How long should I let my powerstroke warm up?

We often get this question from athletes who want to know how long they should wait before their powerstroke is “ready”. Well, the answer depends on a few factors. For example, if you’re just warming up and not going into an intense workout then it’s probably okay to start with a longer warm-up routine such as 10 minutes of light jogging followed by some dynamic stretches. But if you’re about to go hard for 30 minutes or more then it’s best to save your powerstrokes for the latter stages of your training when your muscles are already warmed up and ready to go.

You should let your car engine warm up for at least 5 minutes. This allows the oil to reach operating temperature and lubricates all moving parts inside of the engine. It’s also a good idea to check your tire pressure before you leave as low tire pressure, a dirty air filter and worn brakes are three of the top causes for dying engines.

  1. If your truck is cold, it may take up to 10 minutes for the oil to reach operating temperature
  2. Be sure to let your engine idle for a few minutes before driving off
  3. Keep in mind that if you’re going uphill or pulling heavy loads, the engine will need more time to warm up
  4. You can also use an electric block heater if you live in a colder climate and want a quicker start-up time
  5. It’s important not to drive around with your truck idling – this wastes gas and pollutes the air!
  6. Remember that diesel fuel has a lower flashpoint than gasoline so be careful when refueling at night or during bad weather conditions
