There aren’t any engine lights on ,The car seems to be a little sluggish.
Mazda Mechanic: Dave Hopkins, Technician replied 5 months ago
Ok... Leaving your engine running for an extended period of time isn't really going to damage your engine unless it was low on oil or low on coolant being that it was a new vehicle I don't think you should really worry too much about that ....depending on how many miles you have on it the most I would do at this point is just take it in and have the oil changed because you could have overheated the oil by having it run for so long and then I would reevaluate the situation.... if there are no check engine lights on and no warning lights on , then the chances of any damage are slim to none.
