    White smokin\'

    When I get out in the morning, my burb white smokes out both pipes and then it keeps smoking out the driver's side until it builds up heat. I noticed today that it did it out the driver's side after stopping just long enough to put in some go juice. Does anyone know what is causing this? I know I may have a dead cylinder, but the fact that the smoke stops after a while kind of rules that out in my book.

    I would say a bad Glow plug.
    My perkins doesn't have Glow plugs and it does exactly that.
    It takes a while for the engine to warm up and then the whit smoke goes, then if I stop for 10 minutes or idle it for ten min, whote comes back.
