Sounds like you have a blown or seeping head gasket on one cylinder. You need to take it in and have it checked. You could also check your coolant level when truck is cool. You will need to remove the radiator cap to check properly. DO NOT REMOVE CAP WHEN HOT!!!! You could also pull the sparkplugs and see if one is wet after it sits for some time.

My h100 just started to miss and give off black smoke


It sounds like its running rich (too much fuel) May be a leaking fuel injector causing rich conditions & black smoke & the miss.

My 2005 gmc canyon just started blowing smoke out tail pipe but it doesnt do it everytime i start it. is this bad?


Possibly a leak in the head gasket. Take out the plugs and see if they are water wet. Run a compression check.

2005 dodge cummings has real bad miss and blows white smoke at idle and when driving


You might want to watch your coolant level. Open your radiator, fill it to full, and start the truck. If bubbles form, you might have a broken head gasket. Also, check to see how your water seperator and fuel filter are looking. But it sounds kind of like a head gasket.

Hi have white smoke and miss at start up


White smoke could be as simple as condensation in exhaust from sitting overnight. I'd be more concerned if white smoke continued when warmed up. The "miss" could be a bunch of things... When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters including fuel filter? I would start there, makes a good "ground zero" reference point and see if miss is still evident. You might also consider running a good fuel system cleaner w/next tank full of gas. Especially in winter months when temps fluctuate, condensation forms in tank. (water) Spark plugs & water don't get along well.
