Do you allow your vehicles engines warm up after sitting for more than say 8 hours?

You live in the Caribbean. Your engine is never not warm.

yes, other people on the board are going to bash me but, letting your engine coming up to operating temperature is crucial before you step on it. what vehicle are you talking about to warm up? Ive had many Nissan's including a Sentra Spec V with a Maxima VQ35 swap and i always let the car warm up. Also i had manual transmission that wouldnt go into 2nd gear if it was cold because i had a mix of redline and M1 tranny fluid in.

You mean by just idling them? Over here, during winter the engine will never reach operating temp if you just idle it. Idling is bad for the car in a lot of ways, anyway. Try doing a search - this subject must have been discussed a million times on here, and there are hard core fans on both sides of it.
