I have a 2004 focus and I have never had a car that warms up so fast . The
only thing that I can see that would cause this is thermostat stuck open .
Your car should be under warrentee so I hope that your dealer will fix it
for you . The ticker on my car sounds like the top off of a vacume sealed
juice bottle but I don't think that ist is loud
its -20 c dude.... ambient temperature playes a large role in a car
warming up.. when you drive it i bet it gets warmer... engine at higher
Remember it is likely a 4cyl they dont make much heat and the heat that is
producedces gets taken away by such cold air temps... Id say its running
good, but then again all small engine cars take a long time to warm up from
Warm it up enough so the oil comes to temp.. then drive it.. thats what i
did with my old cars.. now i got a 8cyl engine.. the heat stays in it.
Completely normal. It simply doesn't get very hot until you start working
the engine. It usually takes 2-5 minutes of driving to get useable heat
(dependent on outside temps). Usually it won't reach peak temperatures for
another 10 minutes thereafter.
Retrofitting an engine block heater might be the only that would really help
you much, particularly up in your neck of the woods.
