taking twice as long to start, and when it starts, it idles really rough for about 2 seconds then clears up. doesnt have as much power, and smoke is way more gray than usual. any ideas?

loss of compresssion is my first thought. you could have sticky injectors though.

injectors are stage 1's that have around 12k miles on them. what would cause loss of compression?

godo point. check your oil level too. i know when these psd's get low they can do that. i think it has to do with the LPOP's ability to feed the HPOP and where the pickup tube or something...
