Here is some van content after all, a couple years ago I started my van
in -8 temps and left it to warm up, while getting ready I noticed a spot
coming from the back. It was motor oil and about 2 quarts was pouring from
the engine area. It turned out that the oil cooler gasket had broken from
the cold/pressure. It was an easy fix, and I'm glad it happened before I
had traveled anywhere. So the moral of the story ~ be careful with your
vans at these temps, especially check that gasket.
Quite common occurrence up here in the North country. Just had a customer
from NYC last week and he found out real quick what -30 C does to a Vanagon
Syncro Westy from California landing in Ottawa. Blew the oil cooler seal and
the coolant distributor.
