Just wondering, how cold does it get where you are?+1
In Canada here, it gets pretty cold. The only reason I have ever let any car I have owned warm up, is to have heat in the car when I am ready to go. Even then, I rarely ever do that. When I want to go, I just get in and go.
right, we're painting a broad picture. most folks living in extremes are using different weight oils, engine heaters, etc.It all depends on how cold it is outside.
I treat a "cold-start
If you just start it, and drive off gently, the light will go off in just a couple of minutes. If you live where it is well below freezing, count to ten slowly, then drive off. Below zero, count to thirty slowly. Warming cars up wastes gas, and tends to put stuff in the oil (Unburned gas and water) that doesn't belong there.I have a 2013 2.5 and it takes a good 5 minutes before that **** cold engine blue light goes away.
The last couple of years, not that cold, but still down to around -20C to -25C (-4F to -13F)Just wondering, how cold does it get where you are?
EXACTLY.right, we're painting a broad picture. most folks living in extremes are using different weight oils, engine heaters, etc.
so to the original poster if you're living in an extreme environment, do let us know, most of us are assuming you're not living in 120 degree desert or frigid climate.
