Idling for extended periods of time in the cold is bad. You might think about switching to synthetic oil, if you want the best protection as well as using your block heater.

look into getting your high idle hooked up but either way with emissions still on there its not good to idle

It seams to me that the new diesel are take the cold a hell of a lot better the the the older ones. Hell the 6.7 don't even need glow plugs they fire right up without waiting even at 10*f..

They have glow plugs, insta plugs, it takes them 2 seconds to reach temp, hence the 3 second delay in the remote start. There is an indicator on dash.

6.7 takes a while to get up to operating temp and you really need to drive it to get there faster. Really I would get some heat in the motor and go. I have a 6L. If its not plugged in I wait until the 50s/60s to take off and just stay easy on it. Waiting for 100 takes a bit.

Just take off when she has some heat and be easy on here. If you are running a syn you will have a better time with it as well. Are you runing a 10/30 oil now?

They way I do it is just like I did my 6.0. I will start it with remote start and let it idle for a little bit (max 5 min) then I will get in and drive it down the road. The only thing is I don't let the RPM's get over 1800 while I am getting up to highway speed. Then I set the cruise.

I have supplemental heat in my cab, and even when I remote start the engine it still takes a good 5 minutes to start to feel any heat. I know the supp heat is supposed to work right away, but mine don't. I also hear that the remote start will shut down after ten minutes if you don't get in it and go, is that right?
