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 !
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
the squeeking noise is the CVT fan motor that has bad bearings.

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

Original advertising laserdisc info for the 1980 Oldsmobile Diesel engine,
audio is harsh, sorry, don't know if it was any better than this in the
showrooms though LOL
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
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.
1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
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. Before starting it we put oil down
the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap,
Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the
Chevy vs. Ford Cop-Car Thrash Battle! Roadkill Episode 12
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan are out to discover
which used cop car they like best, the Chevy Caprice 9C1 or the Ford Crown
Victoria Police Interceptor P71. Of course you expect nothing but the most
professional, scientific analysis from these guys, and that includes a day
doing donuts and bashing into stuff on pavement, tire explosions, a road
trip to the desert, camping, thrashing on dirt roads, and a finale that
just might create a new form of low-buck off-road motorsport.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
