97 Powerstroke wont start

97 Powerstroke 4x4 5 spd won't start. Been hard to start the last few days since its gotten colder but now its not starting at all. It blows white smoke while cranking. The WTS light comes on and goes off like normal. I can hear the glow plug click on. Spins and spins and sometimes it stumbles like its trying to fire. The tach spins up when I crank it. Already replaced fuse 22 and 17 even though they were fine. what else can I check before I tow it in?

These problems get more & more common this time of year. Just because you hear the GPR doesn't mean things are working with the system. I'd start with a check-out of the plugs & relay...
