STUCK AT WORK HELP!!!

Truck won't fire, shows rpms on tach, it blow white smoke so it's getting fuel, I can hear the gpr kick on, idk wtf it could be?!! The wait to start light flashes when it's trying to turn over I unplugged my chip thinkin it was the problem then I noticed the flashing wts light, the dipstick says add, it might be a quart or 2 low, I don't have oil with me though

The wts light has never flashed at me before, could it be a fuse?
It tries to fire but won't, it turns over just fine

Check engine light and flashing wait to start light

One had relays not pushed down

"I have a 97 F250 and I think I know what it is. The resevouir where your fuel/water seperator installs is also a prewarmer for the fuel. If it only does this on cool days and only after it has thoroughly cooled down I would say this is it. Try and plug it in to electric and see if it start ok the next morning if it does this is it.
My truck started that last year and the mileage is similar. I held off replacing it since its over 200.00 plus labor."

Do the obs trucks have a voltage gauge? Just because the batteries are new doesn't mean they are good.
Never rule something out just because its new

Very true but they've been in for a month and it doesn't crank over slowly

Try adding oil 3-4 quarts will cause a hard start.
If it is cranking to slow it won't activate the CPS.

According to one article I read.

Also, the #2 relay keeps popping up in threads...
