Re: quick question

do yourself a favor, wait for your car to warm up and watch that thermometer gauge go up before you start beating on your car, its not good to get on the car when the motor is still cold.

took the words right outa my mouth! lol

thats for any car or truck. its never a good idea to beat on or put any real stress on a engine until its warmed up. weather it be racing around in your lude, or towing a boat with a truck, let it warm up first.

dont get me wrong you CAN drive it without letting it warm up first. some people may argue or say you need to let it warm up before driving it at all. but really as long as your taking it relatively easy while its cold you'll be fine. just has to do with the way the different metals and fluids expand as they warm up, and so that you dont add any unwanted wear on to your engine.

Re: quick question

Not a totally ridiculous question, yes you must see the temp gauge come up just a bit. Enough time for the oil to circulate through the pump to all the parts of the motor. Our Vtec relies on oil pressure to work properly. Yeah plus its not a good idea to rev the motor too high while its cold. I suggest using V Max about every other oil change to cut down on friction issues.

Re: quick question

Ya i never said I slammed on my car when it was cold I was just wondering because some of the posts around here talked about vtec not engaging due to oil and things. So I was just wondering if the car needed to be warm too thats all. Im not dumb enough to hop in a cold car and beat on it Im actually pretty nice to my prelude.

Re: quick question

It needs to be warm, the oil pressure must be a certain level (to avoid heavy loads if the oil pump is dicky) and there must be sufficient oil in the system.
