          Just drive gently under 2k rpm until your coolant is up to temp, and then just try to short shift - don't gun it on the highway, use the on ramp to get up to speed without dropping gears. On a cold day the 3 minutes from my house to the on ramp is more than enough to do that.

      Car doesn't warm up idling for 5-10 minutes. Just need to wait for it to come off high idle and then go slow until you're up to engine temp. Idling a cold car is just running the engine cold longer than necessary.

        Oil does and it warms up enough so that it can properly lubricate engine components. Coolant doesn't usually warm up in that timeframe but that's fine because that's the whole point of the thermostat anyways.

        There is zero reason to not warm up your car when it's proven to reduce wear on engine components when the oil is up to temperature.

            the oil is not thin enough to properly coat engine components. even a car with an accusump is just pushing cold oil, it doesn't evenly spread itself out and lubricate as well as it can.

            in racing cars are usually equipped with oil heaters, which makes sense because you can pre-warm the engine oil and have it circulated before a startup to reduce wear.

            the oil absolutely is thin enough to properly coat engine components. you know that fluids can't be compressed; the oil pump forces the oil to flow and seep into every crevice it can until it comes out of the component (e.g. bearing journals). Being cold oil however, it won't be as good as warm oil in maintaining that protective film, which is why manufacturers say to just drive gently until the engine reaches operating temps. Some people say to do so until the coolant temp gauge reaches the middle, but oil takes longer than coolant to warm up.

            Do you have any fricking idea how much force 50PSI is? Hint: It's in the name "PSI"
            Oil is flowing as soon as the engine is turning from the starter, and is coating everything in seconds. Seconds, like 3-5.
            When they say "75% of wear occurs on startup" they mean WHEN THE ENGINE IS TURNING FROM THE STARTER AND THOSE FEW SECONDS AFTER IGNITION.

            Just drive gently, dont take your RPMS above 2500 before the coolant gets half hot, dont take it above 3500 until the coolant is full hot, and you'll save gas and waste less time.

      I am the OP, and you understand nothing. The important thing is not the other person's car. The important thing is my desire for the good parking spot, or alternately to ensure that my co-workers leave the property safely at night. Masculine men don't do the behavior indicated in my OP. They walk out to the car and if it's good to go, they go-with a minute-ish routine depending on the weather. I've been observing women and men on this specific thing in parking lots regularly for the past five years, with a view toward having my biases confirmed (evidence does so).

      The actually more serious one is texting while driving (30-50% of the population does this visibly all the time on deathtrap freeways, men and women, all racial groups). Had two stupid womenfolk crash immediately behind me not three weeks ago and the one two cars back was most likely peeking at her phone. Normies are filthy scum who can't pay attention.

        If you had an oil pressure gauge, you would see that the oil pressure hits the limit when you rev it up cold - unless the pump is shot or whatever. And yes I run 5W - XX synthetic. My suburban even had limp mode where it wouldn't let the engine rev up over idle when it was below 0°F. I had to put it in 4Lo to move it the one time that I wanted to move it immediately before warming up. But even if its 50F when you start in the morning, it takes a few minutes for oil to hit a good temperature for medium to RPM driving. And unless its below freezing, all of your driving should involve medium/high rpm driving.

          ok? the other anon was talking about oil circulating. it doesn't take minutes for oil to be forced through all the passages after a cold start, that's what I was getting at.
          But talking about oil temps, if you rely on the temp gauge on your dash that's not optimal, since coolant heats up faster than oil. nothing beats an oil temp gauge but if you don't have one the general consensus is 10-15 mins of gentle driving before hammering on it because driving it warms it up quicker than just idling.

          What about a 4-way intersection with no turn lanes? If a dude has his left signal on, the opposite dude can safely turn left as well if he needs to. Not signaling causes more guesswork and slows down traffic.

    >lazy GPS brain rotted c**ts who only know one way to get somewhere and torture me waiting to turn left when they can just go around the block and make a right onto the road they want

    And finally this is mostly drive ways to stores and fastfood, but people who can't see it's not a good idea to turn somewhere, even if it might be technically legal to do so.
    McDondals in down is in front of a straight and left lane going south, with only a straight lane going north, and while you *can* go north and turn left into there legally, you truly are taking your life and everyone around you into your own hands because of that left lane stagger. You simply cannot see, it is impossible. It is not worth it.
    I dunno why drivers have such low critical thinking skills.

      Not justifying the behavior, I know it annoys people and is some boyracer autismo shit,

      I do this when I want to go a little faster to optimize the tire scrub and sidewall flexing. Even at a "normal speed" turn, it helps extend the life of the tires just that fractionally small percent.
      And since we're talking about normal driving turning, fun fact your standard tires really aren't meant to be turned at speeds greater than 15MPH. If you wonder why your sidewalls get cracks or your tread loss is more than the manufac rating it's probably because you're turning too fast, even when you think it's normal or slow.

      so yeah...

      This, however there's a road exactly like this that needs more turning room to u-turn so I take the space for my truck to get in. I never cut people off to do it though.

      Similarly, people who make left turns very shallow so they're almost driving into the stopped traffic on the left. I always turn as wide as reasonably possible

        u turns are kind of different I guess, but I think its safer to turn as much as possible and then reverse slightly while in the intersection rather than cutting someone off in the lane beside you. If you're smart enough to check your mirrors first it doesn't bother me though

          NTA, but
          I think twice so far in my short mid-life I've had truckers flash the lights when I was signaling a change, but I thought it was weird as I always wait until I can see they're a few car lengths behind and then "count to three" before signaling and merging back to the right lane.
          I get that you guys do this for each other to say "you're clear" but you really don't need to do it for regular cars.

