8th December, 2009. Novosibirsk, Russia. Cranks pretty good, but baaaarely starts... Smart fortwo says "leave me alone, dude". ABS and ESP freezed, which is why there's a warning light on the dash. The steering is very hard at the beginning due to freezed suspension. I used Liqui Moly diesel antigel, whis is the best in my oppinion, although a bit pricey.

Mercedes Benz Diesel EXTREME -20F Cold Start Winter W115
((Look at my new cold start video, all the bugs are fixed))
I only paid 300 dollars for it, the guy thought it had a blown engine, but
it turned out the timing on the injector pump was way off. I ended up
taking the injector pump off and putting it on the right teeth, and doing
the drip test, and etc.

97 7.3 PowerStroke cold start gone wrong caught on camera
*[= READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE COMMENTING =]*
THIS TRUCK FAILED TO START BECAUSE OF WEAK BATTERIES AND A DYING STARTER
After letting my 97 F350 7.3 PowerStroke Diesel sit for a week I go out to
start it up after it being 15 degrees the night before. Block heater
wasn't plugged in.
First the starter solenoid stuck and kept on cranking and cranking the
engine without giving me any consideration, it wasn't until I pop the hood
that it decided to listen to reason, and I mean just as I was about to open
it it shut off HA HA HA!
After doing some looking I found some oil dripping from under the engine
and my first thought was I blew a HPOP seal or HP oil line, but nope, after
some looking I found the oil coming from the oil cooler, and I also was
smelling some antifreeze.
I guess the weather change caused the seals on the oil cooler to begin to
I have done a complete tear down of this engine, check it out at
In April 2013 I just put a new starter solenoid on it, and I will be taking
it back to Advanced Auto Parts to get a new one as it is CLEARLY defective,
it's done this several other times but never for more than 1-3 seconds and
it usually only did it when I would shut the truck off. Crazy.
This same week I was blessed enough to have found a 96 F350 7.3 from the
original owner that is was in much better shape just in need of a e-fuel
