There is a good summary on the new diesel's here in the papar today.

"Cox says that it’s important to “be as concerned with the engine as you are with the transmission” and a proper warm-up helps the longevity of both these components."

good info here...I bought my cummins dodge 2500 2010 model just last year....I need to dig through the manual because so far I am not well studied about all the nuances, care, and maintenance...

Also forgot to mention to check oil requirements, must meet Cummins spec 20008, some 15w-40 diesel oils don't. We use Valvoline Blue Extreme 5w-40 synthetic. Dodge specifies syn. For cold weather but I use it year around. I feel this helps with good lube during warm up.

Any discussion about oil should look at the very best oil web site and discussions with real oil experts, which may include using dino oil vs synthetic:
