If you have a temp gauge wait until the needle starts moving up. The cold mark on the gauge is 100°F. If you don't have a gauge it should be warm enough after about 5 minutes of driving. HTH. -Jim


Do you really wait until the water is hot enough to turn on the heater? If you want to be sure it is warm enough, six to eight blocks should warm it up enough.

I sure do. -Jim


Not sure where you live but maybe a little cool/cold air before the heat comes is not good. If every thing is working right and you only need to wait for heat, about a half a mile should start giving you warm air. If you only want hot (75-80) it will probably take a good mile.
