Plugged in white smoke

Been pretty cold here for the past few days. Have the truck plugged in on a timer. After sitting for a day when I start it there is alot of white smoke. GPR is new. When not plugged in above 20 degrees I get minimal smoke if any. Any ideas?

Sounds like your plug has a broken wire and is not working. You could have 1 or 2 glow plugs that are not working also.

If you put your ear on the hood you should be able to hear the block heater working.....If not check the plug as they usually cook first....

Depending on background noise you should hear the heater perking away right above the left frt tire if it's working right. That's where you're closest to the heater from outside the truck.

Yup, she's perkelating. Fires off after two seconds but still seems like alot of smoke for being plugged in.

I get smoke from mine too, so does my buddy.. seems to be "normal" on these trucks when it's cold. It usually just smokes until it warms up.

Being plugged in doesn't warm up the incoming air charge or warm the entire block. Cold air leads to incomplete combustion and the result is white smoke until the engine comes up to operating temperature.
