my hpop reservoir was leaking down to empty overnite, it would make a loping idle sound very very rough like 3 cylinders were firing at first start up. I would shut it off immediatly and restart. It would do this like 4 times til it was ok. It made me nervous.
If you ever let it sit that long again, pull the sight plug on top of the reservoir and see if its still full. It wont be to the top but will be to the sending unit level.(back of the reservoir drivers side) should be to where thats threading in(approx) Would be a place to start?
You would also want to glowplugs to be working. But if its that cold just overnite is cold enough to need glowplugs. Not a week of sitting. So if in cold tempsits fine in the morning but not fine after a week check oil levels. I can explain what i found with mine if you pm me, iff it turns out to be your problem.
