So I bought this car used with 62,000 miles on it. I have had it for 5 years now and it now has about 106,500 miles on it. I have always (except occasionally when I m running late) tried to turn it on, let the RPM drop under 1 before putting it in drive. Some articles say this is a good thing to do, some say it s bad. I just feel like when your car sits overnight or for a long time, it s hard on it when you start it and just make it drive in 2 seconds. It seems it gets aggravated (lol) when I start it stop it start it stop it too like when I m running quick errands. Can any mechanics here confirm if letting it run 1-2 minutes until the engine quiets down is ok?
