2011 LML cold start (15 F)

I had an unusually cold morning and decided to video the engine start after two days of sitting out in cold weather, and an over night cold soak at well below freezing... sure, this ain't Ottawa in January, but cold it was!

yea i would trade a truck with a minor problem for one with turbo issues and cylinder wash down..... wayyyyyy better decision

Easy if thats all you feel like posting in the duramax forums, dont do it at all, its helps no one and aggravates everyone

That thing is way too quiet 747, Im used to mine firing up and rumbling and whistling I noticed that your engine isnt a whole lot quieter than mine when it idles up

yeah, it's quiet, but at 1000rpm idle up, it's a bit of a noise machine...wife always *****es at me about it waking her up when I go early in the Morning..

As for trading it in, yeah... urea issue is a non-issue... GM will have a fix soon, and it's something that is going to be an issue for ALL 2011 and newer trucks / diesels anyway.... freezing temp is the problem, they need to come up with an additive or another solution to keep it from freezing.
