Re: How long to start 3.0 CRD

I have a 2008.5 CRD. And it gets pretty damn cold in Calgary. About the same temperature as you state. the manual says you should plug it in (block heater) whenever is gets below freezing... I do that and have had no issues like you are mentioning. I turn the key to on, watch the glow plug icon light and when it extiguishes, I start her up. The only times (x3) it has ever taken more than a few seconds to start, it threw a code... and the engine was hot.

I have never plugged my 08.5 in. I am trying to see just how cold it can get for starting issues. So far here in Ontario Canada the coldest day which was around -45 with windchill it started just fine, now my transport it had a problem starting that day.
