Advice 1: How to ride the machine

Cars with automatic transmission firmly entered the lives of motorists due to the ease in management. Although many owners of cars with manual transmission claim that there is nothing safer and more convenient, more and more drivers are switching on the car with automatic transmission. Most driving schools despite changes in the legislation, allowing to obtain a special license to drivers of cars with automatic transmission, continue to train their clients to travel only on mechanics. So many, buying a car with automatic transmission, don't know how to ride the machine.
How to ride the machine


The beginning of the movement when riding in a car with automatic transmission

As a car mechanic to drive a car with a gun, you need to start and warm up engine. The colder it is outside, the more time you must wait before driving.

It is important to remember that to start the car with the automatic transmission only when the gear lever in neutral position N or P.

To start, you should switch to the appropriate mode. To drive forward - put the lever in D, backward. Press gas it should only once felt a slight jolt, signifying that the machine was removed from "neytralke".

It is also important not to forget to remove the car from the hand brake.

How to drive a car with a gun: pedal

In car with automatic transmission, unlike cars with a manual transmission has two pedals: gas and brake. Control the machine only need one foot, holding it on the gas pedal. The other leg at this time must be to the left of the brake on a special stand. Otherwise, in the event of road hazard and need to brake you can press the gas pedal coasting. To brake in a car with automatic transmission, remove the foot off the gas and push down on the brake pedal.

How to drive on cars with automatic: transmission

The automatic transmission has several modes.

When the lever is in position R, the drive wheels and the shaft is locked. This mode is used when parked and long stops. Switch to parking should be only after a full stop. To translate the lever in this position, you need to hold the brake. If you include P while driving the car with a gun, a car can break.

If car put in Park on a relatively flat surface, using the handbrake can be optional. If the slope is steep, then removing the load on the mechanisms of auto you can optionally use the handbrake.

To put the car with a gun in P mode with the handbrake, proceed as follows:

- press on the brake, pull the Parking brake;

to release the brake (the car can slightly pull);

- press brake and put the lever in R.

To play with handbrake, you need to switch the box mode of motion, and then release the handbrake while holding the brake.

To turn back on the machine with the machine, it is necessary to completely stop the car and hold the brake, move the gear lever to R position.

A lot of controversy among those who do not know how to ride on the machine, about the situation of N.

This mode is used to move the machine short distances, for example, in the service, with the engine running. Many believe that when coasting downhill to save gas, including neutral, but it is not. As at the end of the slope, you must again turn on the engine, and this gives additional load on the box. Also, do not put the car in N when stopping, e.g. at traffic lights.

To ride the machine at any speed, you need to use the mode D.

On a bad road or when towing the car it is possible to include box in position 2. This will allow you to switch the car to the transmission higher than the second.

If you are going to disperse the car up to 80 km/h, then use limit gear is not recommended.

If road conditions do not allow travel at a speed more than 15 km/h, you can include ReDim L, then the car will only go in first gear.

In cars with a gun might have a special mode OverDrive (O/D). If this button is recessed, the vehicle may switch on the fourth speed. Such a regime need to move on protracted climbs and overtaking, when you need quick acceleration.

On cars with automatic transmission there is also a mode kik-Daun. It is enabled if there is a sharp press on the gas pedal. Thanks to this, the machine is sharply accelerated, however, moving from the spot, to use this function is not recommended.

In SNOW mode it is convenient to travel in the winter. With this mode, the machine starts moving with the second speed, which reduces slippage.

Thus, to ride a machine simply. The main thing - practice.


Advice 2 : How to drive a car with automatic transmission

During a conversation with the specialists at auto repair, specializing in maintenance and repair of vehicles equipped with automatic transmission, it was found that in most cases, faulty automatic transmission gear arise through the fault of the drivers. More precisely, in technical terms, the unit fails because of ignorant exploitation of such vehicle in different road conditions.

  • - car with automatic transmission.
The statement about the fact that a car with a manual transmission more reliable compared to "machinee", the last being challenged by very powerful arguments.
An indisputable fact: the owner with the practice of driving conventional cars moved to various circumstances in the car with automatics, as a rule, do not bother to study the peculiarities of management of such vehicles. And driving the "old way" just becomes cause of failure of the automatic transmission.
The translation of the gear lever-the machine in operating position only when the brake pedal is pressed, and the movement starts after switching gearsand (felt the characteristic jolt).
Moving in terms of city limits, when you have to stand in traffic jams or wait for a permissive signal of the traffic light, against the advice of the "experts" do not put the lever in neutral. Remember – you have the automatic transmission. "Neutral" in such situations is relevant for mechanical transmission, but not for your machine.
While driving on a long downhill most drivers of classic cars to save fuel is transferred to the mode "roll" by turning off transmissionin a box-the automatic lubrication of the surfaces of friction parts is the oil pump which it is installed. After turning off gearand off the drive of an oil pump and lubricating oil supply stops but the torque continues to be transmitted from the drive wheels of the automatic transmission. About the consequences of such driving can be a long time not to talk – is the inevitable failure of the box-machine.
"Reverse" or otherwise back it is strictly forbidden to include, as long as the machine does not stop completely. The technique is the following:- Tap the brake pedal;
Fully stop the vehicle;
- Enable "reverse";
- Feeling the push start.
There is still a lot of nuances of driving with an automatic transmission, which are learned by the driver during actual driving. But even compliance with these recommendations will prolong the service life of your machine.
How to drive a car with a manual box. Driving a car with manual transmission requires a complicated, but coordinated movements of the hands and feet. Though at first it may seem complicated and intimidating, rest assured that after a little practice you will be able to shift gears.

