JRK5150,
I've been doing neutral engine on coasting in my 2003 Taurus for a couple years with no noticeable problems as of yet. I use the same method as 99METRO. When shifting back into drive while coasting, wait a couple of seconds for the tranny to get back to the right speed then go light on the throttle. I have pushed the coasting speed a bit higher and have had no problems with neutral coasting at 45mph. I'm probably asking for trouble but so far so good. I'd only suggest coasting at this speed if you're comfortable with the possibility of blowing your tranny. JJ
