Common cars can't do highway speeds (65 mph) in first gear and many have rev limiters.
It would shorten the life span of the engine some.
it is to select "overdrive" gear in transmission. mainly for highway driving. if you have both "D" and "D" with circle around it, use "D" for most driving needs.
The drive gear will turn faster.If the driving gear was twice the size of the drive gear, the drive gear would rotate twice for every revolution of the said driving gear.
OD is a highway gear meant to maintain high speed with less engine effort, you should keep it off during regular street driving to prevent constant shifting in and out. When you are pushing the button it is dropping out of over drive and into the regular high gear, keep it that way until you are on the highway and your transmission will last longer.
Yes under normal driving conditions. In fact most vehicles will operate just fine in fifth gear anytime above 50 mph and will help your gas mileage. The exception would be if you are in mountainous terrain and your vehicle seems to be struggling going up hill. So basically anytime your vehicle operates normally fifth gear is a good choice.
Fifth gear is like overdrive, it is meant for flat open highway driving. It is a gas saving gear so that you can travel at highway speeds at low rpm and your engine is just too small to use that gear at any other time. So use it on flat or slightly down sloped roads, fourth should be your normal gear for from about 45 to 65.
In a vehicle, a driving gear is the gear which is driven by the engine. The driving gear helps control the speed the vehicle is in.
depending on the type of vehicle you own yes it can harm your transmission. i would always use D due to better gas mileage, and smoother driving.
Check fluid level, (90 weight oil)
More than likely a 3.08 gear ratio. which is a highway gear and a little strip very little unless not stock clutch/torque conveter
When driving, there gears you switch to.
When you are driving on the highway / freeway your engine will be revving higher , your maximum speed will be reduced , with your engine revving higher it will most likely be noisier and I'm assuming your gas mileage would be poorer , just like not using your overdrive
its 4th gear in an automatic. its used to cut down on gas usage while driving on the highway or just every day driving. it should automatically engage when in D4 on the shift column.
whaat? well if its automatic, then just put it in d or d4 and it will be automatic. Since it is an old car you don't want to have the engine go at high rpm's usually above 3500. So on the highway keep it at the lowest gear, 5th for a stick. and shift the gear when you hit 3000 rpm's.
Well, driving at highway speeds in any vehicle in 2nd gear, will raise the RPM of the engine, meaning that the engine is working that much harder to maintain the speed. As the engine constantly revs at a higher RPM, it heats up alot quicker, which in the end could do alot of damage to your car. And if its a Lexus, i would advise to SWITCH gears and keep an eye on your RPM and temperature gauge
For normal highway driving unless it is a very long or steep hill you are probably better off to leave it in overdrive or drive depending on the transmission you have. Selecting a lower gear will let the engine help you control your speed but you don't want to overspeed the engine either. So, if you are on a paved road I'd recommend you never go to any gear lower than second gear. If you are driving off road in hilly and rough terrain, low gear may be appropriate then.
Driver use gear 'L' or '2' when driving uphill or downhill which required higher gear ratio to move the uphill. Downhill wise, driver use '2' or 'L' for safety purpose. The low gear ratio will use the high gear ratio to slow down the speed of driving downhill and creating 'pulling' force on your car to safety purposes. Gear '2' can be use for overtaking on the highway too provided at the appropriate speed.
Yes, just use the transmission from a 95-99 DOHC neon. Sohc transmissions had a 3.55, Dohc's had a 3.94 Makes for great acceleration on the highway even in 5th gear.
If your gearbox in the Atos 2003 has a problem of jumping gear when driving, this may be due to a problem with the crankshaft. However, it would be best to have the problem diagnosed by a professional mechanic.Ê
a possibility would be the clutch is going out.
Your Overdrive Button on your shifter is shorting out & melting,Replace it!
Even after pushing the overdrive cancel button again ? to allow the overdrive feature On my Ford Explorer with the column shift automatic , the overdrive switch is on the end of the gear selector lever
Driving in 3rd gear instead of fourth will not affect your transmission as much as your engine. In fact, if you are driving in a manner that causes a lot of shifting between 3rd and 4th, it may be easier on the transmission to leave it in 3rd. If your transmission needs fixed, I don't think it would be from leaving it in 3rd gear. As far as cost, it will vary greatly depending on what needs done and what type of car you have.
Both. A small driving gear and a large driven gear is a force multiplier. Whilst a large driving gear and a small driven gear is a speed multiplier
