dont know where to start

okay so iv been having a problem getting my truck to start if its below 35 degrees. Truck cranks but wont ever fire, has white smoke pouring out of the exhaust while cranking, if you spray a little starting fluid in it will fire up and pour white smoke about 5 seconds and then clean out to nothing, sometimes it will start if you crank for about 5 seconds stop crank again for about 5 seconds and repeat this multiple times, other times it will start up and then instantly die like the motor is never fully firing. Im not sure if this is a lack of fuel problem since there is smoke, or if this is an injector issue. iv tested the gpr and its reading fine as are the gp. any ideas what could be happing here

First, and I'm sure I won't be the last guy to say this,,,, STOP USING EITHER!

If the GP system is actually function correctly you're risking doing Real damage I would go over the GP check carefully because it really sounds like that could be the problem (I don't mean to insult you here, I'm sure you've looked but) did you follow this -> Troubleshooting GPR & GP's

What happens if you plug it In for a few hours?
