'06 VERY loud on startup in morning..
I have remote start on my truck. I start it up in the morn when I take my dog out, so I can hear it start. Typically, I let the glow plugs cycle twice, and let it start after the second cycle. This morning, with the temp around 15 degrees, it started with such a racket that I almost dropped the dogs leash and ran over to shut it down. But after a couple seconds, it settled down and ran with no problems the rest of the morning, as it has every morn since I got it.
I have noticed on a few other occasions that it was more noisy than other days, but today was a bit shocking.
I have a heater cord, and will be putting it on soon, but when, i don't know. It has been COLD here, and with the snow and slush, my truck is a mess, and i am assuming the underneath is in no better shape. Since I can't get it into my garage, and its about 20 when I get home, the last thing I want to do is lay in the ice and snow and try to route a heater cord with frozen hands. I'll have to wait till it warms up a bit.
