There's a water leak from my rear window, what can seal in cold weather besides caulk?

Silicone. Bubble gum? Really anything like that.

Hopefully it'll be warmer tomorrow, I'll get the caulk gun and heat gun out and re-seal the leak

The last two days were it's been single digits my rangers oil pressure gauge has been slow to respond. For the first couple of minutes it will read no pressure then spring up to normal operating range. I'm running mobile 1 5w20 full synthetic oil and a motorcraft fl400s filter.

As you all know, my battery died on Nov. 12. It was the ORIGINAL from Oct. 2000.
The shop that installed my NEW battery (Truck was dead , had to get it towed because I thought other things might also be wrong)
Anyway, The NEW battery is an Exide battery. If this is a shitty battery, please don't tell me, because I'd be worried all the time thinking it won't make it thru the winter.

Motorcraft ones last so damn long so that's what I replace them with.
