What is the top speed for an automatic transmission car?
In Top Speeds
But really most auto equipped cars loose several % off the top speed compared to their manual equipped equivalent.

im not sure,but i have a 98 Chevy Tahoe and when i go to take off in it,it slips.i have taken it to a repaire place and they changed the transmission fluid and filter,but it still does it. Answer Hi, I have been having the same problem and I was told that the speed sensor is going. Hope that help…s. Ron Answer Is this happening when you try to go just after coming to a stop? (like at a stop sign) The transmission may be hesitating to shift into first from a higher gear. There shouldn't be a noticeable delay in a properly operating transmission. May be the bands in the lower gears too. Get if fixed for real this time. I hope that it's still under warranty. Does the repair shop have a warranty on their repairs? Try to get them to reduce the price since you have already paid to get it fixed the first time and they didn't do it properly. Absolutely do not pay the full price. You have already forked out money. They need to do the job right this time. And don't let them pad the bill to make it higher just to make you pay the full amount anyway. ( Full Answer )
Answer . I have a Explorer '95, every so often my Over Drive light blinks, I had this error looked at by proffessionals with there Snap-On Computer. For me the error indicated that my transmission speed sensor was "missing", I just had a new one installed a year prior to this when my transmission… was re-built. The error read that the computer could not read third gear, or the speed of my Explorer. So, then in front of my they reset my computer in the truck, I didn't have that error for sometime no it comes back every 100 miles or so. Well, i couldn't be going to the shop every month to have the computer reset, so I disconnected the battery for about 5mins. this seems to be my temp solution until I find out what is wrong. But, it looks to me that after about 5mins, with the ground disconnected the capasitors drain, and all the computers reset, and the error codes clear.. But this is a major pain if you have an alarm, mine is connected to the horn, so everytime I reconnect the ground wire the horn blasts me in the ear. ( Full Answer )
Answer . Micro cars, that is, 2 seat cars with sub 1.3 litre engines, about 140 kph (85 mph). Small cars, 4 seats such as Toyota Corolla, 170 kph (106 mph). Medium cars, 5 seats such as BMW 318i, 230 kph (142 mph). Large cars, for example, Lexus IS 500, 250 kph (155 mph). Sports cars, such as… Aston Martin DB8, 280 kph (174 mph), BMW M3 285 kph (178 mph) Chrysler Viper 273 kph (170 mph). Supercars like the Porsche GT3, 305 kph (190 mph). Hypercars such as Pagani Zonda, 370 kph (235 mph) Bugatti Veyron 407kph (253 mph) Ultima Aero 412 kph (257 mph). 99% of every day cars fit somewhere between 170 kph and 230 kph so the average top speed of most cars would be 200 kph (124 mph). Suvs, popular in the USA would average around 190 kph (118 mph) as they have large frontal areas and high drag. This is despite large power outputs.. The true top speed of any particular car would occur on a smooth, flat, straight road with no wind and cool conditions. The engine needs to be freshly serviced and be able to produce maximum power. The tyre pressures need to be the maximum for that vehicle. All windows need to be wound up and the air conditioning off. Drive safely and within the law at all times! ( Full Answer )
Hi here is the asnswer, Carina and Corolla of Toyota are equiped with this trasnsmission on 68-73 years. Also GM used two speed automatic transmissions on some cars in the 60s, and one was even used in an indy car type racer about the same time. My first car was a 1963 four door Chevy Impala equipp…ed with a relatively low horsepower 6 cylinder engine and a 2-speed automatic transmission. 63 Impalas became very popular and collectable, especially with low-riders. But I had my (er, actually my mom had hers) around 1968, in New Jersey...land of quickly worn out cars due to salt on winter roads and rough roads in general. So to us it was just an 'old car' in 1968, and possibly the least collectable of all 63 Impalas due to the 4-door body style and lack of power. It was very slow on acceleration between the small engine and 2-speed transmission (that felt like power was being transmitted by rubber bands.) ( Full Answer )

