Exclamation should i be worried?

hey guys.. its been cold as hell and we've gotten about 8" with 30-40mph winds. so i haven't had school all week.bla bla bla

so there are light poles in the school parking lot i figured out that one of them has an outlet on it. needless to say me and m y friend plug our trucks in free electricity kinda funny they haven't noticed. anyway some idiot HIT THE POLE so they had to take it out. no more outlet

i have to go back to school tomorrow. its going to be -6 below tonight and 5 degrees tomorrow -20 - -30 below windchill. its going to sit outside from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm so its gonna be nice and cold. should i be worried about it starting? my friends got a 6.4 so hes probably fine

Yes, here we go again...lol, I have to disagree with earlier statement, windchill will affect your truck as it will cool down to ambianet temps much quicker, so you might have to go start it up sooner, (to keep some internal heat within) sooner than you planned.

If you havent got thinner select oil in the crank case, be prepared to be disappointed too. Go out and restart your truck on break, Good luck

if your FICM is in good working order and youve got thin synthetics you should be fine, unless your truck suffers from stiction and should use rev x you will be fine...

My truck started in -3* F the other day after sitting 13 hours not plugged in running 10w30 T5 and rev x 1k short of needing an oil change and it was an absolute champ. Do you run an antigel fuel additive? I highly suggest it

Its saved my truck dozens of times this winter, the one time i didnt use it my fresh fuel filter plugged up from all the gel and the truck stalled out. (-9* F)

I started at -5 the other day after it sitting for 15 hours while i moved snow in a skid steer. she popped right off, bucked for like 3 seconds, then smoothed right out. Let it warm up for 10 min then off I went. I'm using T6 5w-40 and revx was added when I changed the oil 1000 miles ago.
