    Alright... used to be a Mechanic... but specialized in Chevys and Hondas.... and I think I know the problem but not sure.... I parked the truck (03 v6 dbl cab) at school round noon and went to leave around 6 and it took a little longer to crank... and when it did white smoke came out of the tailpipe... first time this has happened and it is a little colder than usual here in NOLA.... what you guys think....

    nothing to worry about. When its cold out a little puff of white smoke is ok.

    The reason for slow start? The motors cold..lol

    its all good. I have remote start on my 3.4, and it takes one or 2 tries for it to start when its cold out.
