Ya I know when I was skimming over the owners manual for my truck when I first got it, it says to let it run for a little bit after driving

It lets the vehicle continue to idle for a pre-determined amount of time after you have exited the vehicle . I kept that in mind when I owned a turbo car and got 200,000 miles out of the original turbo before I scrapped the car .
