-20C in Ontario today and I really wanted to see if the 6.5 would start. Sure enough she did and it wasn’t that bad. I drive to work, not a problem. Get off work, now getting it started after work -36c with wind chill, was hard. But she fired up and I let it idle for a few mins then started the drive home. No heat from the heater, even though it was up to temp. A few mins later temp starts climbing to 100C, then past! I pulled over quick and turned the motor off. I started it back up 10-15 mins later and limped it to a gas station, waited another 20 mins then got it home without it over heating again. Expansion tank was full to the brim, I pulled the rad cap once it cooled down and it was half empty, and low coolant light was flashing on the last leg of the way home. Not sure what’s going on but I hope I didn’t crack the head. It got to at least 110c maybe 112c and I know 6.5’s don’t like anything past 100c.
