Engine compartment loud moans and groans @-24C
I know there are many areas of Canada and USA who experience these very cold temps in the winter. Although there was very little I could do the Compass did start but I did not like to hear all that moaning and groaning of whatever was making that orchestra of noises under the hood. I let it warm up for 3 min before moving. I do have synthetic oil in this 5w20 as well for the winter. But surely these must be designed for even colder temperatures than this.
I am sure this has the cold weather package as there is a block heater in this North Edition. But leaving it on all night will cause other problems and or damage to the coolant getting too hot. I never seen one that was thermostatically controlled and I have seen some people who've burned their fluid due to extended plugin times of their block heater. I am not setup to plug in safely here with an extension cord out to the street area.
With this extreme cold there may be others experiencing this noise.
