White Smoke Start Up

When I fire my truck up in the mornings it smokes like crazy til its warmed up some. I realize this is just unburned fuel because the motor is so cold, but I didn't know if all diesels did this or if my injectors leak. Any ideas?

a few bad glow plugs will cause white smoke.

I just got mine back from the dealer today for the same issue. $85 I had to pay for them to tell me no codes means nothing is wrong. They said it is normal in the winter.

Yeah its done it since I bought it two years ago. I live in Kansas City its crazy weather around here anywhere from 5*to 40* in the mornings. It smokes unburned fuel anytime its fired up and cold outside. If the block heater has been plugged in it doesn't do it very bad.
I just couldn't imagine that it smoked on start up like this when it was new. Just wanted to know what caused it.

How would you test individual glow plugs?

always make sure maintenance is up on a diesel for colder temps , and in my opinion any thing under 35 degrees they need to be plugged in anyway