Answer . yes you can ,but you will need to buy and have installed, a new flywheel, bell housing, transmission, clutch, and drive shaft. then you will also have to have installed a clutch pedal inside the car. and to top it off, it the car has a computer, you will need to buy a computer to match …a standard shift instead of an automatic shift. cheaper just to change cars . ( Full Answer )
Answer . It is very complicated ! it works on hydraulic oil pressure.that force cutch packs to drive various internal gears.The engine is conected to the Automatic trans mission by means of a flex plate ,sonme people refer to it as a flywheel. The flex plate is bolted to the torque converter of t…he the transmission.the torque converter drives the oil pump in side the transmission this supplies the hydraulic pressure to the various clutch packs as the gearshift slector is moved to the various gear selections.the torque converter also ha a proccess that allows it to dissengage at an idle and to engageby means of internal hydraulic oil friction asthe engine speeds up . there is an out put shaft on the transmission that sends the rotating energy through the various gears and corrosponding clutch packs to the drive shaft ,differential and to the wheels.like i said it is very complicated this is a very simple explaination.

From the factory the over-speed Chime on the 2004-2006 GTO is set to alarm at 130 mph. The factory calibration is set to limit the top speed to 155 mph electronically. Most GTOs have a 2 mph offset, where the speedometer reads 2 mph faster than actual speed. Fuel cut off does not start until reachin…g the stated 155 mph. Some owners have claimed to reaching up to 168 mph with the factory calibration. ( Full Answer )
How to use overdrive . Generally speaking, overdrive (O/D) is the highest gear in the transmission. On most cars the automatic transmission has 3 speeds and Overdrive (forth speed). Overdrive allows the engine to have less rpm with higher speed in order to have better fuel efficiency. When you sw…itch it on, you allow the transmission to shift into overdrive mode after the certain speed is reached (usually 30 - 40 mph depending on the load). When it's off, you limit transmission shifting by third speed. In normal driving condition the overdrive should be always on. You may need to switch it off when driving in mountainous area or towing a trailer. . [The automatic transmission automatically shifts from OD to the 3-th gear when it feel more load. When it feels less load it shifts back to the O/D, but under certain conditions, e.g: driving uphill or towing a trailer, the transmission can not decide to stay in OD or to shift into 3-th speed and it starts to shift back and forth. That's the time you may switch it off and help the transmission to decide.] . You also may need to switch it off when you want to slowdown using the engine braking, for example, driving downhill. [For more details, check your owner's manual] ( Full Answer )
The first automatic transmission available to the general public was Oldsmobile's Hydra-Matic system. The automatic transmission was based on technology developed by German engineers. Oldsmobile first developed the Hydra-Matic system in 1938, and first made available to the general public on all m…odels in 1940, as an available option for $57. ( Full Answer )
You cant change the actual manual transmission into an Auto howeverr you can take out the manual and put in an automatic transmission instead.. You can but it will take time and can carry a high price. The 'simplest' way is to get the equivalent engine/gearbox as a complete unit and do the transpla…nt. If you can get a donor vehicle so much the better. There are always those little bits you need that are difficult to source. ( Full Answer )
If its a race car your talking about with a Yamaha 1200 or 1250cc motor and 5 speed transmission, they can run about 120 or 125 depending on the rear end gear. but they usually would never get close to this because their either running on a 1/4 or 1/2 mile track. The bigest track I've ever ran mine …on is a road course. I cant remember how big it was but we could get up to about 90. ( Full Answer )
Cars are designed to have a top speed for safety reasons. An engine can only spin at so many RPMs before things start to fly off or destroy themselves. The same holds true for the rest of the moving parts on a car. Tires can only handle so many RPMs before the rubber starts to come apart. The faster… things spin the greater the centrifical force. ( Full Answer )
It depends on the vehicle. Some vehicles can not be towed with all4 wheels moving without damaging the transmission. It should bestated in the owner's manual.
