That's usually when I call the boss and say I'm not coming in... anything colder than about -20 (f). As I side note: last time I did that, I got a pretend-hard time from the boss - "Yeah...Swedish car, wouldn't start in the winter because it was _cold_". My response, of course, was "It *didn't* start, not *wouldn't* start. I *didn't* go outside to try it", which went over about as well as one would expect.

I don't have a block heater.... I think that's your answer there. Something is shrinking in the extreme cold temperature, making your oil pressure high enough to cause damage. Keep the engine warm(er) with a block heater, and the engine, the oil, and your battery, will be happier. Dave Hinz
