like he said.toyworx said:Best way to warm it is to drive it slowly. You need to warm up more than just the motor. I usually fire mine up, let it settle down for 30 seconds, and then start driving, being sure to take it nice and easy shifting at 3500 for the first 2 or 3 minutes. Once the temp guage gets to it's normal operating temp...it's hammer time!
As far as cool down, same process in reverse. I always settle down once i'm within 3 or 4 minutes from the house. Driving nice and easy and short shifting. This allows everything to cool down to normal temps before putting her away wet..... :wink:

BOTTOM LINE. Start the car. Idle for a FEW seconds so that the oil pump can get some pressure built up and circulate the oil that has been sitting at the bottom of the pan to the top of the motor. Then drive conservatively for the first 2 mins.
