Rough start with lots of white smoke
So I get up this morning and go to start the truck and I had some issues. First of all the weather was a little cool, probably around 40 to 45 degrees. So I get in the truck and cycle the glow plugs about 3 or 4 times before cranking the engine. When I went to fire it, it miss fired and popped. So I went to fire it again and it just cranked and cranked but would not fire. So I tried firing it again and this time a butt load of white smoke barrelled out of the stacks and it still didnt fire. I then turned the key to off waited about 10 seconds and tried to start again. this time it fired immediately and it seems to be running just fine.
Is it plugs?
I was also thinking that maybe it could be the oil Im running in it? Im running Amsoil 5w-30.
Can any one talk about this? Thanks in advance.
