New to Diesels cool start ? (w/ video)

New to diesels and what I thought was "normal" may not be normal after some reading. I made this video, truck sat over night, not plugged in, temp was high 30*F.


Let me know if this is abnormal. right now i have rotella 15w-40, gonna switch to T6 on the next oil change, about 500 miles to go.

I've got a couple more videos at various outdoor air temps.

Mid 40*F not plugged in overnight:

Thanks guys.

In my short experience I usually wait another 5-6s after the GlowPlug light goes out to crank it over. It seems pretty normal in the second video just don't be so ambitious

Nothing wrong with either. The injectors will be noisier the colder it gets. It didn't sound like it was missing. A quicker fire up would have been ideal, but it has to build pressure first. At those temperatures there is no need to plug it in.

i asked a couple guys at work what temps they suggest plugging one in at, and the general answer was that plugging one in when it drops below freezing helps significantly.

im running rotella 15W-40 right now, and your starts sound normal to me. im debating switching to 5W-40 T6 before december. the coldest it gets around here is usually the mid teens around december-january, although we saw single digits last january. i have 2k to go on this oil....i hate to change it early but i may go ahead. i plan on 15W-40 for summer and 5W-40 in winter.

The best thing you can do is watch the cranking voltage, and ficm. Less than 10v is not good. It sounds a little slow to me, but check those voltages.

I'll watch battery voltage tomorrow. I do not believe the edge evolution shows fimc voltage. Unless I'm missing something...

I'm not an expert mechanic by any means but in the second video it sounds like the engine is starving for oil at start up (for 1-2 seconds) so my question is... you used the original fl-2016 oil filter or an aftermarket one? As I said is just a guess. Keep us informed.

I'll get a vid of mine tomorrow morning. Temps will be high 30s and I won't plug it in. I'm running T6 with Rev-x and a brand new BPD FICM. I will use my remote start to ensure that the plugs are running for exactly 30 seconds prior to the start.
