First Start Of The 6,2 Diesel In My '81 Caprice
Have been working on this conversion for over a month now, working on it
whenever I had spare time. All I'm missing now is the Exhaust and some wiring. Engine is from a 1988
Suburban, I have a video of this engine running in that car. The car had a
350 Olds diesel in it.
Hard To Start 1983 GMC Suburban 6,2 Diesel
It was around -15 celcius and we had to get the Suburban startet to pull
some other cars. I think some glow plugs were bad, and many of the
batteries we tryed was not good enough. Once it started it knocked like
crazy the first minutte.
1981 GM Oldsmobile 5.7 diesel started after 13 years
I picked up this '81 Oldsmobile Cutlass with the V8 5.7L diesel engine (
350 DX engine block), I was told it was upgraded with the Goodwrench
engine in 1985 and also a new injector pump . It was parked and forgotten
in a NJ barn in 2000 , not sure why , and it wasn't started since , but
upon installing 2 new batteries it started right up , no noises , knocks or
smoke , it runs beautiful !
Driving in the Olds Diesel
Several people have asked to see more videos driving the Olds Diesel. This
is a cold start in the morning (it was about 40 last night, probably 50 in
the garage), followed by a cruise around the neighborhood. Turn down your
subwoofer - camera picked up some low rumbles that you don't hear while
gm 5.7 350 Olds Turbo Diesel Station Wagon
Finally One year after its put in we have a video!!!! And 20,000 Miles
Later. This is what we put the Oldsmobile turbo Diesel in, a 1988 Buick Estate Wagon. There
is Some video of the engine running in the car and the pressure gauge. It
runs up to about 7 Psi when we have a load while driving. Pretty nice
running car, we have got up to 30MPG on the highway, and just regular daily
driving we get an average of about 24MPG, from what my father said.
6.2 Diesel Cold Start
Starting my '87 Chevy after 3 Years.
Hearing that old Detroit roar to life was like talking to a long-lost
friend. Now I need to find an El Camino to stuff this boat anchor into!
Thanks to 1997cr80r for the suggestion
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
1982 Cadillac Coupe DeVille DIESEL
Have you ever seen one of these in person? Not many are left today. This
car has been gone through for reliability, if you can consider that
possible for an Olds 350 diesel. This car (since its an '82) has the
improved DX block, over the D block that was produced first. The D block
and its fuel system were pretty horrid. The DX is a far better engine, but
either can be worked with to become much more reliable. I personally
believe the DX ha more potential. Is it a powerhouse? No way, but gets
respectable fuel economy for such a big car, and hasn't given me any
trouble so far.
I just love the expressions from people I see on the road and at the truck
stops where I fuel up.
Look for more videos of this car in the future!

This is the final of 4 videos. We all believe that we have the Timing in
the right spot. There is some views of the turbo. This engine has a turbo from a 6.5l GM diesel, and the turbo is running from both manifolds.
