While stopping at a red light, you must have discovered that if the rush is too much, some people turned off their vehicle engines and sit back quietly. No, they are not foolish! They are actually giving more life to their vehicle. Unnecessary idling kills your vehicle slowly without you even knowing it!
Idling the vehicle puts pressure on the modern fuel injection systems in today's vehicles. Idling was applied in cold or heats when fuel injection wasn't prevalent in older vehicles. To keep the engine from stalling, people used to keep it running or it might not switch on.
But today, you don't have to do that! The idling you do on today's vehicle burns precious fuel and leaves fuel residue on the cylinder walls that stick to it because the cylinders aren't moving as fast as they typically do. This contaminates the engine oil with carbon residue and makes your vehicle's innards dirty.
If you drive more on the highway, idling never occurs, but in traffic jams, you tend to idle a lot, which puts enormous heat on the engine. The best thing to do is to take a look at the timer on the traffic signal and shut off your vehicle accordingly or keeping the vehicle in neutral and giving some extra RPM to the vehicle so that idling doesn't occur much.
If you really need the vehicle to keep running with the Air Conditioning on in summers, keep giving revs to the vehicle so that the engine runs much better and oil circulates inside the engine. Because India is a highly humid country, Air Conditioning is always on, but try using it less often because it puts pressure on the vehicle parts and you want to prolong the life of your vehicle don't you?
When discussing dream vehicles, many think about those fancy vehicles that transform into a towering robot. Every vehicle enthusiast wishes to drive a vehicle that goes faster than any type of race vehicle on the planet. People's mind teems with extremely developed car that looks like though it would really come in the long run. These ideas however are now closer to reality considering the engineering technology that vehicle makers employ these days.
