Happened to see in GM Owners Manual that M6 should be started with shifter in Neutral. I usually start when it's in Reverse since that's how i park it. Just wondering if there's any reason for N starts??
IT L GO said:It must has something to do with Safety or Liability.
I agree. I start in 1st & as soon as she turns over I go to "N" & immediately get off the clutch.Dope said:There is no 'real' reason. Think about it, you have to have the clutch in anyway. Flywheel is disconnected from the tranny, you can be in any gear and it wouldn't make a diff.

Well, you could have a clutch line fail, and lose all the fluid in the clutch system over night. When you get in the car in the morning to crank, the clutch pedal goes to the floor and activates the switch which allows the engine to crank, but the clutch doesn't actually disengage...COUTO1981 said::yeadog: :yeadog:
It would be difficult for you not to know, Only if you were not the last one to drive it, But any way I AGREE , you can never be too cautious :yeadog: :yeadog: :yeadog:
