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.

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.
