In Gunbarrel, the plant is experiencing "low gas pressure" which is preventing the boilers from operating. I'm curious to see how cold it gets inside the buildings before Excel can put more pressure in the pipes.

I've also had the same issue on 3rd gen runners- it's downright scary you roll up to that first stop and the pedal is rock hard, and no braking! Most likely just some water in the brake fluid that's freezing...

My '98 4Runner brakes were sorta 'stuck' this AM, too - this happens at super low temps every year. It's a 3rd gen thing, I guess. I stopped trying to find a solution for it.

80's battery was dead as a stone at DIA last night. Got a jump from the parking guys to get home around 10pm. Also, the driver's window regulator was really grumpy last night. The window would barely go down for me to pay at the parking booth, and I then had to gently lift it back up manually. (Stupid me for trying to lower it anyway; wasn't thinking.) Once on the road it was a frosty ride back to Evergreen. The heater works fine but my side windows froze over from the condensation from the warmth in the truck.

Had to go to Napa this AM for a fresh battery, but hopefully that will be all.

I have never enjoyed my seat heaters in the 80 as much as the last few days!!!

No problems here yet, I should probably have my dad check the 40 to see if the block cracked. That thing seems to start better in cold weather anyway.

With any luck, some pine beetles froze to death last night.
It was about that cold down here if Fountain. Gear box and clutch felt like they were in wet cement, but luckily the 40 started right up. I could see my breath in the cab all the way up to Ft. Collins with the heater on. Time to get that rebuild kit and new rubbers around all the doors.

Same happened in my 2000. Left at the airport Mon -Fri. Just left the parking pay booth and I went into safe mode. Pulled over and sat in the sun while the truck warmed up. After about 15 minutes of waiting and starting and stopping the gas pedal returned to normal and I drove on home. Code reader read P1120. So far this weekend no more issues.
