Hi Guys...Well, I got my Blazer to start this morning. The carb was full of gas, so I took it off, cleaned it out, and re-installed it. I have a 350 and 10w30 oil. When it's really cold, the motor will turn over really slowly because of the thick oil and the carb will flood. I've been told that synthetic oil won't thicken as much as the standard stuff. Is this true or is my best bet just to get an engine oil heater? I'm also considering getting a little battery heating pad too. Thanks, Diana P.S. I moved up here to Illinois from New Mexico because got a job here...mabye I'll get to work back home one day..
