7.3 white smoke help!!

Okay so this all started after i changed my oil the other day, about a day after i changed the oil i ran it wide open for about 2 miles, when i got done it stunk like anti freeze, but the level didnt seem to have diffierentatied. For a couple days since then its been fine only smelling anti freeze once when i stepped on it. Today i went to start it up and it blew a tiny puff of white smoke at start up(it was a little colder then normal at 40 degrees last night). I checked the oil and it looks good, coolant is still bright green, coolant level dosent seem to have gone down noticably and i couldnt find any visible leaks. Im kinda lost now as of what to do, also never had any overheating problems. By the way its an early 99

If it's still the original engine it could be a tiny leak with the injector cups. The old type of "glue" they used would break down with the wrong antifreeze iirc.

Well, first find out if that is where it's actually coming from. Could be a head gasket to. Idk.

Any who. You have to pull the injectors, rent/buy special tool from RiffRaff diesel to remove injector cups. I believe there on their site they may have directions on how to do it.
