colder then you know what

Well I am down here in Texas it has dropped 50 degrees in the past day we might stay cold down here as long as up north but we do see some nasty weather at any given time and right now as it probably is most places it is 20 degrees outside and -1 wind chill which makes it worse and i started up the truck this am and it farted for a sec smoked then finally sounded like it should then about ten hours later i came out from weight lifting practice and it did the same thing ,but this time I did not think it was going to start I think it needs glow plugs and to be plugged in at night also I went ten miles to wal-mart stopped and idled it while my sister went in and all of a sudden the rpm jumped 1/2 thousand to 1 thousand rpm i think that is normal but why did it do that trying to warm up or what and the truck has 139,000 miles could it be it needs new Glow plugs, I think the smoke was moisture in the pipes thanks and sorry about the run on sentence

haha silly southerners. It will start a little hard when it is cold out. There are write ups in the tech files about testing glow plugs. The high idle is also normal and just keeps it warm when it idles up here in Norther IL it high idles as soon as you put it in park because it is cold. Pluging it in wouldnt hurt but at 20 degrees it should start fine. It was bout 0 today and mine started without the heater.

None of you guys really know what cold is. When I woke up this morning to start my truck the thermometer said it was -20 and thats not even including the wind chill.
