Hi David,

When I stop my s type diesel, I know that the turbos are still spinning, and so I wait for  a minutes before turning off the engine. The wait also lets the engine know that it is now resting and excess fuel is no longer needed.

Regards,

Peter.

Good post David,

I always let my car settle for a minute before turning ignition off even though it doesn't have a turbo and always let the revs drop before moving off when first started.

Hi

I allways let the car idle for a few seconds, just to let the engine and transmission ecu settle and then turn it off

its bad to rev a car then turn it off, because if there turbo's and they can spin for many seconds without lubrication

if the fans are running I allways wait till they stop, then turn the engine off, as thats when the engine is the coolest

cheers

Joe
