Every day is an opportunity to learn something new.

Hello.

I'm the new guy for today.

Just bought my first diesel a couple weeks back (see sig). Doing so many searches for different questions, and since most of them answers I liked came from this forum, I thought I would register and join the discussion.

Today I learned something new.

It wont fit in the garage, and it needs warmed up in this weather. But if its covered in snow, (particularly the windshield), get all the way in, and shut the door before giving it that 'warm up' start.

Otherwise, all the snow from your windshield will end up in your driver's door cubbies.

Glad to have you - to the ORG!

If you're interested, there is an ORG Chapter for Illinois/Indiana members:
Illiana Strokers - Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

Good info to pass on. I'm not in the snow all that often, but have been occasionally.

Thanks for the welcome!


I suppose I could have made sure the wipers were off, or brushed off the window first. But then I wouldn't have learned anything. heh
