Default Forward motion in Neutral

Hi guys,

I have a 98 Civic LX 5spd. The clutch is new, 15000km on it.

I had it running the other day while it was jacked up, and
the front tire was spinning while the transmission was in neutral.

Is this supposed to happen?

well it wasn't spinning that fast I am sure...and yes it would be normal.

Due to dynamic friction between the oil and the parts....kind of like a
torque converter but you would have to be able to picture all the parts in
the transmission and know how it all works to understand what I am saying.

Cool thanks. The trannie has actually been rebuilt on warranty,
I just wanted to be sure they put it back together properly.

Yes.

At a temp of -40c, it would be like the car was in gear. Pushing in the
clutch stopped it, if clutch was done correctly, right?

I guess its something I have noticed before, the car wants
to roll forward when i am sitting at a red light in neutral.

As long as this is normal, then that is cool.

That's not what you described before... it's normal when jacked up, but
not so when at traffic light.

Better description is required.. clutch in or out / what happens in
reverse with clutch pushed in? Any problem getting into reverse?

When at a stoplight, its almost un-noticable, but it definitely rolls
forward very slowly when on a flat
surface. This happens when the clutch is out and the car
is in neutral.

I don't have a particularly hard time getting into reverse.
I think its normal for Hondas to be a little sticky about
reverse since reverse has no synchros, right?

Mine (Civic '88 5spd) does the same when it's cold. Usually the first one or
two traffic lights, it pulls forward even if in neutral, with the clutch
released. I always put it down to viscosity of the transmission oil.

Yeah, well, if you're moving you'll get a scratch
