Put it this way... my other neighbor's diesel VW has a quieter sounding engine. When its cold out, let the car warm up a few minutes, simple as that. I cant stand watching idiots fire up their car on 0 degree mornings and drive off like a bat out of Hell. That poor, poor, poor engine.
that is why i want to warm the engine...
i don want my car to sound like crap and drive like crap.
cold start engines are normally slow and lack of power...
