How do you pulse and glide in your particular car ?
Do you shift into neutral while driving along, and then shut off your engine ?
( I never do this )
I will drive at 50 mph or so, I shift into Neutral and coast.
The car goes down in speed quite fast, and at under 45 it shudders and revs suddenly when I shift back into Drive.

I rarely ( hardly ever ! ) coast any more out of fear of damaging the transmission.

I was surprised to see that the car seems to coast slowly when going downhill.
I never knew about how an automatic transmission drags on a car when going downhill untill i read about it on EM.
