Quick question

In the morning, when you start your car, how long should you let her stand until you drive away?

a few seconds is fine. the owner's manual says to warm up the car by driving it rather than idling.

Hi,

As mentioned about 30 sec. initial warm-up. This allows the Oil to circulate through the engine and float the crankshaft. The drive the car easily for about 5 min. until the tranny has a chance to warm-up...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
