    yar you go start the car and you are pressing the race rpm is at 2 and then you shift it to reverse you will listen to thug sound.

    so what i am suggesting is that while shifting to reverse to not press race. when you have shifted then give throttle

    another thing i would like to mention is if you have pressed the throttle a little but then do not shift to reverse even if the car is stationay coz you will again hear the "thug" sound. leave the throttle before shifting to reverse
    explanation needed dude
    Never press the accelator whilst changing into reverse. Also don't ever change into reverse whilst the car is moving. Doing so will cause damage to the transmission. And you'll hear a very distinct
    "thud" sound indicating the transmission got a beating.

    I, without exaggeration, drove from ISB to Lower Topa via Jheeka gali on VTI' 98 without shifting at all leaving in D. I only used accelerator (half kick????) to shift gears while climbing up. So there is no need to shift gear at all and drive and when you need lower gear just leave the pedal momentarily and press it hard (halfway), the car will shift to lower gear on its own.

    While , on a descent, I shifted to lower gears D1 or 2 for engine breaking. I can tell you Jheeka gali is steep, those who have taken that route will endorse it.

    Cheers,
    Kaleem

    Pir Sohawa doesn't demand any shifts. The only place I had to shift to 2 was while going to my village in AJK. The roads there are very steep and offer no grip at all.

    There was trouble with the driver, not the car.
    I have found auto more cooperative than manual while driving uphill.

    This is true. I never felt need to shift my car to any gear other than D during 2 years of driving with auto transmission. That includes several trips to hilly areas, frequent parkings into underground car lots etc etc

    Sirs

    I needed to shift into "2" when going to Peshawar, dont know the place, there was an uphill of nearly 50 degree, car was on CNG with 5 people and luggage on A/C and there was an intercity big bus behind giving horn and beams, I do not have the time to convert to petrol, shifted to "2" and pressed the throttle to the floor, the car reached @ 90km/hr from 35km/hr in around 10 seconds I think.

    It could be a nightmare had I been driving a Vario or Xli (kisi Xli wale bhai ne sun to nahin liya, vario ki khair hai).

    Also do not pull the handbrake after shifting into "P" mode or the Civic will jerk (I still cannot understand why it happens).
    Will somebody help me to make an avatar like the one Mr bango<SCRIPT type=text/javascript> vbmenu_register("postmenu_2293177", true); </SCRIPT> has or I have to do something on my own.

    Regards

    On running at Petrol, if need for change then install Denso K16RU-11 or NGK platinum BKR5E-GP. For CNG slightly cold plugs be used for hard to ignite fuel, Platinum BKR6E-GP, also Bosh FR78X.

    shifting into "2" makes little sense while serious hill climbing
    you shud shift into the lowest possible gear while climbing...

    "2" means the car only uses 2nd gear and not the first gear....this only improves traction....
    But if u have good tyres and u are going to like Shogran etc..., i recommend u use "D4", "D" or "D3" , wat ever one ur car has....
    This way the car will use the first gear as well...., u just have to keep the throttle above 50% or so....that is the best way for hill climbing in an auto car....

    And i also need to have such an avatar like bango......

    Its a auto mechnasim for CNG, starts on petrol. So I'll go for Denso or NGK plugs.

    Anybody having the user's manual, please let me know!

    <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
    Sir

    "2" is the lowest possible gear in a Civic, and it is most powerful too, recommended for both snow and towing, it can move the car from standstill and can exceed 100km/hr barrier untill the rev limiter kicks in.

    D4 and "D" are the same, D3 and D will not give much acceleration if the car is at 30km/hr or on CNG.

    Corolla's OD should be strictly turned off while some serious driving on highway or hill climbing.

    This is wrong.

    The number means an upper limit to the gear the transmission will shift into. Thus:

    D means use all the gear available depending on speed and load.
    D4 or 4 or 3 etc means use only the first 4 or 3 gears etc, and not use overdrive or top gear (depending on transimission)
    2 means use the first TWO gears i.e. start offf in first and use second if speed and load permit.
    L or 1 means use only the first gear no matter what the speed and load within limits.

    What you are possibly referring to is the "2nd gear start" facility that some cars have. This means exactly that: start off in 2nd gear and then use the higher gears as normal. This limits the torque and thus can prevent wheelspin when moving off in the snow or under slippery conditions.

    @VCheng<SCRIPT type=text/javascript> vbmenu_register("postmenu_2297277", true); </SCRIPT>

    Sir "2" means the gear is locked at 2 in Civic.

    Otherwise it could have been, "D2".

    What you are possibly referring to is the "2nd gear start" facility that some cars have. This means exactly that: start off in 2nd gear and then use the higher gears as normal. This limits the torque and thus can prevent wheelspin when moving off in the snow or under slippery conditions
    This is a much better description.
