My car's possessed, wheels move...

So i finished up a timing chain install yesterday, went well. I put the engine back together then, decided to start the car so it could warm up by the time i got the passenger front wheel bolted up.

I start the car, put it in neutral and walk around to the passenger side. The hub was spinning. The driver side wheel was still on the ground. I figured it might be left over momentum from starting the car, but when i went to stop it with my hand it took a good amount of force. When i released it, it slowly went back to spinning again.

What am i missing?!? The car is in neutral but the hub, without resistance, is still spinning.

I have noticed it on all my standard cars, some more than others. I think it is just some movement from the gearbox being translated into wheel motion.

I would imagine it's got something to do with fluid being circulated in the trans.

when it super cold out with my car in neutral when I let out the clutch it pulls just a hair forward. Others have confirmed the same thing. I wouldn't worry about it.

it is a manual, so im not sure about the fluid deal. hmm, i suppose its nothing, but i was wondering if there might be a mechanical explanation. i cant figure it out after looking through how stuff works transmissions. http://auto.howstuffworks.com/transmission.htm

no issue at all, its an open diff it will always translate power to the wheel not on the ground

even if you were to put it in gear with one wheel off the ground and slowly let out the clutch the car would not move anywhere, thats how i used to clean my wheels

I think its called Hydo or Fluid Dynamic tension. Basically its the drag Produced by the transmission oil. The input shaft is spinning with the oil producing enough Drag to pull the Output shaft along for the ride with it. Only connected by the Viscosity of the oil between the Two. Producing your PHANTOM diff spin...Still Harmless.
