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.
BMW X3 E83 Cold Start -32
-32C. Bmw x3 3.0d e83 with Webasto !
I made two more videos to show that car starts now perfectly and I will add another one as soon as the temperature will drop. Reason why car didn't start in this video is because 3 of 6 glow plugs were not working.
Я снял ещё два видео, чтобы показать, что машина заводится сейчас отлично.
Причина, по которой машина не заводилась в этом видео, в том, что 3 из 6 свечей накаливания не работали.
1975 Mercedes Benz 300D VERY Cold Start Winter W115 OM617 (-19F)
((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. It has rolled over twice now, it has finally just broke in at around 230,000 miles. It runs great and I put about 45 miles a day on it. Best diesel ever made in my opinion. Keep in mind it is VERY cold sometimes in North Idaho, and this afternoon it was a cold day, and it finally started. It starts way better in 30 degrees and up weather! :-)
Extreme cold start -33C (-27,4F), no pre-heat, Mazdaspeed 6 turbo
Please, read description below! It will most likely answer your question.
We were on a ski trip in northern Finland. The whole week was freezing, -25C to -35C all the time. Obviously, it was too cold to ski. The car layed completely unused on a parking lot for five days. When leaving, I had to do this cold start, and thought it would be worth filming. Battery was original, about five years old, and it survived really well. No Engine heater, battery heater/charger or any other device was used. Pure cold start.
Idle revs are higher at low temperatures, thanks to automatic choke. Nobody touches the accelerator at any time. I'm actually releasing the clutch @ 0:43 to keep revs low, I thought cold and thick transmission oil would cause some troubles to engine and lower the revs. If I remember correctly, idle revs were somewhere around 2500 - 3000 rpm during the start.
The coldest start before this was -22C. It's much more gentle for the engine than this. However, after this I got new battery and a block heater, just in case. I know continuous starts like this will kill the engine very quick, but doing it once hardly did any damage. Car had 150 000km (almost 100 000 miles) on it when I sold it, and it still worked fine.

smart fortwo cdi -12C Startup (barely)
Having lots of trouble this winter with cold starts. -12 C wouldn't have been a problem other years, but something's not right... Went to change the glow plugs out but they're seized into the engine head. Battery seems OK. Could be low compression, I guess? At just over 262 000 km (4 years), now.
