To Plug in on cold start or not to plug in? That is the q..
Hello - Rookie to the 6.0 and Diesel world. I have a 2004 6.0 with 130k on it. Its a 2wd, srw - very basic, no goodies and not all that pretty aside of saying 350.
My question is about plugging it in when its this cold. I am in North Dallas, where its about 24F out right now. But normally during the winter, its about freezing. I have to work pretty early, and would rather not sit by the house as the truck is pretty loud. Will plugging it in reduce the warm up time and help the start?
I have read a few tips in the searches, including putting the cord over the mirror so its not forgotten and getting a timer to start it say - 2-3 hours before I will be starting the truck.
I wanted to verify this and see if there is anything else recommended.
Thank you for the help, I love reading in here. (and searching)
