2001 F-250 SD 7.3 -0 starts and then 1 bank cuts out

Hey Guys

Need to leave in the morning and have a issue.

Truck as always started first time every time. No it is very hard to start - take 15-20 secs of cracking - truck starts and then in about 30 sec one side of the engine is not running and I get white smoke.

I buzz tested the injectors and everything looks fine. Replaced the IDM - no help.

Anything you might point me at? Next step is to remove the valve covers and check the pesky harness - but I would think the buzz test covered this....I have a love / hate relationship with the truck!

Thanks guys!

I would agree with you on the buzz test. But don't over look the harness. And don't take this personal but your sure the whole bank cuts out? And I would consider your times for your start a hard start. How many miles?
