DFCO parameters vary with the car. My '02 Nissan Sentra SE-R didn't enter DFCO unless it was in gear, engine rpms >2500, and relative TPS was at idle position (11?). That meant I had to be going faster than 65 mph in 6th gear for DFCO to kick in.

My '06 Scion xB, OTOH, is a DFCOing pleasure. It enters DFCO when in gear, engine rpms >1500, and relative TPS at idle (11). That means it goes into DFCO at any speed >35 mph in 5th gear.

FWIW, I've never had to blip the throttle of either of those cars (both manual trannys) to enter DFCO
