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.

it up and mix the electrolite inside.

((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.
