Driving without engine bay lid
First off, let me preface by saying I was brought up believing that the only stupid question is the one you don't ask. That being said, I am working on the engine bay lid on my car and next week the car is scheduled to go in the shop to fix the frame holding the radiator fans. The lid won't be done by then and my options are to put it back on the car for the drive to the shop and bringing it back home to finish while the cars in the shop, or driving it there sans engine bay lid.
I don't think there would be any problems driving without the engine bay lid, but would rather take the chance of looking dumb by asking y'all than just doing it and risk something happening. These cars do have their quirks.
