So, I started my truck this morning, and it ran for 15-20 minutes. The temperature was -5*F with a windchill of around -40*F. I went back out and the truck was off. The truck will start, but it will run for about 3 min. max before it shuts off. The check engine light is not on, but the Air Dog is currently not turning on- . Currently the water in the seperator is frozen solid, and I have been putting #2 diesel in the truck with Power Service additive whenever I filled up. I currently still have 3/4 of a tank of fuel left.

I am out of ideas at this point, and it is way to cold outside to be playing around. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Where the heck are you at for -5 in Colorado, Grand Valley? Your best bet is getting it inside to thaw out.

Glad to hear you got it running again (even with it being a simple ground wire).

It was pretty cold out, so it just eing a ground wire was REALLY nice.
