Just purchased a 2006 New Beetle tdi with 36,ooo miles on her. I live in Iowa with temps dropping to 0 to 10deg below am wondering how she will start this winter? Any previous experience and suggestiions will be greatly appreciated.
Some power service winter additive will help it start easier. A frostheater engine block heater will help. Don't bother looking for the freeze plugs or using an oil pan heater - they don't work/no freeze plugs.
Some new glow plugs will work better but 36,000 miles is nothing. Congrats on the new car!
