White smoke out of exhaust in the morning?

Maybe once or twice a week when I start my truck (03 f250 7.3) there will be a great amount of white smoke that comes out of the exhaust. It was about 50 degree out this morning.

But after that there is no white smoke, its just when I start it, should I be concerned?

Mine has been starting pretty hard the past couples week to and when it does finally start there is a huge cloud of whit smoke. But it doesn't do it when I plug it in. So I'm thinking my glow plugs or relay is about worn out. It's gotten down to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. You may be having a similar problem when I get it checked out I'll let you know. It sounds like a pretty similar problem. It's just gets a little colder up here

I'd say plugs as well. I don't have any of my plugs in working order and it will roll smoke like no other on a cool morning. Plug in the block heater over night and it fires right up with no smoke.

It a regular thing my 99 250 does it in the mornings too. I have tested all my glow plugs and they are all good so it just standard operation for them from what i have read on here. though id suggest cycling the glow plugs 2 or 3 times it might help a little

Mine did that when the glow plug relay kicked the bucket. I bet it's either that or plugs as others have mentioned. You can improve the relay with the Stancor relay mod.

NO point to cycle, the glow plugs stay on for up to 2 minutes, the WTS light is just a idiot light.
