Short running
#1
If a DeLorean is started from cold, reversed out of the garage and then immediately driven back in and the engine shut off on nearly a daily basis would this do the car any harm?

This is purely for moving the car out of the way to get at other stuff in the garage...

Well i wouldnt do it chris, you will get a lot of condensation in the oil, which probably wont hurt , but imo not good

Yep. Not only that, cold oil doesnt do its job very well. Plus, not moving very far doesnt get the system lubed very much. IMHO.
I wouldnt worry too much, unless you're doing this every day!

For the first 3 minutes, the car is running rich. Keep shutting it off before it's warm and you'll soak the oil in fuel.