Advice 3 : How to learn to ride on the machine

In recent years, cars with automatic transmission began to prefer not only women but also men. To move around the city on this car is much more convenient than the "mechanics", and in order to drive comfortably, you have to learn to manage "automatic".
How to learn to ride on the machine
If you purchased a car with an automatic transmission (automatic transmission), do not think that all problems on this end. To manage such a car is really simple, but first you have to get used to this machine, to gain some skills in management.
In cars with automatic transmission only two pedals, not three, like a machine with the mechanics. One pedal is responsible for the "gas" and one for "brake". At the same time pushing them is not recommended, it can lead to breakage, so just train yourself to press them with one foot. The other leg while driving keep on a special stand that simulates the pedal. This will help you to wean from the clutch pedal to "mechanics".
The speed switch knob on the automatic gearbox when driving in normal mode, put on “D” and do not try to move it in the other modes unnecessarily. For example, standing at a traffic light, put the car in “N” or “P”, it will not help to save gas and not make life easier for your steel horse. Try to keep on the steering wheel with both hands.
If you are in the habit of "mechanics" trying to grasp the handle switching speeds, make it touching, you understand - that something is wrong. To do this, adjust the material from which made the finish on the handle. If the handle of your previous car had leather, wrap a pen with fur or put on her inflatable rubber ball.
Before you leave the city, try first to practice on the racetrack or drive on the highway a few tens of kilometers. This will help you better learn the management lessons of the new car. Finally learning to drive a car with automatic transmission, you will truly appreciate the benefits of your vehicle.

Advice 4 : How to drive a car with automatic transmission

Driving a car with automatic transmission, of course, more comfortable than its counterpart with manual gearbox. But in order for the automatic box has served long and reliably, you must follow certain rules and take into account some of the nuances.
How to drive a car with automatic transmission
Before starting the engine ensure that the selector lever is in position P or N. an Attempt to start the engine under other provisions of the lever in the best case will lead to the fact that the electronics will lock the ignition; at worst, to breakage of the machine. In the cold season immediately after the start start selector switch in all modes, staying in each one for 2-3 seconds, that will warm up the box. Then shift to D and hold for 2-3 minutes the car brake without touching the gas pedal.
Make a habit to press the brake pedal before the selector lever from position P or N to D. And only after a characteristic mild shock and reduce idle rpm, release the brake and drive smoothly utaplivaja the accelerator. Do not try to move to a dynamic driving style, while the oil in the gearbox reaches operating temperature.
If you are used to driving cars with a manual transmission, don't be tempted to manually shift the transmission when accelerating or go to a neutral speed when braking. Until then, until you get used to it, lifting your left leg away from the pedals to the old habit do not press the brake instead of the clutch. In city mode keep the selector in D or 3, trying as little as possible to use Overdrive ОD. When driving on the rise in other serious conditions, use range 2.
While translating the selector lever from one position to another on-the-go never switch the modes P and R to a complete stop. The mode N during the motion is allowed only when absolutely necessary, such as when engine braking. If accidentally switched on invalid mode, immediately reduce the speed to idle, then re-place the selector lever in position D. Try not to exceed the permissible engine speed.
In the presence of the modes 3, 2 and 1 engine braking is carried out with their help. To do this, release the gas pedal and move the selector lever from position 3 to position 2. After reducing speed to 50 km/h and below, according to the same algorithm switch to mode 1. Please note that transport with automatic transmission the engine braking is significantly lower than in the case of a manual transmission.
Use the same modes and for fast acceleration. Move the selector lever from D position or 3 to position 2, making sure the revs on the tachometer. In the presence of a sport mode turn it on. When fully pressed the gas pedal box itself will go into a mode kik-Daun, in which the transmission will switch later to maximize the set speed. Automatic exit from this mode is possible only when the engine maximum allowable speed. For forced shutdown mode kick-down, just release the accelerator pedal. Note that frequent use of this mode reduces the life of the automatic transmission.
Before turning to reset the speed and enforce a reduced speed, use kick-down or range 2 selector. On a sequential automatic transmission manually lower the gear.
During short stops must hold the vehicle brake. If during the stop selector switch to the P position, brake use is optional. However, if the machine is on a slope, be sure to apply the Parking (hand) brake. At first, apply the Parking brake, and then – mode of R. the Range of N include only for long-term Parking lots and in traffic and heat to improve cooling of the box.
Don't be afraid of a short wheelspin on slippery roads. The box wears out long slipping. So if you get stuck, use the build-up of the car, alternately switching step-down from mode 1 to mode R and back. For riding with a full load or heavy trailer use step-down modes 2 or 3. The acceleration in this case, start in mode 1, and when it reaches 40 km/h switch.
Find out in advance from the user the maximum range and the tow speed of the car. As a rule, cars with a gun is allowed to tow in N Yes the distance is not more than 50 km at a speed not exceeding 50 km/h. If necessary, further immerse the tow car on a tow truck, post drive wheels or disconnect the transmission.
Follow the service box. Monitor oil level, add if necessary, note leaks. Observe the deadlines for the replacement of oil and filter. An active style of driving or operating the vehicle in severe conditions, change the oil twice as often. Diagnosis and repair of automatic boxes actually spent only in specialized organizations.
