Good morning my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
To answer your question yes it is common for him to run the engines. There are a number of reasons to run them including filling the transmissions with new fluid, to checking for leaks, and also for checking voltages on certain items. Did you have any other concerns or did you just want to know if it was normal for him to run the engine? -Jason
