    Those articles crack me up. Yeah, fine, I see the mechanical points being made about the engine, but give me a break. No engine is going to suffer that much because you let it run a few minutes. Plus, here where it's real winter for four full months, you're not warming it up for the sake of your engine, you're warming it up so you don't have to drive the first five miles with your butt-cheeks clenched together.

    There're so many of those "The way you've always done it is actually the wrong way!" articles nowadays.

      Driving in the Adirondacks I had an almost new Ford Taurus with V-6. It was so cold the engine could not produce enough heat to keep the car glass from icing over. Even with cardboard in front of grill. Had to stop every so many miles and let the heat build up under the hood. I f I remember it was about -35 deg.

        I’ve had to put cardboard in front of the radiator to partially block airflow to keep engine temp normal at freeway speed; but not in a long time. Stay home when it’s that cold! My truck runs normal at -15
