The Electronic Control Module (ECM) will automatically provide the correct amount of fuel that is necessary to start the engine. The throttle should not be held while the engine is being cranked. If the engine fails to start in 30 seconds, the starter switch should be released. The motor for the starter should be allowed to cool for two minutes before being used again.
Excessive ether (starting fluid) can cause piston and ring damage. Use ether for cold weather starting purposes only.
Cold Mode Operation
The ECM will set the cold start strategy when the coolant temperature is below 18 °C (64 °F).When the cold start strategy is activated, low idle rpm will be increased to 1000 rpm and engine power will be limited.Cold mode operation will be deactivated when any of the following conditions have been met:
Coolant temperature reaches 18 °C (64 °F).
The engine has been running for fourteen minutes.Cold mode operation varies the fuel injection amount for white smoke cleanup. Cold mode operation also varies the timing for white smoke cleanup. The engine operating temperature is usually reached before the walk-around inspection is completed.After the cold mode is completed, the engine should be operated at low rpm until normal operating temperature is reached. The engine will reach normal operating temperature faster when the engine is operated at low rpm and low power demand.Customer Specified Parameters
The engine is capable of being programmed for several customer specified parameters. For a brief explanation of each of the customer specified parameters, see the Operation and Maintenance Manual.
