It's possible that the idle speed is set to high or low. When you shift into drive, power is applied from the motor through the transmission to the CV axles. If the idle is set too high there will be too much power applied to a "stopped" car. If the idle is set too low, then when the car is put into drive, the RPMs will drop and the car will apply more gas to keep the engine from stalling.

Start your car and watch your tachometer. It will normally start off high (between 1-2k RPMs) then it should lower within a minute. Note the idle RPM. It should be around 1k RPMs (+/- 300 RPMs). If it's outside of that range or if the needle moves a lot, then there's something wrong. You can find the factory spec idle speed online if you look.

I was told by a Toyota dealer that I cannot dolly tow a car (AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION) with the drive wheels on the ground. So, a front wheel drive car can be on the dolly forward but a rear wheel drive would have to be backed on the dolly.

If you have an automatic transmission, it probably has a forward clutch/band problem.

'Propel' means 'drive forward', so 'propel forward' means 'drive forward forward'. Better to avoid it!

Drive forward can be taken in several different connotations. 1) Drive forward: to move a vehicle in the forward direction relative to the front of the vehicle. 'You should drive forward rather than take the turn here'. In this instance using drive, accelerate, advance, or proceed would be acceptable. 2) Drive forward: to push forward militarily, an army's push into enemy territory. 'Drive forward! Press the attack!' In this instance, push, attack, advance, storm, assault, strike. 3) Drive forward: motivation to proceed with a goal or activity, such as the drive for technological, societial, etc. progression. 'We must "drive forward" into the future.' In this instance, advance, proceed, continue, promote.

there is no such thing as a automatic licence, but there is a regular licence.

The MR2 is better as a performance car, the Celica has more seating and storage room, so would be better for travelling, and is front wheel drive so it will drive better in the snow.

The shifter. D is for drive which is forward and R is for reverse. N is for neutral. You have to have the breaks pressed down all the way in order to move out of park and into D or R.

Drive. If it has a circle around it, it has automatic overdrive.

Nothing if you are sitting still. However if you are moving forward and it is an older car, you may be replacing a transmission. Most if not all cars today with and automatic trasnmission have a failsafe to prevent going into reverse while going forward.

For backhand, push the badminton racket forward with medium strength to make the shuttlecock drive forward. Same for forehand.

The 1996 Toyota Celica and a 1994 Toyota Celica both run the same oil filter. The part number in a Ryco Oil filter is Z386 From 1986 the front wheel drive Celicas all used the same filter. Even the GT4 models still used a Z386

pull the drive line, pop the caps off the u-joint, and drive the u-joint out of the drive-line and install the new one.

Provided you could start the car, there is no reason whty you couldn't as they function almost as an automatic does.

By, placing Cannons surrounding the city.

If you shift the gear stick to the right, it is on manual. Then by pushing it forward and releasing you shift up; by pulling backward and releasing you shift down.

An automatic transmission has some advantages over a manual transmission. An automatic is easier to drive in traffic and on hills, as you do not have to keep operating the clutch.

Drive on an automatic transmission is usually a good place to start.
