I don't agree with his theory, but at least he's smart enough to understand how a car operates... Unlike you. Spend less time trying to sound smart and more time thinking. You just might find you'll spend less of your life being called names like dumbass.

Im smart enough to know that when in neutral, a car doesnt stall, and power steering does NOT disengage!

Dumbass. You're so predictable. What drives the power steering pump on most cars Twinkie? The engine. If the engine stalls, the power steering pump ceases to operate and you now have no power steering. Is that simple enough for you, Simpleton?

I don't recall anywhere at anytime that anybody said that it did. I think if you pull your head out of your ass and read the post, you'll find that they said it could. Those little letters add up to be words, and words mean things Twinkie. Get over yourself and go back to your advanced ass picking for idiots class.

DUMBASS!

I think what hobo is trying to say is that the word 'stall' doesn't have to be associated with dipping the clutch and letting it up too quickly causing the engine to stall. Instead, if the engine just cuts out for whatever reason, it's classed as stalling....Or atleast that's the way I've always looked at it...Who knows, maybe I'm wrong, too lol

I think that's how the perevious poster was viewing it, too!

it's perfectly legal in all 50 states (even New Jersey) to have your car in Neutral at a stop light. In most states, it IS illegal to COAST in Neutral when the car is moving. THEN the car could be considered out of control. For one thing, the car could stall (causing you to lose your power steering and power brakes) and you'd never even know it
Are you inept, or just a ****ing hobo. "When moving" and then "car could stall" and hes talking about "moving in neutral". Get my drift yet dipshit?

There is NO reason that A car would stall when in neutral gear, moving or otherwise.

Dumbass. Go to the R&M section and start reading about cars that stall in neutral. It happens all the time. If you can't admit that to yourself, then you're even more useless than you've ever been given credit for. Shut up now and stop collecting dipsh*t points.

I really love your sense of humor. OK then, since I am wrong, and you are right, would you care to explain WHY this happens....if you yourself know.

I would have thought cars are far more likely to stall at idle than, say, when compression breaking down a hill.

For instance let's say you have a carby engine and you are going down a steep incline in neutral and the fuel splashes into the bowl vents as you apply the brakes .... the fuel goes down the gullet..... what do you think might happen? Or let's say you have an EFI or carby engine and a near empty tank and you're coasting down a hill...... the engine dies, you panic, apply the brakes couple of times, they then go hard through loss of vacuum, you panic some more, .....

Ok, I'll rephrase it for you. When the engine cuts out....the car has stalled, there could be all manor of reasons WHY the engine cut out. I think you're just associating stalling with it's most common meaning. To physically stall the engine, using the clutch...
