Dad had a first gen 85 dodge caravan with the Mitsubishi 2.6L motor where fuel would freeze before it hit the carb on cold days. Park on the side of the freeway for a few and it would restart. Before we could figure the pattern I would have to go rescue him with my 83 Fuego, and if I had been a good boy Momís 85 Park Ave. Cardboard didnít really help, but we tried it.
All those cars were new back then. Havenít had a car hate cold weather like that minivan since. That was in Michigan. The X5d doesnít balk at Sierra snow cold. Sierra snow cold is nothing like the Midwest cold over the past week, but the X5 just goes.
