It depends on what car and engine you have. Just guessing, I would check the fuel pump relay if it has one.

What causes white smoke from diesel engine when its hot outside?

White smoke is unburned fuel, usually caused by low combustion temps in the engine. It should clear up after the engine warms up. If it takes a long time or the smoke persists when the engine is warm, it could be retarded injection. If you have a cold start lever pull it to the first notch and see if the smoke disappears. If not it could be an injector problem, or an injection problem (injection pump TDI... etc)

Why does a car start hard; it just cranks normal when the key is turned. It takes more time to start than it used to.?

Fuel may be draining back into the tank. So the engine will turn over but not start until the fuel reachs the engine. If it is damp out, the wires may be bad. The spark will arc before it gets to the plugs, preventing combustion. It takes fuel, spark and combustion to make an engine run.
