Hi Chris. I've read your 4/15/05 response on this subject but my question is slightly different. I have to move my car out of and into the garage a few times a week to use the garage bay for an rowing machine. I can roll the car out without starting it but due to the slope I cannot safely push it back in. Am I killing the engine with these short (sub-30 second) start-ups? Since I have to start it to pull it in am I helping matters by rolling it out? Is there anything I can do to mitigate the harm? Thanks for your thoughts. Brian
