Cold start problems, plugged in
I was having problems starting the truck when it got around 0C so I started to plug it in. Would start first crank every time even at -20C.
Its gotten colder here and now the truck wont start even when plugged in over night.
The GRP tests out fine, batteries are new, and I get a WTS light.
I'm taking it to a shop after the Christmas break, but if a truck had bad glow plugs, would it still be hard to start even while plugged in over night at -30?
Anything else I should look for? It starts with ether (yeah yeah, blah blah, sometimes I need to get to work at 5am).
I don't have a garage or tools in Alberta with me, so I will be having her fixed professionally but would rather know whats wrong first.
