Smoke at start-up

Ok guys got a question when starting first thing in the morning white smoke and a lil blue haze , then the rest of the day all good 97 f250 4x4 7.3 5spd w/ 257.000 plus miles ,she starts and runs fine . it doesn't matter if its 0 or 100 out side. I'm thinking injectors or cups , last year i had new injectors o-rings but not new injectors

Completely normal for a diesel to smoke some for the first few minutes or so when it is started for the first time of the day.

A video of what it looks like would help.

Re: Smoke at start-up

Every 7.3 ive ever seen does it eventually cold, but doing it whle hot too would lead me to think a bad injector...

Re: Smoke at start-up

I was on a hunting trip this last week with the temperatures dipping into the single digits and every time that I started my truck I had the blue haze for quite a while. White smoke it just unburnt fuel usually because of the cold block.

Re: Smoke at start-up

We just had our first cold night here in Reno, Nevada. Mid 30's. Mine does the same thing, once the engine begins to warm up the smoke begins to go away. And if the truck starts fine, it is probably not a glow plug issue, but you never know.
