No investigation has been carried out on whether the engine idle is bad. It does seem to be the case that your internal engine pollution increases the more often you let the car idle. The risk of deposits increases, especially with petrol engines. Diesel engines will cause more soot deposits. However, there are no hard research results that indicate that idling is bad for the engine.
