Smile Big Thanks to everyone on here

Im new to diesels. Ive always had a truck but never a diesel or a ford for that matter. This morning my truck wouldnt start, got down to -10 with windchill last night and dummy me, didnt plug the truck in. Found the plug location with in 1 minute of a search on here. Putting new Warn Premium hubs on tonight as well, guess where I found all the information on them? thats right, powerstroke.org. Also did the 05-07 front end on my 01 with information found here.

At that temp, I'd be worried about gelled fuel. Are you using any kind of anti-gel?

- Glad to have you jump in. Glad you found the info you needed.

I'd agree with Nicholas (2006PSDSD) - There are several fuel additives that have anti-gel ingredients in them. It'd be good to use one.

Also some recommend going to a 5W-40 oil during winter. Helps with cold starts.

it depends, most gas stations add it anyhow, but diesel klean er how ever it is spelled is good, or diesel911 (the red one) is also good.

You do know "wind chill" has No Effect on your truck. Only the thermometer means anything...

If the station you bought from sells a lot of diesel it should already have the anti gel in it. But it doesn't hurt to have some on hand. I would also follow the write up I did on troubleshooting the GP system to make sure everything is working properly. If everything is working as it should the truck should have little trouble starting at 20 below.
