    Is idling for a long time bad?

    Hi. If the 996tt sits idling for 30 minutes or more, as long as the
    temperature gage stays at normal temperature, is this OK for the motor,
    or is it damaging?
    thanks,
    Joe

    Can't see a problem. There is no stress on the engine as long as it doesn't overheat (which it shouldn't in normal circumstances)

    Just curious as to what situation would you be in where your engine idles for 30 min....?

    like in heavy traffic?

    Yes, or waiting in a parking lot with the air conditioning on etc.
