So I went to start the truck today, got the batterys tested and jumped yesterday and it turned over fine today. but would not fire.. when cranking ALOT of white smoke was coming out of my stack with no fireing just cranking. so i popped the hood, drained the fuel bowl. cycles the key to fill it back up cranked it and she started right up. with minimal smoke. any idea what was causing all the white smoke it almost looked likesteam. also i dont know why it fired right up with fresh fuel in the bowl?

it may have had nothing to do with the fuel in the bowl. sounds like your glow plugs or relay i would test them first.

If your not giving your all at everything you do your just slowly failing
