anyone explain these symptoms?

recently it takes long cranks to start my truck, no out of the ordinary smoke on start up, let it idle for 15min or so plus, itll die but it starts right back up, sometimes it just has one hiccup while just driving randomly, throw it in 2nd gear at 40 and romp on it good itll blow a cloud of blue smoke once or twice, then its black

Of course you have changed the CPS? How is the oil level/condition?

i havent changed the cps, the dieing and hiccups are random, never occur all the time. oil is full is just about due for a change

I would try the CPS. It common for them to cause random dying. If it doesnt fix it atleast you will have a spare to throw in your glovebox incase it ever goes out while driving.

injector 0-rings is my first thought when you say that. does your starter spin fast?

check the color of the fuel in the filter, if it's dark, I would think injector O-rings
