Cooling your engine isn't an issue, if your gauge is moving while it's idling you might need a thermostat. I let my engine idle thirty seconds to get everything circulating before I drive off then take it easy for the first few miles until it's warm. I might change the thermostat out soon, it seems to take longer then I expect to warm up (about 6-7 minutes while driving). Most of the other pickups seem to be warm within three minutes.