          Death to the people who merge as close to the front of a truck as possible though. One of the most stupid things especially as cars get more aerodynamic, which makes them more vulnerable to crosswinds and the massive air pressures coming from a semi.

            I'm driving on my own time and I always make concise, deliberate moves in a vehicle at highway speed. Rest of the impatient fricks can eat a dick.
            If I want to wait until there's more than two car lengths between us I'm going to, your OK flash isn't required. The highway isn't a racetrack and when I'm going to change lanes I'm staying aware of what's behind me.
            But also,

            i only flash my brights if they for whatever reason think it's still not clear to change lanes. i've done it to cars, trucks, doesn't matter, anyone that just isn't sure i flash my brights to tell them they can change lanes. i just don't understand how that other anon thinks "TURN OFF YOUR HIGH BEAMS" when the vehicle flashing its brights to let him in, would be behind him. unless his headlights were that shit and shining bright enough even for people behind to say something.

            >One guy signals to get over. Then he gets over. No conversation is necessary. No blinding lights are necessary
            of course. but if you actually drive, you will encounter other drivers that are more hesitant or unsure, sometimes they'll turn that blinker on and still won't move over even when you hang back to let them in. at which point, just tap the brights once or twice and the message is immediately clear. at least for those people.
            your moronic code of "he used his high beams, he was clearly gonna ASSAULT me" would definitely not hold up in court

            I think the problem here is a difference in understanding.
            I know we're used to people who slap the turn signal and change lanes, sometimes changing lanes before even touching the signal, but some people see it as a communication:
            >I signal to change
            >I wait some minimum time for people to recognize (generally 2 seconds)
            >I change lanes

            no that's what I'm getting at - i've seen cars that wait 5+ seconds with their blinker on. so i tap my brights to let them know they can go in. Or they turn it off thinking that I want to go ahead beside them, so I just flash my brights to let them know they can still merge, and they do exactly that.

Or maybe it just makes you feel like you're in le cool kids truckers club because your trainer let you in on this one cool unwritten law (that contradicts the written law), and laughs behind your back after you, the absolute madman, actually did it.

            how shit is your reading comprehension? They'd SIT THERE with their blinkers on for a good 5 seconds or so, which is a very long time when you're going down any major road. When it became clear they weren't sure whether they were wanted to change lanes or not, I then flashed my high beams, THEN they immediately moved over.

            What are some other "universal rules" (gay mating strategies) I should be aware of so I can recognize them (you) out in the wild and give a wide berth?

            Watch out for "handshakes", people often use them as a sign of mutual respect and that neither person has a weapon. But this could also be used to transition into a takedown or judo throw resulting in your death. The next time you see someone extend their right hand you should assume they are a homosexual and mag dump them.

        Are people really not taught this? Can't tell you how many speeding tickets I've avoided by good samaritans warning about a speed trap or how many people I've warned as well.

            in australia it seems to be a lost art the closer to a city you are. at that point it's usually 4wds, trucks, or anyone in an older car that'll warn you. further out more people will warn of speed traps doing that.

        They'll also do it when it's starting to get dark if you haven't turned your lights on to remind you to turn them on. I've had that happen a couple of times.

          I remember once I was on a long drive and it was already completely dark and I did this to 2 different people with no lights on MULTIPLE times and they just carried on being moronic. I didn't want to pass them because they would be even less visible if they were behind me

      Who taught you that flashing brights was a form of communication? AFAIK the only thing it ever means is
      >turn your brights off, idiot
      Are you making stuff up just to troll?

      Dipping your lights is acceptance/permission while high beams are warning/denial. Fricking zoomers, man.

    My fricking black neighbor does this shit and I like to leave my windows cracked to air my car out but now can't because when I get in it smells like fricking Black person weeds. Cops and the apartment complex don't do shit about it. Thinking about race transitioning so I can do whatever the frick I want.

      lol at morons still arguing about muh no-load idle, as if that is what is going to kill even 1% of modern cars
      if it does, it's cause they never ever changed the oil

      according to the experts on DA, who have definitely driven a large variety of cars from across many decades, ALL street-legal cars including the original Model T have no trouble keeping up with highway traffic!

      reality is you will get tailgated no matter what eventually
      i often get tailgated on an otherwise empty 2 lane highway access road in the right lane slowing down to make an extremely sharp turn onto a shitty busted up road with 2 active commercial driveways right there
      the vaccine victims behind me simply refuse to change lanes, period

        True, but homosexuals get so angry when tailgating then cutting. I don't get it. Perfectly empty left lane too. Are people not able to measure distance and speeds when driving a lot? Can they not see I'm driving slower??

    Sitting in the right lane with an open passing lane and cruising at the same speed as the car in front of you but like 10ft off their bumper. Nobody does it to me, because I’m faster than the lifted rig Black person trucks around here, but goddamn, son. Don’t be moronic.

    Also people who either leave multiple car lengths open in front of them at a red light or the people who have no impulse control and keep scooting forward a few inches and then stopping again. homie, you’re not getting the light faster, and if you’re trying to be first (???) in some imaginary life race, I’m going tobe leaving your fat Tuscon or whatever in the dust anyway, so what did you gain? Take some ADHD meds.

      I hate when I'm behind one of these, usually a SUV or a big nig truck that blocks my view of the light, and she tricks me into moving as well. Usually now, if u remember, I will go to the left edge of the lane so I can see if its everyone moving or just the one spazz.
