This morning when i went out to crank my truck i let the wait to start light go off then cranked it. It cranked for approx. 10 sec then i quit. I cycled the key and tryed it again and it fired right up as it normally would other than it blew out a big cloud of mixed black/white smoke? Anyone know what could cause this?

My truck will do the same thing once in a while.

Almost chokes the stack out with a greyish hazey smoke.

I know what happened.

It happens to me every now and then. You must've had the key on for a little too long, and the GPR switched off. Then, you tried to crank it, but the cylinders were too cold to fire. Then, when you turned it off, and back on, it reavtivated the GP's, giving you heat for the fire. The smoke and haze was the unburnt fuel from you trying to fire the truck with no GP's.

That's kinda what I figured it was. Somethin along the lines of unburnt fuel.

Just couldn't put it in those fancy technical terms. Thanks for clearing it up
