Re: Whats too cold for the SRT8

hey Tilla are you using a 0-x weight OIL? that might help/

out here in CO it dont get cold often but it gets way colder than NYC the avg low at night for right now is 15 while the avg high is 43.

anyway, for the wionter in MY DD XK 4.0L I use 0/30 for these relly cold months and it starts noticeably easier. of course a block heater, battery blanket, battery tender would all help you as well.

remember your srt8 isnt the first gasoline combustion engine made. they deal with cold rather well if you tend to the oil and battery and fluids,. give it time to warn up etc.

Re: Whats too cold for the SRT8

ive had my srt8 in the fargo area for a winter and now a half of a winter and ive never had anything change whether it was 95 degrees outside and humid as a mofo or just last week it was -36...it wasnt the windchill either. the windchill was -60. she was in the garage most of the time, but i did have to run into town, and it fired right up. i dont think cold weather really affects an srt anymore than a standard wk or any other jeep for that matter. i run the 0w 40 royal purple and never had a hard start in the cold Minnesota temps.

cheers rob, im a hawk on the fluids constantly, maybe i should look into the battery blanket and etc for future long hauls. on saturday i was going to take my 5.7 limited instead of the beast but i didnt want to unload everything twice, soo i kept the beast out on the road instead. its these times i loved winging out my old ZJ up there-- RIP*

hold on there were more before me?? j/k- oh and i know this isnt the first im just very cautious with her ya know how i am. ill ask the questions that people dont ask about on a seldom rate i wanted to hear from owners like you, in your always cold areas. it can never hurt to pose the question. cheers bro

ok i thought maybe somebody might perceive this thread a bit in the opposite direction...thats cool though, afterall this is the internet

the point of this thread wasnt "oh man its cold" oh nooooz" however i do hear all of you's though.

my point was to get to get a sense of whats too cold for start ups, whats too cold for oil pressure etc...whats your artic measures...whats too cold for SRT engineering in general....

i know its colder everywhere but ny all the time. is why i wanted to pose the thread in the SRT8 section rather than the good old sections. i wanted to hear from the rockies to canada and abroad.

cheers fellas

Re: Whats too cold for the SRT8

I have a CRD and its been as low as -40 C or -40 f for that matter up here in northern Alberta. I had forgotten to plug in my block heater one day, but it still fired up no problem. A little rough but still no problems

Re: Whats too cold for the SRT8

On really cold days I leave the jeep in the driveway and take the dog sled.

Re: Whats too cold for the SRT8

Um I have 2 fireplaces in my garage so I don't have those issues. LOL I was actually in LA this past weekend. On the red eye home Sunday the pilot announced it was 7 degrees in NY I almost had a seizure.
