Slow warm Up

I have owned a 2007 Accord Sport Ctdi for about two weeks now. Everything seems fine except it seems very slow to warm up. I get luke warm air from the heater after 5 to 10 minutes but it takes nearly 20 minutes for the temperature gauge to reach almost the middle of the dial.

Is this normal ?

Yep.

Diesels only warm up at high revs, but you dont want to drive at high revs till the engine is warm all you will knack the turbo.

Catch 22.

Makes you wonder what the thermostat is doing.
Supposedly you should have a small pool and large pool.
You use the small pool to heat up quick...then the thermostat opens to let some more cold from the large pool.
Must have one hell of a water jacket around that iCDTi.


ahh! unless it has soemthing to do with th 6L of oil cooling

Polo 1.9 TDI Sport PD100 (lol) was 4.5L...

That makes me think you were a total petrolhead and you're being a convert lol

I have a feeling the Civic holds the heat better once warmed though>
Im pretty sure others cars would a have been colder after sitting for a while, getting back in and being keen for some arm air...its still there!!!

^ same here, always had interesting petrol cars; I imagine this'll probably be my only diesel as well, a CRZ or another S2000 will be my next purchase once my 400 miles a week life settles down

Back to the topic; as the others have said a good 15-20 minutes usually; I find it gets warmer quicker if you don't set the fan to high, leave it about 22 until luke warm air starts coming through

Yes.... I admit... I was seduced by the dark side
If the engine sounded like the usual bucket of bolts....neither the wife or I would have even thought about it to be honest.

I noticed the exact same thing when borrowing an Accord 2,2 some time ago. 15-20 minutes of driving required to get the car going.

Because of that, I'm loving my 1.8 petrol at the moment (about -10-20C now for several days). Starts to blow warm air in just about 3-4 minutes

Gauge not changing at all

Hi

So we have established that Diesels takes longer to warm up.

But I just bought a used 2007 Civic 2.2 Diesel, and noticed that when there is snow on the hood and in front of the air intake. The water temperature gauge does not move at all. The gauge stays at rock bottom and don't move even after a 10 min trip. Is this normal too? Or is perhaps the snow messing up the sensor?

Think your temps are a little colder than ours.
0-5c will take 20 mins to get to temp.
Leave the heater off and it will reduce the time.

Yeah my Accord 2.2 takes ages to warm up too, in fact in the cold weather (-8) the temp started to drop while i waited in traffic.

Glad i read this now. got my 2.2 last week and noticed that it took about 10-15mins to warm up.
Another thing, are civics poor in general for heat? My EP3 wasn't as warm as other cars. I have the temp at high and blower at 2.
