Hi there, this will be my first winter with a Diesel and i have a few questions for people who live in colder climates. I live in southern Ontario and I may not see extended cold days like Alberta we do however see a few days in the -30 degree Celsius. just today we hit -17 with the windchill. I have started using my block heater the other day and plugged it in for 3 hours before i had to leave for work, yet the instrument panel still said 0degress for my trans temp and the minimum of 40 for my coolant and 40 for oil when i started my truck. Am i plugging into the wrong plug? (near the tow hook on passenger side) also i just went to plug it in just a few minutes ago after my shift and stupid me forgot to unplug the extension cord before plugging into the block heater cord and a few sparks came off the connector, do you think i fried the block heater? and is there a way to check? its a 2016 3500. also is there any other advise anyone could share about winter climates for my diesel? like how low should my oil kpa be before i put the truck in gear or anything like that. thank you so much this forum is very helpful.
