- If I go down in high gear it will slow the car (although I find changing brake pads a LOT cheaper then other stuff), but it will mean the car runs on idle and the oil pump does not push a lot of oil.
- If I do down in low gear I get the revs I need for the oil pump, but that;s not very good on a cold engine
- If I go down in neutral (I like that best), I get down with an engine that has been warming up on idle.
Now I have no problems, it's more an mind experiment. But I would like your ideas on it.
