    hello everybody

    i just changed the heater core, did a tune-up and changed valve cover gaskets
    when i start er up, i get white smoke doesn't smell sweet - smells kinda like gas
    if i let the truck run for 15 - 20 mins, the smoke goes away
    my question is, is it normal for this to happen every time i start it cold ?
    could there be a condition of higher-than-normal condensation here?

    thanks
    -lou

    Sounds like the choke isn't operating correctly. I was having the same problem a week or two ago. Pretty lengthy post about it and the solution. Look for a post titled "cold-blooded SOB". Grim Reaper knows the in and outs of it.
