I'm regaining my confidence. I'll try to remember not to P while driving, though the older I get the more difficult that is.

Coasting in Park... A bad thing -- my car did that for a few feet years ago... Luckily, the park lock is spring loaded in the event of such a mishap (but sure as hell made a lot of noise). My pump was always on (even in park) - but significantly high pressure in neutral or higher
