Vehicles like cars and trucks, when in winter, their engine can be very difficult to start because of the cold start issue.

There is two reason why the engines can’t get start normally at low temperature.

When shutting down the engine for a long time, the lubricating oil can only remain at the bottom of the oil sump due to the earth gravity.

When in winter at low temperature, the lubricating oil fluidity will deteriorate, or sometimes even freeze up.

Therefore, when trying to start the engine again, it’s hard for the fuel pump to transfer the lubricating oil back to each lubrication spot.

Moreover, increasing resistance of the piston occurs because the small amount of oil existing between the piston and the cylinder also solidifies.

In this way, the starter may not drive the engine to start normally.

Even if started, the engine wears a lot without lubrication protection.

There is a large contact surface with lubricating oil between the engine piston and the cylinder wall.

It allows the starter to drive the piston to work smoothly.

When the temperature drops to low, the viscosity of the lubricating oil will increase, which will greatly increase the piston resistance.

The engine must be heated and the cylinder must be maintained to the proper temperature, so the lubricating oil melts and the starter can work normally.

Due to the shrinkage effect, the matching gap between the engine parts will become larger, resulting in poor air tightness and incomplete vaporization of the fuel.

Some fuel will just be burnt and discharged into the air. That does much harm to the environment. And some fuel will stick to the cylinder wall.

Due to the continuous movement of the piston, the fuel will clean the little remaining lubricating oil away from the cylinder wall.

Without protection from the lubricating oil, the cylinder wall and piston will be in the extreme wear.

This is just the main reason for the high failure rate of vehicles in winter.

Diesel engine heater also called as a water heater or liquid parking heater is a kind of heater device that transfers the heat to the engine or other equipment through coolant or other liquid.

It consumes diesel or gasoline.

The coolant heater allows the truck engine or other equipment to be maintained at the proper temperature for a long time.
