@Anarach: Possibly. I don't know enough to be able to comment. Just saw the post and thought I'd share it. :)

The answer to mechanics.stackexchange.com/questions/12752/… is vry interesting and does have scenarios in which your car can apparently be damaged by stalling.

The last warning seems strange to me. I don't think I've ever come across anybody stalling a car at any significant speed. Its only ever when you are at low speeds and thus the engine is turning over too slowly that a stall happens. I would imagine that even in top gear you'd have to be going relatively slowly to stall your car... What sort of speeds are you thinking of in terms of stalling here?

comment When cranking an engine between 15 second intervals is ok?
It is worth noting that the above doesn't say you have to wait for 15 seconds, it says don't do it for 15 seconds at a time. This to me means don't turn the key to the "start engine" position that engages the starter motor and then hold it there for 15 seconds. This then implies to me that you can do it for a total of 15 seconds in multiple attempts without any worry at all.
