How-to #16: Warming Up Your Diesel Truck Fast

As winter approaches, the mornings get colder and our vehicles require more time to warm up. Diesels don't warm up very quickly at normal idle speed. One way to speed up the process is by idling the engine at a higher RPM.

If you have a 2005-2007 Ford Super Duty truck with the Powerstroke diesel engine and upfitter switches, you can perform a simple modification that will allow you to increase the idle speed at the flip of a switch, dramatically shortening warm-up time, and quickly providing a comfortably heated cabin your passengers will thank you for.
