How long to warm up?

With cooler mornings I have noticed that my F350 dually will stutter and not up shift as early until it is warmed up. Do I need to let it idle for a while or am I looking at another issue? Many thanks

Mine is the same. Plugging it in speeds up the progress.

I have a Scan-gauge in mine and monitor what I can and I don't move mine until she is at least 100*F, seems to help it out. Just my 2 cents worth.

It is around zero here in the mornings and I let mine idle for a few minutes than take it easy for the first few miles.

At 40 degrees just a minute or two is necessary. Hell you dont even have to plug it in if your FICM is good.

I usually dont plug mine in until it hits 10 or so.

And then its warmed up long enough to scrape the windshield if needed
