automatic shifting

h iguys, I have a 1999 impreza outback (ej22) automatic. Now, several questions: my idle is at ~500-600 rpm. is that normal? and, may I shift from d to N and viceversa while the car is moving? or will that blow up my gearbox? thanx a lot, cheers

Your idle speed is right for an auto when engine is warm.

As for shifting From D-N, dunno if it does any harm but i do it all the time when I'm coming to a stop at lights or behind other traffic so i can use the hand brake. So far box is OK.

alright, but my question is shisting while te car is in motion. I mean, like cruising on a street and then shifting to N to allow the car to continue by inertia. is THAT ok?cheers

don't think its advised for an auto, best to allow it to halt before shifting to N

And as i said i do it when i'm coming to a stop to avoid any nasty accidents, so far so good but Stockcar is probably right in that it's not a great idea. I'm driving mine knowing i have a new car on the way in the new year so a busted box is no issue for me. Can't think why you'd want to go from D-N-D whilst in motion anyway?
