    Beh insomma non c’è da lamentarsi: considerata l’età ed i km percorsi credo tu possa ritenerti soddisfatto. Hai cambiato le candelette giusto? Hai utilizzato il gasolio invernale? E l’additivo antigelo tipo STP lo hai provato? Forse migliorerebbe ulteriormente

    @Golfettone1 Si, candelette nuove, cambiate un mese prima, gasolio antigelo , non credo occorrano altri additivi perchè ho fatto gasolio a Samedan, e lassu’ il gasolio è additivato per non congelare fino a -40° Mi ritengo comunque soddisfatto, penso che qualche difficoltà l’ho avuta perchè la batteria , pur essendo una Optima rossa, non è di amperaggio adeguato . Due anni fa ero per l’appunto a Samedan ed è partita al primo colpo , quella notte la temperatura era scesa a -30°….

    @nerodichina11 gasolio fino a -40? Dovrebbe essere quello artico, perchè quello invernale protegge fino a -20 se ricordo bene. Ad ogni modo io utilizzo gasolio invernale ma poi ci piazzo sempre l’STP antigelo. Certo che a -30 la vedo proprio dura anche per un diesel, direi complimentoni alla Tua macchina!

    I went to school in Fredericton, New Brunswick (Canada). Try starting a cavalier in -45C weather! 1/3 the cars in the parking lot didn’t start that day. Mine came through!

    If a dangerous man chased you with a gun and you tried to escape in that but it happened to be cold, you would have been wasted lol. 4.0 all the way. diesels cool too tho.

    You know if you held the key longer it -would- have started. It has to build up some heat from compression in those temperatures. Both of the first attempts you could hear it getting faster yet you let off the key…

  17. nerodichina11 September 3, 2010 at 4:50 pm #

    No, it’s a VM 2500 Turbodiesel engine

    @ultimatefighterispro The engine won’t care, it’s the starter you should worry about, and an extra few seconds wouldn’t have mattered. I’ve seen cars cranked hard whose starters last years and years. You end up using it longer overall by stopping when it’s almost started. Most of the heat disappears and you have to build it up again =)
