Wouldn't it take at least a second or two for the oil to circulate throughout the engine? Another word, if you drive off immediately after starting the car, wouldn't you be running dry?
So, put on your seat belt, put the car in gear, check traffic - voila two to three seconds - then drive off.
if we have aluminum pistons, then it will take a few seconds for the pistons to fully expand and fill up the cylinder bores.
Don't the pistons have rings.
