Cold weather starts
The temps have now dropped and I was wondering if any of you warm your auto up. If yes how long? I ask because I have to much money into my truck to start all over again. LOL

On my carbureted Model A (350 engine) I warm it up until it gets to normal operating temp. On my newer fuel injected vehicles I let it warm up for about three minutes when the air temp is in the twenties or below.

Unless it's an emergency, I let anything I start run until the choke kicks off, especially in cold weather.
