Is there any harm in shifting between them while moving?

comment What would cause a car to lose power a few seconds after starting, then run normally?
I've noticed it happening often in the last few rainy days, so that might be it.

@Tim: What, you can't magically identify and fix my problem over the internet? :) But for now I'm not sure how exactly to test any of those, so I'm just giving some more clues. Is there a simple way to isolate whether it's a lack of fuel or a lack of spark?

comment Check Engine code P0420 Catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
For the record, my car is the EX, with the D17A2 engine, which only has one catalytic converter in the exhaust pipe under the vehicle, so that's not the issue. The D17A6 has two catalysts (one in the exhaust manifold and one in the exhaust pipe). The D17A1 has only the one in the exhaust manifold.

comment Why would a new gas cap cause the “check engine” light to shut off?
"Too old" could just mean they don't have the right OBD scanner. My last car was "OBD1.5", and no one could read it.
