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.

Diesel Variable Geometry Turbo Introduction

The Diesel Variable Geometry turbo or turbocharger is the answer to today's
demanding diesel engine requirements. turbo or turbine air induction does not mix with
EGR and modern clean diesel requirements. See how a variable geometry turbocharger differs from normal turbos. Variable geometry turbos or VGTs are here to stay. They are ECM or
computer controlled and use no waste gate. Used by most manufacturers
(Cumming, Carterpillar & Navistar), knowledge of their operation is a must.
See how it all works in this video, one inf our Diesel VGT series.
