Here's me yet again with another (possibly) stupid question. So, just the other day I started the car and immediately turned it off because I had forgotten something in my house. I know that some oil film usually remains on the engine bearings after the engine is shut off but I can't help feeling anxious about causing wear and tear in that brief moment, or during the next engine start. Is it possible that there was no oil during the subsequent engine start and that the bearings got worn? We're talking about a brand new Mazda3 (2.0 petrol) so I hope you can understand my fear.
