Some Factors Affecting Starting of Cars At -10 F 660542
The effects of oil viscosity, fuel vapor pressure and, to a much lesser extent battery capacity, automatic choke setting, and starting procedure on the starting ability of four cars equipped with small engines were investigated at-10F. Oil viscosity and fuel vapor pressure were shown to be major factors in low temperature starting. A “start but not run” phenomenon was experienced in all cars.
