Run then died and won't start

I started my truck up this morning and hauled a 18 ft flat bed trailer about 30 miles. Had to do a couple of things and then took off again. Filled up on diesel and went to school. Fired the truck up after school and took off. About 200 ft after i fired up and the truck chugged and then died when rolling. Tried to start back up and had to crank for a little while then it fired up and pushed a bunch of white smoke, i was holding it at about 2000 rpms, then the rpms would jump around and then die. Anything like this ever happen to anybody. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like a bad batch of fuel....cps,..icm..or a burn't plug to a valve cover harness.Also if you have it chipped it may be the chip.

did you get fuel at a regular stop or a new place. I always get diesel at a truck stop, so I know it's fresh. I'm betting on bad fuel.

drain your fuel bowl, check valve cover harnesses, as well as the under valve cover harnesses, and pull codes if any.

My best bet is the fuel, i got it from conoco when i was near that part of town. i dont have a way to get codes but i will run by autozone and get it scaned. i know the valve cover harnesses are good because o replaaced the glowplugs a couple of weeks before and the all looked good. the truck is running right now, hauled a 6k trailer a couple of days ago and the threw 1700 lbs in the bed and the truck drove like it was nothing.
