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?
GPR?
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.

I get a little blue smoke when its cold out. had some starting/charging issues afew days ago similar to you. i had the same billowing white smoke and from what i was told, the white smoke means that your glow plugs weren't activated.

It may be the relay, either that or it just hasnt been as cold. It hasnt done that again, just that one time. I guess I'll have to wait til it gets really cold and find out. Thank for the replies....

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and joined as I am just starting to notice some issues with my 2005 6.0L. My truck only has 58,000 miles on it but it is definitly not running like it should. I too noticed a very rough start/idle yesterday morning, it was about 45 degrees outside, and the truck ran very rough and loud until it was warm. It also seemed to not want to accelerate even with the pedal to the floor! Any thoughts on what is up would be greatly appreciated.

Best thing to do is go to the forums and start a new thread so your issue can get more views

I had my trucks computer re-flashed at the dealership. They told me that there is updated info to put in the computer to help with cold starts. Mine was running real rough and loud with a cold start, not it is rough for about 10 seconds and smooths right out.
