Default Can i switch on the engine of a honda civic while it is stationary for a prolonged period of time ?

i own a honda civic and i hate joining the girls with their shopping so i wait in the parked car itself.But living in the tropics my city is damn hot.So i need the aircon and hence the engine.But one of my friends said that switching on the engine for prolonged periods of time while it is stationary will damage the car's engine.

The engine should have a fan that will keep it cool enough.

only if it over heats. with the engine runnig and the air con on it will heat up and if over heats then yes it will damage it. I would go in and check out other girls while yours is busy that way she is happy and you are horrny when you get back to getther.

It's a civic so there really isn't too much heat disapating from that little engine, so I wouldn't worry. Just glance at the thermometer once i a while to make sure it's not over heating. You know what's funny though is that with my Subaru here up north in Wisconsin this time of year, my thermometer nevers gets above the cold line on the dial! I worry about getting it started and getting in by crawling through the back hatch because the doors are frozen shut!

just watch the temperature gauge. if it starts getting very high, turn the engine off and go inside. otherwise, you're fine.

I don't think its a good idea. The oil pressure is low for a long time and the water is circulating slowly. Like the man said, shut it off and check out the chicks in the mall.
