This is actually an engine killer.  Your choke is wide open bathing the
cylinders with non-lubricating gas.  It's better for all vehicles if you
start the car and and then drive gently allowing the engine to warm up as
quickly as possible.  In Germany it's illegal to let your car idle to warm
up because they know its bad for the car and the environment.  And we all
know that Germans know cars ;-).