US car production was dealt a setback because of World War II. In 1940 pre World War II the US produced 4,680,000 cars. Although each decade in history is different the decade of the 1940's is by far the most unusual in U.S. automobile history. This was the only period of time when automobile produc…tion stopped for a period of 3-4 years. No cars were manufactured after 1942 due to the advent of World War II. Production for civilians did not resume until 1946 .Early 1940's saw the first time luxury cars started rolling off a production line. A car showed the wealth and status of its owner. Cars like the Delahaye 135 convertible whose top speeds reached 95 mph , the Delahaye was the ultimate 1940 luxury car. . Source: http://www.anythingaboutcars.com/1940scars.html. _ After World War II, Toyota was kept busy making trucks, but by 1947 it began making the Model SA, called the Toyopet. The Toyopet was not powerful and had a low top speed -- 55 mph from a 27 horsepower engine -- but it was designed to be cheap, and to handle the rough roads of postwar Japan.. source: "http://www.anythingaboutcars.com/1950scars.html" ( Full Answer )
If its a light load, if it will be frequently used its worth getting a transmssion cooler to save the trannys life. Its also a good idea when towing to drive with the over drive turned off. Overdrive isn't meant to handle a load, just to freewheel to save gas on the highway. Towing a load with the o…verdrive on can burn out the overdrive. ( Full Answer )
Why would a car jerk at speeds over 50 mph and directly before coming to a complete stop on an automatic transmission?
Check the front brake pads to insure that they aren't digging intothe rotor. Check the wheel bearings, and check front end parts forwear.
EDIT: A Newer crown Victoria Police Interceptor will max out at 120 because of the speed limiter. The older models had drive-line failure during high speed (130-140mph) driving so they added a limiter. (police interceptor crown Victoria's made before 2006 have a speed limiter set at 140 mph) All… true Police cars should have a tire speed rating of W (168 mph) so that is not a factor in its top speed. the charger based police cars come in 2 flavors, The wild and crazy 5.7L Hemi V8 and the calm 3.5L V6. The V8 has the speed limiter set at 146mph. The V6 at 137 mph. Also The Chevrolet Tahoe SUV (some areas have them, I know mine does) Has a max speed of a 133mph and i think this is drag limited The Chevrolet Impala police car has a max speed of 139mph with the 3.9L V6 But needess to say it is the wrong idea to run from the cops because if they catch you the circumstances will be worse for you than if you just stopped in the first place. But at 145 mph cops can't read your plates...so just keep going (in 5 sec you will be more than 2 miles away already). ( Full Answer )
Semi automatic transmission is usually the one which is fitted into a car with manual transmission. The manual transmission requires pressing clutch to change gears or to stop. If you don't press clutch pedal and change the gear, it will do a serious damage to your gear box. In semi automatic transm…ission system, the clutch is very much in place, but the only difference is you don't have to do it manually. It has a motor and an electronic device that senses the speed, the gear change and brake pressure and then presses or depresses clutch automatically. Advantage of this system is you can take the pleasure of automatic transmission in a manual vehicle. The semi automatic systems however has some flaws. If need to get used to it a bit. You have keep rpm pretty high in this system. Taking a start motion in first gear could be a problem. If rpm is on a bit lower side, you clearly feel the lag while driving. It is a system best suited to physically challenged drivers who have problem using one of the feet. Of course, the better alternative is fully automatic transmission that does away with the clutch altogether. But is far more expensive and is available only in select models. ( Full Answer )
if u can drive manual do it and if u cant still rock the car in auto but you will be missing out on something really good u really cant get all the power out at the same speed and little civics will beat u up
It depends on the car and the equipment used to drive it. . Most muscle cars lack a governor or a speed-control device, which allows the car to reach its max speed potential. The typical top speed of a muscle car during their prime era, was around 130-135mph. This is all the engine could push the c…ar with the stock transmission without over-revving and damaging the motor. The cars were not meant for top speed as much as they were made for quickness and throttle response. ( Full Answer )

