Here’s some advice that you may have not heard before. To keep your engine healthy, let your vehicle idle for about 30 to 60 seconds before driving off. You would be surprised at how much of an impact doing this can have on the health and lifespan of your car.

In order for the engine and all of the different parts of the engine to function correctly, motor oil needs to lubricate all of those parts. When your vehicle has been sitting for over a couple hours, the motor oil will gradually sink towards the bottom of the engine. By simply idling for as little as 30 seconds, you can be sure that all of the engine parts are properly lubricated before getting put to work. If not, these parts are exposed to unnecessary friction and the engine can get worn down!
