Re: Strange E4OD Issue
How cold we talkin? It's snowing as we speak and abount 15 deg. F with a windchill of around zero up here.
What do you have for a truck? Any info?
EVERY diesel truck has power/trans "problems" when cold... Your injectors are actuated by oil and when it's cold the oil is thicker than molasses in January. It takes time for it to heat up.
The trans is the same way. It wants to warm the engine up first by locking the TC
and engaging direct drive within the trans.
What you're experiencing is normal as far as cold weather operation as far as I'm concerned...
