Does "it damages w/o object" mean "it damages itself"?

For example:

If you use your car too much it damages.

0

"To damage" is a transitive verb, and therefore it needs an object.

Therefore, this:

If you use your car too much it damages.

is not OK. You can eventually rewrite it as:

If you use your car too much it gets damaged.

or:

Too much use damages your car.

where "your car" is the object of "damages".
