Well two wrong thing bulk.

1. Putting an automatic trans into neutral effectively cuts off line pressure. When you put it in drive, you up the pressure. This actually causes more stress to your trans.

2. Keeping an manual in gear, and holding the clutch, is effectively feathering the clutch that whole time. If you know how the parts look, and function, you will understand that a pushed in clutch pedal, does not always detach fully. You still have slight surface to surface contact. Going into neutral is better. When you engage the clutch, all you are really doing is spinning the oil in the trans. This is actually good for it. As all components are still getting lubed, even though you are standing. This also does not wear any clutch parts.
