if you are nice and slow with your clutch you can take off from a dead stop and work your way through a couple gears without ever touching the gas. I know i can sneak my way into 5th coasting at a low roll without using any gas. Its something i found out while trying to drop someone off without letting anyone hear my car.

I may try this as a new hyper-miling technique. 30mpg here I come.

Mine does this too, the only difference is that its also accompanied by a high idle (2000 RPM) and a shifting problem.

Most signs point to IAC or TPS as the culprit.

Hmmm, don't know how mine would react shifting through gears at idle. I am pretty sure it wouldn't react well at all. With the Fidanza 3.2 there is no clutch slipping, its on or its off. Really, though, all the way to 5th at ~700 rpm? Gonna go try this.

Do you have to slip the clutch like crazy? I can't imagine that's too good for the face of the clutch or flywheel. If you don't have to slip it though, kudos!

Did it. All the way to 5th with no gas. It shook a little to get 3rd going, but it went. I don't ever want to do that again, though, it was really hard not to touch the gas. It was like I was committing a sin!

??? Put the car in gear and ease out on the clutch without giving it gas, once the rpm come back up to normal after car is moving, shift to second and so on.

Its just feeling the clutch. Just like your slower with the clutch when you let off from a light and droppin it at the strip. Any car can do it and anyone SHOULD be able to. But its horrible for your clutch.
