it is very normal...you can actually do that while the car is moving also...you just have to match a certain rpm with a certain tire speed for a certain gear. I just wouldnt recommend it since if you don't get it right you grind.

My car does this going from 4-5 gear but none of the other gears,when the engine is off it will go into all the gears.

hey got another observation for you guys?? Anybody ever just turn your steering wheel as far left or right as possible? When I do this in my 96 and hold it there I hear a little whiring noise. Never noticed my power steering make that noise before. But with my Greddy I can't really hear any of my cars "little" noises. I kinda afraid to hear all the "little noises when I get that muffler taken off...man. It also seems to be a little louder on the passenger side. (this observation was made from the driver seat of my car.)

>>Soopastank Just wondering has anybody else ever tried putting their car into gear while parked without pushing the clutch in?

if you mean while the engine is off...yea i've done that before. before i got my license!
i used to sit in my parent's cars and pretend to drive somewhere...until i decided to teach myself how to drive it for real ( i was 13, do i get a cookie?)

i think just about every car with power steering makes that noise. i believe that would be the power steering pump.
