Can a leaking heater control valve cause temp gauge to show a slower than normal engine warm up?

Maybe a little bit since it is a bit more coolant to warm up, but check your thermostat it may not be closing as it should and would be a definite cause for slow warm up and might also cause it to cool off a lot when you are traveling fast in cold weather.
