Exclamation Glow Plugs and smoke?

Ok, i have some questions. Its been really cold up here in northern wi. Im pretty sure my glow plugs need to be replaced. The light stays on longer than what it has and has problems getting started, i have to turn it over 2-4 times. My outlet outside was shot but the last three mornings its had those starts and i let it warm up for 20 minutes. I get some white smoke when accelerating and if i step on it , it'll quit. Is that just becuase its really cold and water? would it be injectors? its not a ton of white smoke, just to get my attention and im constantly watching it, in only 16 and thats a costly job for injectors. But what do you guys think?

Have some one you trust-dealer,diesel shop and have them do a cylinder comp/buzz test,let them test it when cold-that's your best start

Oh-and fix your plug for easy cold morning starts after problems are solved-easier on the engine
