Squeak at shut down

Hey Guys,

Lately I have been try to conserve fuel. I do alot of running around on a farm and short trips here and there. I used to let her idle for five or ten minutes sometimes but im trying to save fuel so I shut her down each time. Now I have started to get a Squeak or chirp when She turns off. Anyone know that is? IS it bad? And what do you guys recomend about shutting it down, should I keep doing it or get over the fact im wasting fuel and think about conserving my engine life

yup, that should be all it is. these engines stop rotating almost instantly and the belt will slip "squeak". Nothing to worry bout.

As for shutting it down right away, If you just put it in drive and granny cruised across your field your fine, after a normal round town drive give it 1-2 minutes, if you just drug a trailer or ran it hard let it sit for 3-4 minutes to cool off then shut it down. You just don't want that already hot oil to be sitting in your turbo while the turbo is still cookin its hard on the turbo.
