Why would anyone with an automatic neutral drop launch their car!? 💀

Is engine braking in an automatic transmission harmful? I have a 6 speed 2016 Hyundai Sonata Sport.

great job thanx, but i have a question, is it danger to push or pull my vehicle for a distance if the engine stops for any reason that i couldn't start it up ?
The first reason isnt even an issue.....
I mean if someone doesn't know how to drive an automatic then maybe they shouldn't have a driver's license
My volvo v70 aisin ft-80s (gearbox) shifts to neutral when I drive down the hill.
When I'm running low on fuel I like to put my vehicle in neutral and turn the key off to conserve fuel when the Nascar swerve stops working for me. Then I start it back up, put it in drive and get after it to make it the last stretch to the gas station. Works almost everytime. I started carrying a gas can today, so I might not have to worry about it anymore as long as I remember to keep gas in the can.
Still works for overheating though, as it cools the radiator while coasting. Then start it up and it cycles the (cool) coolant through the engine and brings the temp down some. I just keep doing that on and off to get where I'm going as needed.
Also put it in park going 45 mph or so in a old Caravan to free up the governor. Rattles the park pawl enough to annoy the crap out of it and it starts shifting again.
Someday I'll quit driving junk...

Some people put it in neutral just to rev the engine
Make up your mind kid. "Don't put your car in neutral, you lose control." "Do turn your car off when you're idling at a light. It saves gas."
Rachel Campos
loved the how to eat a mango 🥭 tutorial
Pretty sure going over speed limit is illegal where he lives but I'm guessing he doesn't care 😂
Can I engine brake on automatic, or will it noticeably shorten life on my transmission? Also can I shift to park when I am at a stoplight or will it shorten the life noticably and I should just hold the brake?
Werner Eschbach
The part of "cutting fuel to the engine" is interesting. Does the same happen for standard (stick shift) cars ? In other words: there is a red light ahead, should I cost in gear, foot off the gas and hope that my electronic cuts the fuel, or is it better to get out of gear and coast towards the light - essentially having my engine in idle?
Thanks in advance
I drive a standard.... i coast in neutral as often as the terrain allows me.
7:30 a car in "drive" at a stop is fine for the transmission but what about the engine? It's going to be low rpm so possibly not proper lubrication. I switch to neutral and rev it up 2k rpm from time to time when doing long stops
Coasting in neutral:
A slow slope can be more suitable for that but still not recommended because of the other reason
My transmission doesn't go into drive if I don't press the brake so if I select N I won't be able to select drive unless I have my foot on the brake and this is dangerous because you may surprise the drivers behind you
is the first one very bad or is it just the thing whit fuel and maybe not legal?

In this video, Sam from http://www.professionalfleet.com in East Lansing Michigan will explain the difference between a transmission flush, transmission service and a transmission drain and fill.
Do you know the difference? How much should you pay for each service?
The price you pay directly effects the service you are receiving.

Dangers of flushing transmission when over 100k miles. We will also cover coolant or radiator flushes as well.

We have found most customers do not know the difference and assume they paid for something that they did not get.
