I've also heard that keeping the intervals within spec (or earlier) is better. Also not rat-bagging your car will help. But, in the end, it may just be a roll of the dice as to whether yours fails or not. It's a known issue, but I don't think it's THAT common. Like I don't think your odds are 50/50 or anything nearly that grim.

Not even sure if -40 degrees is cold anymore ?
