Cold weather

It has been a mild winter for me so far, but it now is starting to get cold.

Is their any thing I should do?

I have been reading about the oil change for winter, what do you guys think?

I run Rotella Synthetic 5w40 year round, and used to run Rotella 15w40 when the truck was newer. Hands down the 5w40 starts way easier. I don't care what the temps are outside, my truck cranks right up. That's good to know, because we have more snow and sub zero temps heading this way.

Other than oil, just making sure that glow plugs are healthy and working correctly is a biggie.

Beyond that, just drive the truck like normal. Take it easy until it warms up to normal temps, then have your fun.
