 i think they are scared of damaging the engine 

Mine with at lest Half million  AutoStop cycles is still going strong     

she starts up right away No issues..

 

Nothing will happen as long as you change the engine oil often enough,  the engine was well taken care of as it has

No Sludge  NO oil consumption  etc.

 

 

 

 

 

It would never damage the engine. At most it will burn out the starter.

they are worried about crankshaft wear

 

it has a 60kw 3 phase 300volt starter 

No wimpy 12voltDC starter

 

 

 but you still do need a good working 12volt battery for everything to work correctly... (since it runs the normal 12 volt stuff )

Did you mean flex-plate wear? Can't see how auto stop-start would adversely affect the crankshaft main bearings as I doubt the oil would completely drain from the journals on such short cycles, but what do I know, I'm old and drive old stuff without that new-fangled tech.

Do you have any documentation to back this up? I have been googling the starter motor specs and haven't been able to find specs to support that.

Thanks

Believe he’s referring to his Tahoe Hybrid. Our starters are heavier duty (rated for many more cycles) but still just 12v.

sorry it's the hybrid version it has a 60KW(80HP) ultra HIGH speed starter    it will spin the engine to 1,000 or 2,000 RPM in a  Half of a second... it can drive it upto 30mph in EV

 

 the starter in built into the transmission

i thought the mild hybrid use the "Belt based starter" those are 16 or 20hp or so(they start via the crankshaft)  instead of the flywheel  plate
