Ford 2008 F-350 remote starts great in warm weather will not start in cold. all lights glow plugs ect working just wont start truck and only if 35 degrees and below.

Since batteries lose almost half their cranking power at freezing, and since diesels require much higher fuel temps to start than gasoline engines, many recommend using a block heater whenever the temperature is under 35-40 degrees if starting becomes a problem.

? does my Mazda CX-7 have a block heater?

Rarely do cars come with a block heater unless someone like the dealer installed it.

If you have one, it would look like an electrical plug like the one on a table lamp or toaster. It would likely be out of harms way but findable and accessible, maybe even poking through the front grill of the car.

Engine warning light say "engine over heating" and heater blows only cold air and the vehicle looses speed

Loosing power is probably the computer trying to protect the engine from damage. The actual problem could be low coolant or a problem with the water pump.

I have a 1991 nissan pickup. The engine started getting hot, as i was driving it lost power and eventually shut off. I didnt see any water leaking so I checked the oil and antifreeze was in the oil. Now it...

I would really be concerned about the antifreeze in oil, sounds like head gasket at least or head, block problem, even if you dont see antifreeze leaking, the engine can burn it and exit through tail pipe-white smoke or steam (beyond just cold start-up)

My charade is hard to start, what should i do,... some people say that it has a heater. is it true??

If you are refering to the BLOCK heater, maybe. Delpends on how cold it is there. The passenger area heater would have zero to do with starting.

When weather gets below -15 C, truck has a hard time to start almost like no gas. After it turns over several time it will finaly start.

Make sure you use synthetic oil with a low viscosity,and if you do not have a garage, get a block heater to prevent these dry starts that are potentially damaging.

89 merc tracer blows cold air brrrrrrr

I would recommend flushing the heater core with water thru the coolant line, then blowing compressed air thru it also. And when you refill the coolant, make sure there is no air in the system.I would also recommend replacing the thermostat if you have the time and the money and the knowledge to do so
