Tech Tip: Cold Weather Warm-Up Idling Can Harm a Modern Engine

Winter is hanging on for much of the US. Be sure to protect your vehicle from excess wear and friction caused by long periods of idling.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, idling does surprisingly little to warm the engines of today’s gasoline-powered vehicles. Modern engines are engineered so they’ll actually warm up faster if they are driven, not left to idle for long periods of time. Until the engine warms up sufficiently, the onboard computer system is putting extra gas into the combustion chamber. And all that gas is an outstanding solvent that can wash lubricating oil off the walls, causing significant extra wear and friction on components like piston rings and cylinder liners. This engine warming negative effect can be fought off with engine treatment…
