          You definately want to wait 20 or 30 seconds to go ahead and get oil recirculating through your valve train and back down into the oil pan

            IMHO....

            DO NOT START THE CAR AND REV IT TO ANY RPM AND KEEP IT THERE

            DO NOT LET TEH CAR IDLE TO WARM UP

            You want to start the car and get to drving...keeping it in the 2 to 3k range to start and under 4k until the oil temp gets passed 120....The coolant gauge means nothing for engine temp...ignore that...not until the oil temp is up do you want to exceed 4K...

            Thats my opinion

            werd....


            I can let it idle for 15 minutes, and the oil temp is still cold. you have to drive it easy for a bit to let the car warm up.
