hi, can i have my 2003 l322 range rover zf5hp24 auto towed in neutral ?

My VW GTD (Diesel equivalent to the GTi) has an eco mode which automatically puts the DSG gearbox into neutral. Very disconcerting at first, having always driven manual cars.
mrthunderbird5
Thank you 🙏 for that tutorial 👍

I think a lot of old timers put the car in neutral at a stoplight because they have memories of the car dying as it's trying to roll forward with your foot on the brake. You also get to thinking what if my foot slips off the brake for one reason or another and I plow into the guy ahead of me? Best to put the car in neutral. Less stressful.

Can you do one on cvt

1. It's only illegal if you get caught
2. I always put my car park to coast down the highway
3. I put my car in park at red lights and prop my foot up. (Because I'm lazy, not for fuel economy)
Blake Johnson
Wait so mechanically there’s nothing bad that will come from putting my car into neutral?
David davids
Is the car you’re driving a Toyota?

Hello there. Thanks for making this video ! Great stuff! What would be the best way to apply your hand brake when you park your car. I see people leaving their handbrake loose and leave the car hanging on the park gear. Is that damaging to the transmission? And then when they try to shift from Park to drive it’s harder to shift and generates a clunk. Do you explaining what’s happening there and what’s the best way to apply your park gear and hand brake. Thanks

One benefit of switching to neutral/park from drive is if your sitting still for an extended period of time (ie: drivethru, waiting on a train, etc). If stationary and in drive you are creating a lot of excessive heat in the torque convertor. A lot easier on it if you are in neutral or park.

Exception: if you put your transmission in Neutral you can pretty much coast from Lake Tahoe to Sacramento, staying around the speed limit. It's a very constant grade downhill of just the right %.

Now, what about CVT and dual clutch automatics?

Some people waits while the red light is on in neutral and parking brake to rest their feet. How is that bad? It's faster to go back to drive grear when the light turns green.

I must ask something. What if you needs to stop on a hill. What is the correct order to park the car.
1. Handbrake on
2. Put it in Park?

Or am I false?
Jonathan Gairing
I neutral dropped my grandAM 20 years ago so much when I was a new driver. Thought it was so cool lol. Now I just want to apologize to my parents for the maintenance to their car. Sorry Mom!
Ricky Henriques
I'm curious about the amt transmission, can you please make a video of it?

I mean, if you need to have automatic transmission cars explained to you, odds are you probably shouldn't have a driver's license.

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.
