I can definitely hear my car 'stutter' after first turning the engine on. It does it a few times until rpm go down, after about 10 seconds of high idle. Not a big deal unless it gets worse, but was surprised a new car sounds like it's misfiring. I bet it's a direct injection trait, where cold fuel doesn't atomize easily. If that's the case, can't imagine how it'll be in winter :whistling: .
Yep, don't you love Chicago? During wintertime you almost must have flamethrower on standby, especially if wind blows from our Canadian members side... :thumbsup:Personally even when its the summertime I turn the car on and wait at least 2 to 3 minutes before I take off. In the winter that's another story altogether.
I also let my engines idle for at least 15 seconds in summer (to get the oil flowing), and at least a minute in winter. Used to do it longer when I had to merge on a high-speed street right after my house, but not anymore.Even in warm weather are you one to turn on the car and just take off? Personally even when its the summertime I turn the car on and wait at least 2 to 3 minutes before I take off.
