    Default Want to learn how to DRIVE an auto transmission vehicle

    Assalam O Alaikum PWers

    I have been looking for an Answer but didn't find any regarding auto transmission car. Please correct me if i am driving in a wrong manner and explain how it damages any mechanical part.

    1. Every time i stop at red light i shift it to neutral.(usually its 20sec stop)
    2.When i am entering from speed zone of 80 to 60 i shift it to N and then again shift to D4 at the speed of 60.
    3.When RPM reaches 2800-3000 i depress the accelerator and when i FEEL the jerk of up-shift,then i again press the accelerator.

    Call me hyper-miller,nerd or whatever u like.. i just want to keep my car's engine on minimum load as much as i can for better mileage. I am just ADDICTED to PLAY with STICK

    P.S: 1.Current vehicle is Civic 2000,D16y4, 4speed auto, previous ride was mehran
    2. Car is doing 470km in a full tank with 60% city and 40% highway doing top of 100km/hr in it.
    3.Yes,liter of 91 unleaded is cheaper than liter of water and soft drink but still i don't want to waste the fuel

    Thanks for brief reply

    to warm up the ATF - take the car on a high speed drive for 25 minutes. Then check the level. - There is no issue with anything like going uphill or downhill - the transmission can take it.

    the usual failure points on this transmission are the accumulator springs breaking (changed from the lower sump) - governer hanging from dirt/debris - clean it out - its installed in the tail housing of the transmission, vacuum modulator leaking - it will cause bumpy shift or sometimes very harsh shift, this part has been updated by GM.

    So the verdict is : Do not shift it to N while waiting on red traffic light?
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    you cannot shove any other filter in there, you need the GM part.

    @Xulfiqar
    In morning, when i start the car it remains at 1500rpm for couple of minutes then slowly comes down to 800rpm,in idle(P)
    but as soon i shift from P to D in cold start it comes at around 1100rpm without any delay. I usually drive 25kms in one go.Should I wait in morning(normally 15 degrees in Sydney these days) or should warm it up by driving??
