Diesel in cold weather now needs to be warmed before it will fire
I’ve had this car for years with little trouble. It’s the last year before I replace her, but she’s stopped starting in cold weather only a few months before I have the money for a new car. I can get her started by pointing a fan heater at the engine block for five-ten min, but it’s not ideal.
The engine turns over very well. But could the cold be zapping some of the battery power preventing the warming of the engine?
Is this a good question?
