Yeah Sure, laugh at my clothing. You would wear black sweatclothes if you were cold too, lol.


She talks to the camera a little when she starts, hear that?

I've got the new set to put in it, and it doesn't hurt one thing to not wait (when it's warm out of course) I made the video really to prove a point to someone I know that the PSD will start without waiting, even down to 16 degrees, and yes it was hard on it.


My block heater fried a circuit in the house, and hasn't been used since (nearly burnt the house down)

To add to that..

If it's 40 degrees or warmer, I don't bother waiting to start, (starts normally, not like the video) been doing it this way since 2004 when I realized the glowplugs stay on for x amount of time after the engine starts. I asked around and others confirmed.
