Coolant and oil get to operating temperature very quickly. I don't have a DPF so I don't have to worry about regeneration On the weekends it gets taken for long hard drives.Why did you even buy a TDI with a cr*ppy short commute like that? And people say you're smart? Whole drive train never even gets warmed up to correct operating temps with that distance. Let alone trying to complete a DPF regeneration.
Should have bought anything but a TDI for that kind of drive. SMH.
This is a modern diesel engine, not something from the '50s. It will be fine. I'm a heavy duty equipment technician and deal with diesel engines all day, mostly with 15+ litre displacement that idle all day. I'm not ignorant to what I'm doing lol.
Some of y'all need to chill.
