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
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.

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.
