if its running normal then it's normal while cold...same reason as a gas motor.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

Except you can simulate a forest fire with the amount a diesel puts out

But OP if your getting ALOT of white smoke while driving your just pushing it too hard for as cold as it is. Either warm it up a bit with high idle and EBPV before taking off or take it real easy until it warms up(i.e no highway/interstate driving).

I like to keep it a bit under 2k rpms until it warms up to about 100° then ill drive a little more normally until its up to temp then its fine to drive whatever you normally do

That steam is normal when it's that cold...our T800 Kenworths both do the same thing, especially when we're on the throttle. Even the John Deere that we're using to push snow piles will do it.

This was my truck a few weeks ago at -30*Cish, exhaust dumps under the bed right now. It will puke that acrid smelling smoke for a while. Starts doing it around the freezing mark but gets worse the colder the temp is.

Even so, it's pretty well cleared up after 15 minutes maximum.

How long were you driving it? If you can, plug it in when it's cold. Some people are proud of their trucks being able to fire right up in cold weather. That's great and all, but I don't want to cause any undue stress to my injectors by forcing it to run with honey for oil.

As for it continually smoking while driving. If you didn't drive for long...meh. If you drove for a while and it kept bellowing the white smoke, you may have a fubar'd thermostat. You can throw a piece of card board in front of the radiator to help a little until you can replace the thermostat.
