new truck need help

hey im new to the site and just got a 95 7.3 powerstroke. i had a few questions, im new to diesels. and it has trouble on cold starts and also it acts up when you get into it up a hill. first off when i try starting it cold it blows a ton of blueish white smoke and has a miss. i wanted to try the buzz test but i dont know what i need to do the test. also on a 95 being obd1 can i just jump the two wires on the dlc to get the flash codes?

2nd problem when i was drivin it home it started acting up. it started chocking and blowin white smoke and i tried to clear it up by pushin the clutch in and reving it but it hesitated real bad and started missing real bad i almost had to pull over.

any guidance/help would be appreciated. thanks rick

for ya

i'd say the cold start issue is related to your glow-plug system. Might want to check your glow-plug Relay; if it's good then you need to replace your glow plugs.

doesnt really matter man...it happens all the time

Chances are that someone will see it from the home page anyway, so they won't know what section its in
