Quite Impressed

So it was -15c here yesterday, and since its my first winter with my truck I decided to go and try to start the old girl. preheated for a minute, and flashed right up. Surprised it did without being plugged in. Dads '99 and '01 absolutely hated the cold. As soon as it hit minus 5 that was it.. had to plug em in. Safe to say my glow plugs and relay are good for this winter

last week it was -20C here, didn't plug in my 96er. Had no problems all week. Tried to start on Saturday, no go, boosted with the van, just to realize a battery cable was loose on pass battery, tightened that and was good to go.
