when I let go the gas peddle the rpm will drop to 1 than it will go back up to the line that is between 1 and 2.

anyone know why it does that?
is something wrong with my engine?

so you learn how drive a stick by yourself? man you are good, my dad live in NY and I live in MA, he couldn't teach me he told me is waste of time my friend won't teach me in their car so...
its easy to learn if someone will teach you.

find a buddy with a winter beater or shitty car and learn on that.

I'm DIEING to have a stick in my car. I leaned on a blue 1967 stingray with a bigblock, man that was fun. It also helps to know exactly what is going on when you drive a manual so brush up on how a manual transmission works if you dont know too much about it... Then you'l understand why grinding or riding the clutch is so bad.

Yah, learn on a beater, I dropped the clutch too fast a couple of times and killed the engine You dont want to F' up a good car during the learning process.

Edit: How automatic transmissions work and How manual transmissions work

I have an auto **hangs head in shame** only becuause my car was a hand-me-down by my parents. But the fact that i have a car prevents me from needing to complain.
Gotta live with what you get. my next car will be a stick for sure.


But, I DO know how to drive manual and i drive it all the time. Two fo my closest friends drive a s13 240SX adn an fd3s RX7-twin turbo.

Both have 5 inch tip xhaust, but i can't help it if it sounds great.

To go back and dutifully answer the original question, the reason the car does that is because its an auto. The drop is caused by the lack of throttle responce and the torque converter being disengaged.
