WTS Light? - do you get it when you first roll-on the key?

Tach Movement? - does the tach needle move up slightly when cranking?

Fuel - pump runs? Fuel refilling filter housing? Tank below 1/4?

WFS light comes on and goes out. Haven't pay'd that much attention to know about the tach. This happened yesterday morning so last night drained the filter bowl cuz there was sediment in the bottom. Put the new filter in and fired the truck up. Drove it home and never had a problem. Tell this morning.

Check voltage drop on your glow plug relay. If you hook up the meter on the 2 large lugs and then cycle the key on you should get less than 0.02 volts on the meter. You should have approx 12 volts when the key is off. If you have more than 0.02 volts key on engine off then you need a new relay. The smoke is a very good indication that you have a glow plug issue.
