hey guys, i was wondernig what is the best way to step on the gas pedal? i know this questions kinda seems strange but, how should u really treat your car? like i am a strange driver ill step on the gas and ill immediately let go of it, when i just want to cruise and slow down, but is that bad? does that strain the car more than by letting go of the gas slowly rather than just going 4000 rpm and then letting go of it?

the reason is because well my car is an automatic TC and i have 1100 miles and i havent gotten my oil change yet. and when i start my engine, for the first minute or two my car will shake slightly, it is really hard to notice but if u listen carefully and feel the car shake it feels as if it is choking or misfiring. what could be the reason for this? my habit style of driving? the way i gas and let go of the gas too quickly?

No... Lo bux said you don't have to do that anymore... 5000 miles is fine.

Sometimes the car shudders just because the engine hasn't warmed up yet, and when running things like the rear defroster also tends make the shuddering a lil more noticeable to start. It's nothing big I don't think, after the car is warmed up, like ten minutes after driving, it shouldn't do that. As for the gas pedal thing, it may be a waste of gas to accelerate and decelerate a lot when there is no traffic ahead of you. I'd think it'd be best for your gas mileage you try and maintain a constant speed at 3500 rpm the most. The exception being the highway I guess, because of the short gearing if you want to maintain a speed higher than 65, you may break that rpm guideline.

Hmmm, good point, it should probably be under the talk section or something. I didn't even notice, despite being blatantly obvious that it was out of place.
