Effects of Excessive Engine Idling

Tracking a vehicle’s operating hours is as important as determining mileage.

Engine idling is often unavoidable during day-to-day vehicle operation. Whether it’s sitting in traffic or waiting in the school parking lot, excessive idling creates engine wear without advancing the odometer.

The service life of a motor oil is described in miles; however, it is greatly affected by a vehicle’s operating conditions. This is why AMSOIL provides definitions for normal and severe service. Commercial and fleet vehicles are automatically included in the severe service category due to the nature of their operating conditions. Vehicles that frequently tow, haul and plow are obvious candidates for the category, but excessive idling is often overlooked.

The detrimental effects of high idle-times are numerous:

  • Decreased fuel economy
  • Incomplete fuel combustion, leading to fuel dilution and lowered oil viscosity, additive concentration and oil pressure – all of which increase the risk of wear
  • Increased oil consumption
  • Compromised injector tips, turbochargers and valve seats (diesel engines)

AMSOIL Signature Series Motor Oil represents the pinnacle of oil formulation, but all oils eventually lose their ability to provide proper lubrication and component protection. We recommend changing Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil after 700-hours of operation in addition to the other established guidelines.

Signature Series Motor Oil counteracts some of the effects of prolonged idling by preventing deposits and resisting oil volatility (burn-off). Its unique synthetic formulation maximizes energy efficiency for optimum fuel economy.

It is vital to install a quality motor oil in your vehicle and maintain an accurate log of both mileage and hours of engine operation. Combining Signature Series Motor Oil with the appropriate drain interval will help prevent engine wear and costly repairs.
