    If it is fuel, it will stink and if it only lasts a short time, is probably early signs of a glow plug on it's way out.

    Does it smell really bad of a acrid choking smell? and clearly not of either normal exhaust fumes or steam?

    Does it also take some cranking to start first thing in the morning, or when fully cold??
