Automatic transmission driving on the streets of the capital or major city that was never out of a traffic jam , it is more promising comfort in comparing manual transmission car .
But behind the comfort obtained , the automatic gearbox needing care exceeds the manual transmission , especially in dealings with the gearbox .
Here are things you should know :
1 . Automatic Transmission Fluid
In the automatic gearbox , there is a fluid whose name Automatic Transmission Fluid ( ATF ) , its function is not only lubricate . The principle of the hydraulic automatic gearbox requires a mediator . Primarily to regulate tooth movement and pressed the clutch plate . So if the viscosity of the viscosity drops , the pressure generated will also be reduced .
2 . Combustion process
Because there is no combustion process in the automatic transmission , the lower the viscosity of the fluid is caused due to contamination lifetime . It can not be avoided , because any friction that occurs in the clutch plate , definitely generate a charge / Grum contaminants .
3 . slip Clutch
Symptoms can damage the automatic transmission in the feel of the clutch slip . The indication of an imbalance rev the engine with the car’s speed . Machines already roaring at high speed , but the car is running at a rate that is not balanced with the roar of a car .
4 . Gear
Switching gears too jerky , not smooth as usual . This can be checked by entering the gear position D or R , then brake off . In healthy condition , the car in motion . If not , should the suspect there is a problem in the automatic transmission .
Do not insert the lever into position P if the car has not really stopped .
Do not leave the car parked in position D. Sometimes this is done by drivers who are familiar with the manual car . Habits like these mandatory leave , if you do not want to be broken clutch plate . Simply by inserting the lever into position P , a car parked in a safe position .
Hopefully this information is useful to you .
