Does anyone warm up their car after starting it? I had a 95 maxima before this and she was an old lady, she always needed to be warmed up lol I'm curious if you should warm it up before driving on a cold start. I always do out of habit, curious if it matters.
I believe it takes a few seconds for all the fluids to pump through the engine and you're ready to go.
I never start the car and just pop it into gear I the RPM's settle back down before I go anywhere. Only reason I would warm up my car if it was cold as crap outside, otherwise no, you don't need to warm the car up to normal temperature in order to drive.
I have a name for the 3 new mods...............Druken Purple Pirates!!!

Only time I do is when it's below 20 degrees outside...and that's more for my comfort than anything.
As far as letting RPM's drop, etc...if it's not butt-freezing outside, by the time I back out of the garage, wait for the door to close (my garage door doesn't always like to STAY down), and back into the street, it's easily 30 - 60 seconds before I hit the gas anyway.
