Problems starting...sometimes!

Sometimes my late 99 7.3l w/ 180,000 miles has trouble starting, mainly when it's below 50 degrees outside. If it is plugged in it starts right up.

When under 50, the starter will turn till it bogs down. Then plug in for a few and starts right up.

White smoke for 30 secs after it cranks also.

Any thoughts?

Search man.
There is at least 1-2 threads per week on the exact same thing.

Go to the 99-03 section on the first page. There are some stickies in that section you should read.
