Just bought this '99 f450 powerstroke. Hard starting. Pumps out a lot of white smoke while cranking - smells like raw vaporized fuel. Runs fine once started. 250k. Haven't checked anything yet. Thanks.
Thanks for your input. My GPR has checked out ok. Haven't checked glow plugs yet. Suspect that's the problem area. I did plug in block heater the other day (not too cold), and it started, so I think I'm on the right track. Stay warm up there.