Are automatic transmissions dangerous There seems to be a lot of accidents where people loose control of cars with automatic transmissions especially whilst parking or slow speed manoevering?
Automatic transmissions are absolutely not dangerous. Any accidents not related to mechanical failure (which are very rare) are purely the drivers fault and have nothing to do with the car itself.
This depends on the horse power. Less powerful cars with A/T mare mostly 2-5 mph slower than the same car with M/T.. If you mean faster acceleration, in daily use a modern manual shifted car has no chance to beat the same car with A/T. On the paper there is still a slightly advantage for the M/T, b…ut in typical take over manouvres you just need to kick down while the M/T owner still is looking for the right gear... ( Full Answer )
buggati veryon goes 407kmh max and it is record. . That's the current record for an unmodified production vehicle, Top fuel dragsters and funny cars currently reach speeds around 330 mph (531 kph) and the world land speed record for a wheeled vehicle is 763.035 mph (1227.986 kph). There is no real… answer to the question because the top speed of a vehicle is determined primarily by power output, aerodynamics, wind resistance and weight, and that varies with every vehicle and varies every time you drive it.

Would a 3 speed automatic transmission with no overdrive in a 1.8L 4 cylinder Chevy Prizm lead to more wear and tear on the car when driving at highway speeds?
Unless the 3rd speed is already an overdrive, yes. What matters isthe highest gear keeps your engine RPM around 2500 rpm at around 70mph.
The first fully automatic transmission was the Hydro-matic, offered in the 1940 Oldsmobile. There were semi-automatics (GM's Automatic Safety Transmission and Chrysler's Fluid Drive) available in 1937.
it is around 40 mph slow ain't it u must have had foot on brake not accelerater. try 91 mph
In most automatic cars, in Great Britain where I live, all you have to do is put the car into D (Drive) and push the accelerator. This will automatically change the gears of the car up and down.
bugati veyron has the top speed in the world. it has speed of 497 km/hrs
An overdrive transmission allows for less engine speed and thusgreater engine economy. When in overdrive the transmission has agear drive of less than then the engines speed. In the GeneralMotors 4L60E Hydramatic transmission for example, in overdrive gear(4th) the transmission has a ratio of . 70. …This means for each 1rotation of the crankshaft, the output shaft of the transmissionrotates . 7.

They were manual transmission's Automatics did not really hit the scene until the late 1950s
by flat tow i assume you mean with all four wheels on the road and rolling. if it is front wheel drive, although many people do this behind rv's, if not a wise idea. unless the engine is running, and thereby turning the transmission, the oil is not circulated in the transmission. no oil circulati…on, no oil supplied to the bearings that will be turning as you roll down the road. you run the risk of burning you output seals and even you transmission. take the drive wheels off the road with a dolly or trailer. if you are referring to a rear wheel drive vehicle, simply detach the drive shaft, tie it securely up and have a good trip. if you have no mechanical savvy and you still insist on doing any of this without the proper precautions i spole about get a tow attachment on the front of your car to be towed behind whatever the tow vehicle is and have a good trip. just make sure you put the car in neutral. dont be surprised if you need a trans after doing this a couple times though.

