Should I worry about it??

The truck is still new to me, and I have noticed a puff of smoke at start up. The temps have started to fall to 45 Deg. and less. It's just a puff on the cold start, and then its fine after that. Being a diesel Noob, I'm just wondering if I should check anything.

Thanks!

It will be helpful knowing what has been done to the truck. Also what color the smoke is.

mine gives a little puff like this, it also does it in the summer but its black.
i was told its from a combination of the tuning and the vanes of the turbo not open yet.

You need a monitor to watch battery voltage and ficm voltage.....Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.
Do you have a ccv mod?

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.
