    That's normal - I know that the newer engines require a minimum 20% to 30% load otherwise glazing, fuel in engine oil, start to run rough after 20 minutes, etc will occur (ie you have to change the oil much more regularly)

    You should never leave the newer engines idle until warmed up - they are designed to be driven at a stead pace during the warming up period.

    "newer" - any jap/euro engine and more recent aus engines.

    I'm with the others - about 5km of driving. If you just let it sit and idle it wont actually come up to temp. It needs a load to do so. Might do in summer. Our NM petrol would come up to temp at idle.

    I judge mine by distance which is about 3 - 4 kms from home (at about 50kph) until it reaches the right temp. This would take about 5 minutes I suppose. After the first kilometre the gauge has not even moved but starts to rise steadily after that.

    10 minutes is about right.

    Hi Bernard, I don't think 10 min's is to long to come to reach full operating temp, but if in dought I normally take my cars to a radiator specialist for all these related problems.

    NP DID, How long for warm up

    Hello all,
    Fairly inane question, but roughly how long roughly on average does it take your NP DID to reach operating temperature, as determined by temperature guage. I know there are a lot of variables in this question, but mine seems to take up to 10minutes, whilst commadores, suzuki and my old Pajero only take about 4 minutes. Just want to guage wether to investigate thermostat.

    Thanks
    Bernard
