Ford Mustang: Turbo Engine Needs More Time

The new Ford Mustang now comes with a new EcoBoost turbo engine. The question now is whether it needs to be warmed up first or not.

Some poeple are saying that since the vehicle is an exhaust powered air compressor, the engine won’t have to be heated up. However, other argues that since the turbo engine comes with spinning shafts that are lubricated with engine oil, the engine will need to be heated up so that the old get hot. The hot oil should allow the engine to have better lubrication.

Of course, that does not mean that you have to sit there in the car and wait for it to heat up but most people would advise you to drive at a normal speed for 10 to 15 minutes so that the engine is hot enough. That will also allow the shaft, and bearing to expand.

Do you wait for the engine to heat up?
