A bank or a credit union will often float you a loan for your engagement.

I float out clutch in with most of my shifts on my Jeep. Just seems to be a habit I've unconsciously gotten into from driving a big truck more than my personal vehicle. It does seem to be pretty smooth most of the time though.
Is that what it is called. I thought I was just being lazy, but coming in to a stop, I often push the lever out of gear without the clutch, and yes sometimes there is resistance so no go. I always wondered if it was bad for something in the tranny if you push it out while there is still a little resistance.
