10 minutes to motorway then 20 mins on the motorway Pete.I noticed that out T6 is slow to warm up on cold days if the engine is not asked to work hard. We live near a motorway, so a lot of our journeys mean we are up to 70mph very quickly - no issues there with warming up.
However, a slower run not using the motorway (traffic etc) seems to result in much slower warm-up. Particularly if the cabin heater is being used fully on a cold day. I don’t see it as an issue, just the way diesels operate.
What was your journey like this morning ?
Doesn't sound right! My water is normally upto temp after about 15 minutes, 10 minutes later oil upto temp too10 minutes to motorway then 20 mins on the motorway Pete.
It feels like I’m in an old car where the thermostat has failed to ‘open’ and I need to block half of the radiator off with some cardboard
My vans fitted with one, but wondered if this would explain varying warm up times. With an ambient temp 5°C and under, my interior warms up significantly quicker as the coolant heater fires up along with the engine from cold. With the ambient above 5°C it takes a fair bit longer to get a comfortable cabin temp.Just look for the label on the driver door edge
