In the Air Force we started our F-350s about 100 times a day 7 days a week.
Never had any engine problems that could be linked to lots of stops and starts except for maybe an "low EGR flow" code in one truck over 10 years.
These were 6.0h-no and 6.4L engines.
We did have some 1990 dodge trucks with the 12valve 5.9L with the P-pump, never had any engine, starter problems with them. They are pretty rough.
We did send a few fords back to motor pool for bad starters and ignition switchs over the years but not as many as you would think for starting them 100 times a day.
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
