Another SMOKE thread...

OK so here's a first post usually because I can find all the answers I need by searching. This time is different however in that I'm just not comfortable diagnosing this yet. Here's what happend....Truck stayed out all last night but it only got down to about 35 degrees. Started it up mid morning with it in the upper 40s and no real issues but only had to go a few miles. Truck didn't get up to operating temps when I got to where I needed to go and it sat for about an hour and a half. I got in to leave and started it and when I pulled away I saw a big cloud/haze following my truck spewing out of the exhaust. I made it about 100 yards before I stopped and got out to check it out. It was a whitish smoke with maybe a bluish haze but it was hard to tell. The coolant was still good and at the cold line. After some freaking out I drove it home and the smoke pretty much went away completely. Drove it about 3 hours continuously and no problems but still a slight haze if it has been sitting more than 30min. Could some people chime in on this please. Its an 05 wish about 119K. Thanks and sorry for the long post but I wanted to be specific....even though I probably left something out.

Oh, so far this year the truck has been started cold and in colder weather (20s-low30s) and this didnt happen at all which is why I sorta freaked out when it happened on a pretty decent day.

Just to be sure on this, all these diesels are a little rough on a cold start though right? As in under 40 degrees cold.
