cold weather tips? moving to Ottawa area
I have had a wonderful 1984 300D mercedes for the past year and a half. It's got about 300,000K on it. Just got new all weather tires, new battery, and everything seems to be working great.
It's always been on the west coast, however (I live in the Pacific Northwest). And I'm moving in January to the Ottawa-Gatineau area of ON/QU. Temps there are often around -20 C and down to -40 periodically.
I'm trying to decide whether or not to bring my car. I'd like to if possible, as especially once the weather is better, I'll want it for little trips etc. But I don't know how it will do in these cold temps. Will it start? I know I'll probably need to plug it in and maybe get a battery warmer. But does anyone have any good experience / knowledge about these things that they might share with me?
