99 psd 7.3 starts then dies then acts perfect

i have a 99 psd wih 200000 miles and just like a week ago it started acting up.. if it sets overnight or for a few hours it takes a while to crank but it does start and kinda jumps a lil bit but then it acts fine, i start down the road and it makes it a few hundred yards and just dies in the road i pull off the road and it cranks a while and starts back with alot of white smoke and i can smell raw fuel and the whole truck sways back and forth like its missing something awfull, then when the temp starts going up it quits smoking smooths out and runs and starts fine untill its sets for a while agian and then it starts alover again... i checked it with a mac tools scanner and it comes up like 3 codes... i had a transmissionput in from ford a month and half ago, new alternator and 2 new batterys new starter soloinoid and the soloinoid on top of the motor that i was told was a glow plug relay..
heres the codes

wastegate valve perf

fuel pressure reg (cranking)

I can't remember if the early 99's still had checkvalves in the HPOP resevoir or not. Sounds to me like the HPOP resevoir is bleeding off and has te refill after sitting awhile but I'm not sure.

sounds to me like you might have hpop o-rings leaking , need to fix the leak , change the oil and try it again, oil is either low or in bad shape or both
