Use a block heater in the cold, most wear and tear happens during cold startup.
Not worried about it. I'm sure it turned over so easily because of the synth oil i put in it. The starter turned over as effortlessly as if it were summer. That and the fact that a diesel doesn't have a choke to cause high rpms while the engine warms up.
I'm sure the oil gets where it needs to go very quickly.
