Hard Starting / White Smoke

So I have seen lots of post regarding this but they all seem to be alittle different with different solutions so heres my problem. I have a 94 f250. In the summer the truck started just fine now that its getting cold if I don't keep the truck plugged in it wont start even if I cycle the glow plugs. It blows alot of white smoke while its cold even at idle but seems to clear up and run fine once its warm. The additional problem that it does regardless of weather is when you first start the truck it lopes until you give it some fuel, once you have gave it some fuel it goes away and Idles fine. I have read alot saying this could be an injector problem? Could it just be my glow plugs or the gp relay? Thanks for any help

id start with the GP relay, then do glow plugs, then if it persists after that look into injectors

well is in warm weather the glow plugs dont even do much, over 50 degrees you should not even have to wait for the "wait to start" to cycle. So I dont see how that could efect you in the summer. Injectors maybe, hows your hpop? Does it drain down at night? Not sure if it would do that or not, The ipr might be sticking to, the nut on the ipr isn't much it could be backing off. Mine fell off once, and caused me to stall out in the middle of intersections as I accelerated.

Yeah in the summer it starts up just fine but still has the lope to it until you give it some throtle and then it goes away. It does this almost everytime it is started. the hpop seems to be fine, I am starting by replacing the relay and then plugs. I will update once done and let everyone know if that did the trick.
