Can I leave my car running to get it warm during the winter?

Winter is coming soon, and every morning it feels like it gets colder and colder. Many people struggle with the cold and hate getting into their cars in the morning.

The easiest way to solve this is to let your car run to warm it up, but is that okay for your car?

Apparently, it is really bad for your car to warm it up like that.


The information about warming a car up was handed down, and it was true once upon a time in the 1990s when cars had a carburetor that needed to be heated up.

Now cars don’t need time to heat up their carburetor because they don’t exist anymore.

Today there are fuel injectors and better oil technology.

Today warming up your car adds to pollution, wastes fuel, and damages the car.

A total of 1.6% of gas emissions in 2014 were due to idling cars. The suggested time for idling in the cold is no more than 30 seconds.

In order to warm up your car quickly, you need to just drive it.
