Physical simulation

First of all I am a newby in simulation so I may ask silly questions.

I am trying to create an animation for a machine. As long as I create a rotation or an explode/collapse animation I don't have any problem at all.
If I try to create a physical simulation, I set the parameters I want (in my case a motor and gravity) I may obtain a good movement result the first time but after that if I modify a parameter, it takes ages to save the animation.
The worst is if I save my assembly after creating a physical simulation, my assembly is just not working anymore at the next opening. The mates look wrong and some parts too but when I edit them no problem seems to show up.

I supose this is not normal but what am I doing wrong, I didn't find a lot of information on this subject?
