2002 F350 wont start,white smoke leaking antifreeze

Hey guys, new to the powerstroke.org family.

I have a 2002 Ford F350 7.3 with 89,000 miles and everything is still factory.
last week it when it started warming up here (bout 50 degrees) when i tried to start the truck it would not turn over and when i tried again it would almost fire up but then just keep trying to turn over, I noticed my antifreeze was leaking and white smoke was heavy when trying to start and finally starting Im no mechanic but white smoke should only be there when its 7 degrees

if anybody has or had this problem, id really appreciate some info.

were is your antifreeze leaking at? If it is comming out of the degas bottle then you may have some leaking injector cups.
