Hey guys i have a 2001 dodge 3500 cummins 24 valve 6 speed, i got a littl e problem. I have about 210000 miles on the truck and when it first starts up in the mornin it puffs white smoke and pops and doesent rev up when u hit the ga pedal then it revs very slowly then when it gets runnin for a few minutes it is fine. I havechanged the fuel filter, i have the BD fuel lift pump and have 28 psi of fuel at the pump, i think it might be injector pump time, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a 98.5 cummins And this was EXACTLY what was hapening to me. I borrowed a buddies code reader and found that i had the dreaded 216 injection pump timing failure code. A new injection pump fixed the problem.

YOu ned to reset your BD lift pump, 28 PSI is far too much. 15 to 20 psi is waht you want.

still may have a bad IP.

On the 2001+ trucks, you can do the key trick to check codes in the odometer window.

Turn key to On (like turning to listen to radio)
turn key back to off

Turn key to On
turn key back to off

Turn key to On
leave there and look in odometer window for trouble codes...

report your findings back here and then we can help.
:thumbsup

+1 on the lift pump pressure. I have heard of this causing hard start problems. Probably an injection pump, but the pressure should be lower anyhow, and it MIGHT fix it. I don't know if I understand it correctly but I think the high pressure causes problems for the diaphragm helper pump inside the vp.
