Avoid These Things While Driving Your Automatic Transmission Car


Automatic transmission is without a doubt, one of the greatest inventions in the car industry.


Automatic car opens the whole new era for car owners thanks for the safety it provides.


This car type is favored not only by the professional drivers but also by people with basic driving skills.


However, there are certain things that must be avoided while driving a car with automatic transmission.


Sliding the car down a slope in the neutral mode


This habit won’t let you accelerate the car except for slowing it down and it cuts the oil supply, so the transmission does not get the proper lubrication for smooth operation.


It results in significant wear and damage, which is the reason, it is recommended to discard this habit since the repair costs don’t worth the negligible fuel savings.


Revving the engine before switching to the gear


It gives the transmission a massive shock that leads to more friction between the internal components, causing damage to engine parts.


If you frequently rev the engine then the engine will demand more repair and maintenance work.


Shifting gears when the car is rolling


It makes your transmission components to change direction rapidly, wearing out the gearbox at an astounding pace.


Better to use your brakes instead to stop the car and do not shift into the Park mode without pushing the brakes, as it is also bad for the gearbox.


Keeping in neutral at the red light


Many people think that going to neutral can save fuel and protect the drive-line from unnecessary wear.


In fact, the loss is minimal if you push the brakes by keeping the gearbox in Drive mode and the actual damage takes place when you switch into and out of the neutral mode.


Switching into the parking mode before completely stopping the car


Shifting to the Park mode will cause a locking pin to be inserted into a gear attached to the output shaft of the gearbox.


The wheels are also connected to the same shaft and when you lock it and keep the car rolling at the same time, there’s a risk of breaking the locking pin.


Driving hard without warming up the engine


It’s a blunder, especially in the winter season because the oil thickens and moves slowly when the weather is cold.


Allow the fuel a minute to run into the transmission and all of its parts because if you shift into gear and start driving at high speed from the beginning, it will lead to severe internal damage.


Do not keep the fuel tank low


An automatic car largely depends on fluid pressure to run properly as fuel helps the car’s engine and other elements to stay cool and lubricated.


And if you continuously keep the fuel tank low on fluid, then the engine parts will wear out a lot faster.
