Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!
1. Alway put your car in reverse driving forward downhill
2. Come to full stop before changing directions (left/right)
3. Always neutral drop to launch your car
4. Always a reason to put car in reverse at a stop
5. Always put vehicle in park when the car is at full throttle while driving forward.

Yo anybody got a cup of sugar?
Rante Nevilos
You mean useless the neutral in AT?
Michael L
11:00 You’re over explaining this. Just shift to neutral and apply brakes if your accelerator is stuck. Why would you choose fight the engine lol
Shady Atallah
it's a problem if we are moving on highway and we put neutral than we put drive while moving?
Mario Bmxo
Can you put a car in neutral while driving?

If anyone need 24/7 mechanical help then you can check my channel out and im always around to answer to all your questions.

Awesome ending!...Mangoes! LOL!!! > On a different note, I disagree w/the first point. I live in Florida so it's flat almost everywhere. I've always put my car in N when...for instance... I come w/enough momentum and a Red Light is ahead (once again on a flat road...I'm NOT talking about hills). My RPMs go extremely down. Like it was explained, #1 the gas consumption goes down (why is this a reason NOT to do this, I don't get it). #2 I don't care if I lose some "control" (I've never been in a situation that got me in trouble...and if I need to accelerate, it's just a quick move back to D...yes the RPMs go up a little but just for a second and how excessive this may waste gas also needs to be explained w/solid engineer proof!). #3 I don't know if it's illegal in FL, but so far I've never heard that. I've done this for 15 years on a Mazda Protege 5 (199,000miles) and I've never had a transmission problem...so, I'm gonna trust my guts on this one and keep on doing it!

What about putting it in park at a red light? Also when reversing, switch it to neutral. Then to drive when you’ve done reversing in neutral. Setting the parking break while pressing the button. Lastly switching to Low when turning and approaching a stop sign instead of using brakes. Is doing this all good? Automatic transmission.

1. Don’t buy an automatic

Need a second channel titled Mangos Explained

As in don't do anything I did in my first car. Like anything.

Reasons WHY you should shift into neutral (or manually shift) when coasting:

1) Because it's fun and provides variation from the otherwise mind-numbing driving routine
2) It keeps the driver engaged in actually driving
3) Fuel economy is better (how much better is debatable)... The inertial load of spinning the transmission or turning the engine faster than idle consumes kinetic energy
4) Using the transmission to downshift and slow reduces wear on brakes
5) Downshifting can slow the vehicle dramatically without giving the a-hole who is tailgating you any warning brake lights

One thing you should never do to an automatic transmission is get into a vehicle that has one.

if you are driving on D1 (higher torque) is it going to do any damage if you switch to D while in motion in an automatic car? thanks
Rocky Balboa
Is that a Lexus IS 350?

Hi. Great explanation. What about engaging the park brake when the car is not moving but it is still in Drive gear?
Richard Golden-DeWitt
most of today's cars don't have torque converters

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.
