Hello
Your Land Cruier should pre-heat its self with the glow plug light on the dash board.

The frist thing to check is the glow plugs to make sure that all 8 are working you will have to remove them to test them one at a time,
As you will propley find out at least 3 or 4 glow plugs are down.

The idle up is just to lift the revs in the engine for jump starting or running other items on the car ie carvan,trailer.

As it will only lift the revs buy 200-400 RPMs this will have nothing to do with your pre-heat on the Jeep.

If you still have any problems please contact me

My 2012 Kia Sedona has a rough idol and wants to stop running at stop signs. The check engine light come on. It is about -30 degrees outside could that be the issue.


emissions tend to freeze up in cold weather.. some folks block the extremely cold air up front with a disposable cardboard sheet.. this allows the motor to run warmer..you may need to do this..some cars have a space betweenthe radiator and the ac condenser to slide a sheet in there..otherwise it goes in front of the grille..

I have a 1996 dodge caravan that starts hard in cold weather!


Cold weather has an adverse affect on batteries. The clicking sound could be from the starter solenoid not receiving enough voltage to energize the starter motor. The engine being hesitant to start and run could indicate the need of new spark plugs, wires, etc.

Starting in damp weather 1993 240 wagon, auto/od, 235k miles


perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
