i use the 4000 at work to jump start lots of vehicles including a few new civics. The batteries on modern cars are only really designed to start the engine using one go, esp a massive diesel engine.
spend the extra money and get the 4000. for a diesel its the peak amps which make all the difference. and when starting from ice cold, turn off all other ekectrics like auto lights / wipers, stereo, interior lights etc.
If your jumping regularly, i would get it checked out, dont use your HID lights (if you have them) with out the engine running, they use silly amounts of power!
Hope this helps!
