    Hi All
    My car is smooth and quiet at tick over whilst in drive, so much so that, twice recently , I have turned the engine off while still in drive!! Obviously I won't make a habit of this but, just out of curiosity, would this damage anything long term?

    I don't see that as a problem, obviously you need to take it out to start it but otherwise it will be fine.

    I wouldn't want to say definitively, but I can't see that doing any harm either.

    Nope it won't do anything mate , but it's designed to put that guilt in you so you don't do it again :Wink:

    I have done it on my hybrid but do put in P and then turn off.
