I forgot to plug in my truck and this is the cold start on Christmas morning.
BMW E46 330d -29C cold start, Finland
The car has been sitting in the cold for 3 days without being started, the temperatures were all the time around -25 to -30 in celsius. Defa heater was on for about 3 hours and I also have integrated battery charger so battery was full. Windows are clean because i have internal heater also, and cleaned the windows from snow before the video. First the ignition key slipped out from between my fingers, thats why I had to do a second try. Location is 300km north from the arctic circle, Koppelo-Ivalo, Lapland, Finland.
Ford Cummins School Bus SUPER COLD START
SHOWN IN REAL TIME. This is an old video from last winter, with some pictures too. No grid heaters (because it doesn't have them) No glow plugs (Cummins doesn't use those) No block heater No ether. Sitting for Months. EDIT 1/21/14 Since people don't read the description, the purpose of this video was to illustrate starting an old, mechanical diesel without the use of starting aids. I know damn well how to make one start.
