Preparing for winter

Good day. That, too, is winter in Crimea. Let not the Siberian, but felt differently. And the temperature in small quantitative values ​​of very high quality is reflected in our lives because of climate characteristics. Cold, wind, ice and beautiful snowy landscapes of mountain Crimea.

Operating diesel in cold weather leaves its negative impact. Starting a cold engine, the slow warming. This is problematic moments, but only for those who are not prepared. This is my second diesel car, so many subtleties I experienced firsthand, know even more in theory. Let's start.

So fuel. Russia is famous for its hideous quality of gasoline and diesel fuel. If gasoline starting temperature is not so important, the summer diesel fuel at near-zero temperatures loses fluidity and run motor is hindered. And at lower, so in general, you can fall paraffin. It is well to score the filter element, mesh and fuel lines that will automatically postpone a trip to warmer times, or at least dance with boiling water. Yes, there is a winter diesel fuel, the Arctic, and so on. But, as stated above, the quality of fuel available to ordinary people, in tears. And when it comes to the Crimea, a warm corner of our great country, it is supplied to the fuel frankly poor quality. Studio Flat "winter" freezes at -5. Gasoline clogs injectors, nozzles. In general, there are a number of problems. With that I encountered in the operation of Cadette, diesel grab even antifreeze froze at -25 (yes, antifreeze, we also appropriate, though I'm not spare on this). Ever since that time, in the winter I use Antigel by the manufacturer Hi-Gear . Money for advertising I did not pay, others simply are not used, there was no need. I can not say anything for competitors. In the same winter, after reading advice of more experienced technician, decided, in addition to Antigel add 2T oil.

Cocktail for grandpa

refueled on the proven place was confirmed. It was necessary to fill up "on the road", filled 10l. As a result, my diesel refused to digest it, somehow with gaps in cylinders held up to the normal refueling. I clarify that my tractor engine has inline fuel equipment, pre-chamber (prechamber), separator, mechanical injectors and generally very undemanding and resistant to failure. Thus, formed a cocktail. The respective proportions fill the tank before refueling. ANTIGEL proportions, based on the recommendations from the manufacturer, 1 g per 1 liter of fuel (1/1000). Oil Eni (Italy) 2T synthetic for scooters, the proportion of 5 g per 1 liter of fuel (1/200). The miracle did not happen, but the engine runs smoother, noticeably softer. The oil was, whether Antigel but lubricated pump fuel. Winter diesel fuel is more "dry" worse lubricates plunger assemblies. And, separately, follow the state of the separator, if any. If not - set. Water kills fuel equipment. So, like the years of its equipment -. Watch out for fuel, especially in winter
The second step for a confident start in the cold is preheating. At Yamato installed a two-stage heating system. First on the candles served 24V on-board network, after the launch voltage gradually drops to 14. Voltage is divided between the resistors and glow plugs in the intake manifold. The system has a temperature sensor, which disables the preheating system upon reaching a certain temperature. So, this system I have excellent way zakolhozhena previous owner due to breakage. Candles were Champion 14V, powered by battery 1 in the gap, run with a button. Hence, a difficult start, shaking the cold (until all the cylinders do not turn on), the category and the murder of one of the battery. Winter has arrived, so the situation, I decided to install the original 24V Glow plugs from a simple preheating system. He left on the button and connect to 24V. Plans return to the system serial two-stage system. Putting himself decided. Were ordered candles ( Denso DG -219) Denso , they are also original, caps ( Toyota 90189-04024) and high-temperature grease for glow plugs and ignition ( VMPAuto 1920).

The engine compartment is clean dirty caps. So far.

The results of these steps, I am very satisfied. -8 The machine starts with a half-spear as on goryachuyu.Kogda without these actions already under five were twitching. Now, no hint of omissions, the motor hums softly. Beauty, like the young. Duplicate-desks nambery:
