    1. Start the engine cold and the engine temperature, intake air temperature and transmission temperature should be within only a few degrees temperature of each other..

    2. Test drive until operating temperature is obtained.

    3. Allow the vehicle to cool and repeat steps #1 and #2 a second time.
