Well, just to let you know I live in Southern Manitoba. It has been really cold here this winter (as some may already know). Well yesterday, my thermostat readout on that little module thingy on the dash would not read the temperature below -30 C (-22 F). It defaulted with lines across the screen. Anyhow, I do not know if any of you have experienced that before but I laughed my ass off. So just to let you all know, your computer will not read below that temperature unless my particular Altima is sensitive to those temperatures :bawl:. I am just glad I could help in discovering the Altima's limitations, in regards to temperature read-out. Not to mention all the fluids (steering, transmition, brake etc.) made the car drive like a tank! :angry3: It still drove though... I tell ya, I cannot wait to get out of here!

Take care...

- Nic

Love those -30C days. It'll take the auto transmission 2-3 sec more to lock to the gears. Brakes doesn't really work. You'll need both hands to get the steering going.

No to mention the cold leather actuall can burn your ass and scrapping ice off all the windows.

Holy frozen testes batman. thats really cold. do you plug your engine block in at night? and i thought it was cold in vermont. I went to alaska once it was cold there up in the artic circle. very cold, and all the parking lots had lil posts w/ 2 plugs on each side to plug the cars into in the winter.

NO worries guys I have a block heater, same with unleaded...plus I have a battery warmer...lol and an automatic car starter... I am prepared. No worries there. Unleaded... it has dropped down to -55 C (-67 F) with the windshield here! lol. Anyhow I still have all my "parts" and the car is still kicking. Just thought I would let you know the limitations on the "cold end" of the spectrum.

Take care...

for sure - the car starter was the first mod i made - first week i had the car! i have a battery blanket too, just haven't had time lately to install. even if i wanted to my garage isn't heated so i would have to wait until it warmed up anyway. yeah, last night was crazy cold with the wind.

you have to let the car warm up pretty good - i started out cold one day; it took a few miles for it to shift from 3rd to 4th because the tranny fluid was so cold.
