Hi everybody,

Do I have to keep the heat needle in the middle always when I start driving.

Because when I start the car in the morning, I have to wait 10 more mints to get the heat needle in the middle. After that the needle remains stable, Pls tell me is it necessary to wait untill it heats completely.

Please help me by telling this one, If I dont wait Is it bad for engine?

.Thanks

No you don't have to wait. In fact the owners manual says do not let it warm up at at idle (sitting). Instead drive it, but try and keep it below 3k rpms until the needle is at the very least completely out of the blue. Once it gets to the middle it's ok for you to do whatever you want with her... for the most part...
