Cold morning start

It's -10*C outside (14*F). This is a short video of my truck strating in the morning. I would like to compare my morning start with the start of others.
Not sure of video attachment, but here it is.

How do I insert this short video into my message without it routing to photo bucket?

Anyone else have cold start videos that they would like to show us? I am sure if you do have issues we can help if not we can compare with our own cold starts.

I've always heard replace them in pairs. Either way batteries are cheap compared to the headache of burning up a FICM.


Here is mine...

You need to change the delay on your remote start!! The glow plugs had not even finished their cycle yet. Anyway, here is my video with a bad FICM last year.
