In newer automatic cars, you won't be hurting the engine by switching from reverse to drive because the car will wait in neutral before actually going into gear. So if you don't have this feature, you could potentially damage things connected to the drivetrain by putting so much force on the torque converter.


A slight RPM increase when shifting from "D" to neutral is normal. The reason for this is the engaged transmission is putting a slight load on the engine and slowing it down. In neutral the engine is doing less work because it is not trying to turn the drivetrain.


Not sure if this is true or false but apparently in d3 your hitting a higher rpm, around 3k at 40kmph wich would be engaging vtech on most hondas. Not sure if that would change gas consumption. If true this could possibly be a good gear for quick take off?
