there shouldn't be. Heck, I never have time to sit there and let the car warm up for 10 mins.............I just try to not let the rpm get too high until my temp gauge shows a normal setting.

A somewhat decent source has told me that 15 seconds is all you really need for normal driving, even here in -30 Ottawa. It's enough to get oil throughout the motor. Longer doesn't hurt though and you'll probably be clearing off you windows anyway while it warms up. For driving hard though you should allow everything to come up to operating temp.

Modern cars don't need to be "warmed up" to the extend that old carbeurated beasts did. Too much idling after starting up can actually have adverse effects on your cats, from what I've heard, too.

I usually just crank it and let it still while I put my belt on and plug in the fuzzbuster, then just try not to thrash it until the temps are near normal.

I get in turn the key, and pump out of my driveway at 20mph and then just continue from that.

I just wait until my seatbelt light goes off on the dash, which is about 2 minutes or so. Then i pull out and drive her easy until she's fully warmed up, the car that is lol... :)

I always buckle up, but in my car if the passenger belt is not being used the light stays on for a couple of minutes before it goes off...

I usually give my car 5 mins to heat, and that usually clears out the evil OH frost that daily engulfs my car. As for you with the seatbelt problems, I too was annoyed with the alarmclock-type chime. One day while cleaning, I disconnected the wire to the seat belt, and I haven't heard the chime since then.

heres what you do...let the car warm for about two minutes until the RPms drop to about 1000. Then drive slowly , not revving past about 2500-3000 rpms shifting softly. When the needle gets to idle temp, the tranny and engine should be warm...now gradually rev a 1000 rpms higher per shift for like 10 min and car is now ready for driving like a nissan is supposed to be driven
