white smoke from exhaust

i have a 2001 7.3 and there is white smoke coming out the exhaust and it has a strong diesel smell. it also idles rough. sometimes it will clear up (not for long) it is very hard to crank in the mornings if it is not plugged in. when it cranks it seems like it flooded just for a minute.

Hm I dunno for sure but white smoke and "something about injectors" seems like it's not getting enough fuel. Best thing to do is get it scanned again and get a history of the codes if ya can.

Maybe someone with a little more incite will come along and give ya some more helpful info

I posted in your other thread about the same problem.

I would have an injector buzz test done, as well as a contribution test, check and clean the uvc connections on the outside of the valve covers, you may also want to pull the valve covers and check the uvc connections under the valve covers. Your syptoms show an injector problem.
