Up in Canada land here we are getting into some colder weather. This is my first winter with the truck and it seems to have, what I'm assuming, is some stiction. Mainly coming from one injector.
Prior to this weekend, it was running regular dino oil, castrol 15w40 I believe. No conditioners in the fuel, etc.
When starting, one cylinder would not fire for the first 5 to 10 seconds when cold, but then would pick up. I can hear a distinctive tick noise when running, which I'm assuming is some stiction noise?
Well anyhoo, this weekend I did a new set of fuel filters, oil filter, Rotella T6 5w40, and an accessory belt. When I first started it up (it was in a warm shop) it fired up first time every time, and ran noticeably smoother and quieter.
I drove it home, double checked my oil level, no leaks, all was good.
This morning, it was -11 Celsius (12 Fahrenheit), and when I went to start it, it would fire then die. It did that 3 times, just fire up, but die out right away.
On the 4th time, I gave it a bit of throttle and it stayed running, but ran like a bag of POOP. At least 2 cylinders were not participating for the first 10 seconds, then it smoother out to just 1 cylinder, then it finally picked up for a total of about 15 to 20 seconds.
Over the weekend, I put in a full tank added in some CRC fuel anti gel (see link here
, and a 16 oz bottle of 2 stroke oil.
Is there anything I should be starting with? There was no check engine light.
I do have an archoil kit here, that I plan to add in, I was just hoping to do it all in stages so I could post up some better findings rather than switching it all at once.
