Arctic cat diesel cold start -25C
I found another cold start video that i made last winter but forgot to upload, in this one the throttle isn't stuck frozen as in the previous video, so the engine is easier to start if i give it a bit throttle, this engine does not have any kind of cold start device that advances the timing or increases the throttle when cold, so that's why it's hard to start without additional throttle, and as soon as i let it go back to idle too quickly when cold, it will stall, that's because the governor is not fast enough to "meet up" the RPM drip.
This is a prechamber-diesel, so it would never start without a pre-glow like a direct injected diesel can do. but it did only need one pre-glow cycle, so it will probably start in even colder temperatures with several glow cycles.
the squeeking noise is the CVT fan motor that has bad bearings.

We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20 years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine.

1985 Oldsmobile 98 cold start and drive
1985 Front wheel drive Olds 98 Regency Brougham with 163k miles. Cold start at -6 celsius. It's got an Buick 3.8 MPFI engine and THM440-T4 transmission. It's having original paint in quite good condition. Currently having just one rust spot near the left tail light. I'll fix that next summer. I've already repaired rust damages on all door bottoms. Needed to weld new metal. The brown stuff you can see on drivers door is anti corrosion spray.
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.
