Will not start

I have a 99 f350 7.3 turbo,my problem with it right now is, It will turn over the tach doesn't move and and the oil pressure takes about 20 seconds to come up, and it will not start then either , unless you use silicone spray then it will start right up. Now when the engine temp is in operating range the truck will start up and the tach moves and oil pressure is right there. I put a new oil pump on it last year also with new batteries?? I'm just wondering if I need a new starter?

White smoke, has a miss

I have a 99f350 7.3 turbo, I bought a used motor with 140,000 on it. And I left the same oil that was in it when I bought it, I drove it for about a 100 miles on that oil, it was running fine no white smoke or miss, I had the oil changed the next morning I get in the truck to fire it up it started up then check engine light came on , I proceed to rev up the engine when the rpm got around 2000 to 3 it started missing and when let of the petal it started white smoking, and I put in gear and held my foot in brake it would only rev up to 1000 rpm and had no power,I changed the fuel filter I changed the icp sensor and checked the wire harness going in and under the valve covers , but the truck is not throwing any codes. Don't know where else to start at ???
