ok so today i start my truck and it had been sitting all night and the low was around 60 F and sitting on some what of a hill (if that matters) and i run diesel kleen. and i never noticed this before but there was a small amount of whiteish smoke but cleared up right away. Truck has 2430,000 miles and i have had it for 2weeks do you think i need injectors or is pretty normal?:dunno:

My Ex had white smoke on start up that cleared shortly after. However, for me it wasn't a hit or miss occurrence, instead it happened on each start up. White smoke on start up is unburned COLD diesel. A quick glowplug job and the smoke has never returned!
