Do not increase engine speed until the oil pressure
indicates between 250 and 450 kPa (30 and 70 psi).
The engine oil pressure indicator should go off and

reach normal operating temperature sooner. When
idling in cool weather, the ECM may increase the
engine speed to approximately 1000 to 1200 rpm.
Do not race the engine to make the machine warm
up more quickly.
NOTE: The ECM will disengage the starter at 600
rpm. Holding the starter engaged after the engine
has started will not damage the starter.
