When expecting really, really cold weather like we have now<g>:
1. Adjust the valves; 2. New battery; 3. Test glow plugs (just make sure all 5
work); 4. Use 0w40 Mobil 1. 5. Add 10% gasoline or 30-50% kerosene to your fuel
to make sure it does not gel.
1. Glow longer than the light suggests (watch til the battery light brightens
to see when the glow timer actually turns off the plugs, then turn the key off
and back on to glow again; Crank the engine without touching the accelerator
until you hear the engine make firing sounds, then SLIGHT pedal movement.3. DO
NOT make repeated starting attempts- crank til it starts. You only get one try.
