yes it can on short trips :a car needs at least an hour running to burn off the condensation in crankcase alone

the engine will never fully warm up, and will not produce heat to the cab area for very long during cold weather

Extreme cold weather conditions can affect the average automobile battery's life and performance. Automobile batteries produce electrons through chemical reactions. During cold weather, the battery's chemical reactions take place more slowly, thus producing fewer electrons with which to power the engine. In addition, the engine's oil thickens during cold weather, causing the engine to require up to three times as much power to turn over.

From the result of combustion during the power stroke of each cylinder.

The carbon monoxide levels in your home may be at their highest during cold weather for a couple of reasons. First, if the weather is cold you are likely running the heater, and gas- or oil-fired heaters can produce carbon monoxide. Second, you probably keep the windows and doors closed as much as possible, trapping carbon monoxide inside the house. The carbon monoxide emitted by a car may increase when it is cold because the engine burns fuel less efficiently when the engine is cold.
