Should You Warm Up Your Engine Before Driving Off?


It is quite common that people warm up their car engines before they hit the accelerator and drive off, but is it a good idea to let the engine run off to warm itself?

It is a good practice and not so good at the same time, and it all depends on your engine. If your vehicle has a carburetted engine, it might be a good idea, but if it is a fuel injective car, this might not be a good idea.

If you own a fuel injective vehicle, it is best to let a car warm up for a few seconds and then drive off slowly, that way the engine warms up faster than it would otherwise. If yours has a carburetted engine, it is okay to let it warm up a bit longer.