A fully automatic car doesn't need any action at all to change gear, a semi automatic car can have no clutch pedal, just a gear stick which you pull backwards to gear up or pedals behind the steering wheel.
Yes. If you have a pickup with a standars trans & a 302 engine & the engine goes bad, you can replace it with several enginesm such as a 6 cylinder 300 CID or any that will fit under the hood. You will likely need to change motor mounts or even move them, or stick a 302 from a Torino ( or whatever c…ar has a 302). If you are running a standard, look into the High Torque cam. They'll deliver more torque & higher MPG. You'll just need to put a flywheel on that is for a clutch & ********************************************************************** make sure the crankshaft will take a throwout bearing. Wow. Wrong, wrong, wrong! The crankshaft, and the throw out bearing have nothing to do with each other. I don't know why he is talking about the camshaft, which operates the valvetrain in the motor. And, he is talking Ford. Now Ford changes EVERYTHING about every couple of years, so bell housings and such, are a pain. If this is a Ford, get the trans with the motor. Chevy, and mopar, no problem. Untill you get into the Hemi stuff for Mopar. You will not have to modify the motor mount situation. Yhere is a little thing called a pilot bearing/bushing that goes in the end of the crankshaft to support the input shaft of the manual trans. If the motor came from a automatic, and you want to put it in a car with a manual, you will have to ad this. The other way around, it wont bother the torque converter, so I would not worry about it. However, you may run into smog laws, so check your state. ************************************************************************** ( Full Answer )
have it in top gear, drive along at 1000rpm, note the speed, then drive up to 2000rpm, just say 25mph increase, now depending what rpm your limited to multiply 25mph by how many revs you have. e.g 6500rpm multiply by 25mph = 162.5mph
Not sure what your doing but you can use a strap wrench around the bottom pulley to hold the crank from turning.
you scream at it, tell it it will be grounded for life if you dont get a job!!!!! Helpful people. You can do this with almost any car, but it is going to be expensive. Change the transmission, get the clutch pedal and brake assembly. clutch master cylinder if it's hydraulic, maybe change drive a…xles if front wheel drive. Most of the time, it just isn't worth it. I would advise you to locate your car at a wrecking yard that has a manual transmission already and remove all the needed parts. Then you would have all the parts you need and it will be closer to a 'bolt in' installation and it will most certainly save you some money and frustration. ( Full Answer )

You can change the differential gear ratio but you will sacrifice quickness on the lower end unless you have sufficient horsepower.

The Ford J4 factory cars at LeMans in 1965 was about 230 mph down the front straightaway. A J Foyt and Andretti were the drivers.
yes but you have to do numerous other stuff like wire reverse lights to the tranny. change the driveline, and add clutch pedal, there is a write up how to do it if you search s13 5 speed swap.
Rear end size, gears in the trans and the amount of power the car has
Yes, but it will be moderatly expensive. You will have to change the transmission, on most cars the mounts that hold the transmission to the body hhave to be changed, the ecu will have to be changed or the car won't run right, you can use a automatic ecu on a manual car but not manual ecu on a autom…atic. You will need the shift linkage for automatic as well as the interior shift selector and in some cases new trim for the selector. Also depending on the transmission you may have to wire in some new sensors. In some cases you may also need to buy new axles. In summation if this car holds some sort of sentimental value then you may want to do it, however, unless you have a hookup on parts its not worth it. Especially not worth it if you're going to pay someone to do it. Probably be cheaper to buy a car that's already automatic. Yes, you can. This could be best done by purchasing a wrecked doner vehicle that is the same as yours, except automatic. ( Full Answer )
A new valve body it's probably the easiest. If you do that you can have quicker, harder shifts and control when they happen. You can get more in depth then that and change clutches, gears and almost anything really.
I believe the Tata is the cheapest car in the world let alone India and that are made in India. I believe they us a CVT or Constant Velocity Transmission so there are no gear changes used. The CVT adjusts via a belt and moving pulleys to change the drive ratios. Simple and some more expensive …cars are using them as well. Nissan has them I believe on some of their smaller cars. Not zippy or fast but cheap and easy to drive ( Full Answer )
Simply start the vehicle with the shift lever in the Park position. If you wish to go backward place the shift lever in the R location. When you're ready to move forward place the shift lifter in the D position. Only shift from park to reverse or to drive when the vehicle is sitting still.
There are many benefits of owning a car with automatic transmission. These benefits would include the automatic shifting of gears as the vehicle moves.
