Ford Fiesta Mk3 very cold start at -45C
Ignition action starts at 1:30
* I started my Ford fiesta 1.3 from 92 after 3 days in really cold weather.
Temperature with wind chill factor was -45C at that beautiful morning .
Video is long because i decided to warm up the battery first a little and
had no time to cut the video. No gas pedal, only clutch pedal down, because
the liquids were really thick and i didnt want to float the engine
Audi A6 2.5tdi AEL cold start -26C°
Starting car after standing 24 hours in -30 degrees. Before start the car
was plugged in about 1 hour. The battery voltage went so low that Boostgauge changes color :) It does so if the
voltage drops. Also the plugs didn't glow because the water temperature was
over +2C :)
-29C degrees cold start LADA
It was really -29* when i tried to start engine of my lada samara(1500 ccm,
A battery was fully loaded at home yesterday, and me and my wife rided to
our parents something like 20 kilometers on the streets of
StPetersburg,Russia. It was 1,5 hours before we achieved parents house and
i stopped engine, Jam everywhere!
And night was cold and there was 29 degrees of cold by celsius. And morning
begins! At first i tryed to fully pull the choke lever and start engine.
There was little rpm - motor oil was too cold and sticky, starter can`t
At the second i turn on the light to make little load to battery, to warm
it up and mix the electrolite inside.
At the third i turn on the starter and motor reluctantly maked flashes, and
more and more!

BMW X3 E83 Cold Start -32
-32C. Bmw x3 3.0d e83 with Webasto !
I made two more videos to show that car starts now perfectly and I will add
another one as soon as the temperature will drop. Reason why car didn't
start in this video is because 3 of 6 glow plugs were not working.
Я снял ещё два видео, чтобы показать, что
машина заводится сейчас отлично.
Причина, по которой машина не заводилась
в этом видео, в том, что 3 из 6 свечей
накаливания не работали.
Arctic cat diesel cold start -25C
I found another cold start video that i made last winter but forgot to
upload, in this one the throttle isn't stuck frozen as in the previous
video, so the engine is easier to start if i give it a bit throttle, this
engine does not have any kind of cold start device that advances the timing
or increases the throttle when cold, so that's why it's hard to start
without additional throttle, and as soon as i let it go back to idle too
quickly when cold, it will stall, that's because the governor is not fast
enough to "meet up" the RPM drip.
This is a prechamber-diesel, so it would never start without a pre-glow
like a direct injected diesel can do. but it did only need one pre-glow
cycle, so it will probably start in even colder temperatures with several
the squeeking noise is the CVT fan motor that has bad bearings.

6.2 Diesel Cold Start
Starting my '87 Chevy after 3 Years.
Hearing that old Detroit roar to life was like talking to a long-lost
friend. Now I need to find an El Camino to stuff this boat anchor into!
Thanks to 1997cr80r for the suggestion
