Ford Fiesta Mk3 very cold start at -45C
Ignition action starts at 1:30
* I started my Ford fiesta 1.3 from 92 after 3 days in really cold weather.
Temperature was -45C at that beautiful morning .
Video is long because i decided to warm up the battery first a little and
had no time to cut the video. No gas pedal, only clutch pedal down, because
the liquids were really thick and i didnt want to float the old engine
'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.
Extreme cold start -33C (-27,4F), no pre-heat, Mazdaspeed 6 turbo
Please, read description below! It will most likely answer your question.
We were on a ski trip in northern Finland. The whole week was freezing,
-25C to -35C all the time. Obviously, it was too cold to ski. The car layed
completely unused on a parking lot for five days. When leaving, I had to do
this cold start, and thought it would be worth filming. Battery was
original, about five years old, and it survived really well. No Engine
heater, battery heater/charger or any other device was used. Pure cold
Idle revs are higher at low temperatures, thanks to automatic choke. Nobody
touches the accelerator at any time. I'm actually releasing the clutch @
0:43 to keep revs low, I thought cold and thick transmission oil would
cause some troubles to engine and lower the revs. If I remember correctly,
idle revs were somewhere around 2500 - 3000 rpm during the start.
The coldest start before this was -22C. It's much more gentle for the
engine than this. However, after this I got new battery and a block heater,
just in case. I know continuous starts like this will kill the engine very
quick, but doing it once hardly did any damage. Car had 150 000km (almost
100 000 miles) on it when I sold it, and it still worked fine.
Smart CDI -29C cold start
8th December, 2009. Novosibirsk, Russia. Cranks pretty good, but baaaarely
starts... Smart fortwo says "leave me alone, dude". ABS and ESP freezed,
which is why there's a warning light on the dash. The steering is very hard
at the beginning due to freezed suspension. I used Liqui Moly diesel
antigel, whis is the best in my oppinion, although a bit pricey.
59' Hayes first start in 10yrs
This is my 59' Hayes Clipper 220 Cummins first start in 10 plus years. Put
a couple batteries in it and she whirled right over and fired.
'56 White 9000TD: First Start in 18 Years
It took my brother, my dad, and myself the better part of a day to get
everything tuned up and repaired so that we could fire up my 1956 White
9000TD for the first time in 18 years. It only took two sniffs of ether
(one for each start up) to get it running. We ran it for almost an hour
while checking over everything, starting and stopping it to see how it
started on diesel only, to fill the oil system back up, and to check out
the hydraulics (no clutch yet, started it up with the hydraulics in gear).
Scania K82 cold start
Scania K82 1985 cold start with forced fuel injection. It must have been
COLD... don´t remember...
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
1975 Mercedes Benz 300D EXTREME -20F Cold Start Winter W115 OM617
((Look at my new cold start video, all the bugs are fixed))
I only paid 300 dollars for it, the guy thought it had a blown engine, but
it turned out the timing on the injector pump was way off. I ended up
taking the injector pump off and putting it on the right teeth, and doing
the drip test, and etc. It has rolled over twice now, it has finally just
broke in at around 230,000 miles. It runs great and I put about 45 miles a
day on it. Best diesel ever made in my opinion. Keep in mind it is VERY
cold sometimes in North Idaho, and this afternoon it was a cold day, and it
finally started. It starts way better in 30 degrees and up weather! :-)
