I have been taking off as soon as I can shift it for the past 42 years and never saw any dirt in my engines and all my vehicles have been mostly junked after the body gets to old.
A diesel will heat up only when it is working and heating them whiile appying power from the power train is as good as sitting Idle with the turbo shut to create heat.
When I tow I just take it easy for the first mile or so till the temperature of the oil is at 160F. Oil Temperature is what is important not water temperature, but the cooler usualy keep it at 5to8F lower then the water when heating up.
