Do you drive a car with an automatic transmission? 🚕 The interface of automatic vehicles is often simpler, and new drivers don't have to struggle with a seemingly unruly stick shift and clutch. But there are still some ways you can mess up your transmission. Here are 7 of the most dangerous mistakes you can make when driving an automatic! 📣 TIMESTAMPS: Don't shift from "drive" to "reverse" before your car stops moving 1:06 Never put your car in "park" before it stops completely 1:55 Don't put it in "neutral" at stop lights 2:56 Don't coast in "neutral" 3:53 Never “launch” your car from a standstill 4:44 Avoid keeping the gas tank on low 5:48 Do not let water get in the transmission 6:31 #automatictransmission #drivinghacks #drivingtips Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - If your brakes wear down, replacing them will cost you around $200. But by constantly shifting from "drive" to "reverse" while the car’s still rolling, get ready for damage that can run you at least $2,500. - When you throw it in “park,” a pin locks the transmission output shaft, which connects it to the wheels of your car. But if the car’s still rolling when you do this, either the locking pin or the output shaft may break or become eroded. - It's better to keep your car in "drive" than to switch it to "neutral" when stopped at a light. First of all, when your car’s in "neutral," you don't have as much control over it. So if you need to make some emergency maneuver, you may not be able to execute it in time. - Cars with automatic engines are designed in such a way that they save fuel even if the gear is in "drive." They simply cut the fuel supply when you're going downhill. - Plenty of drivers launch their cars all the time. This causes serious harm to the bands and clutches of the automatic transmission. When you shift, they use friction to move definite parts. - Ignoring the low fuel light may eventually cost you much more than just filling your tank up, especially if your car has an automatic transmission. - If water gets into the transmission, you're in big trouble. Even the smallest amount of water, just an ounce, can wreak havoc on your car’s transmission to the point that it needs replaced.

This is the correct procedure to uncouple and recouple your trailer.
It was a busy night for our Tow Heros. Can you count all the people that went home without their cars? I lost track. Funny how they all read the signs AFTER getting towed. The white car is authorized to park in the lot. READ THE FAQs BEFORE COMMENTING MUSIC: Scratch The Itch, Quincas Moreira The Hero Steps Up, Dougie Wood Seven Twenty, Diamond Ortiz Desert Sky, Silent Partner READ THE FAQs BEFORE COMMENTING: Q: Why are cars towed from your lot? A: Because they're parked illegally and take up space our customers need, 24 hours. Q: But it's night-time. Businesses are closed at night. Do you really have to tow at night? A: Yes. This business is NOT closed at night. It's very common for techs to visit in the overnight times in order to do maintenance on servers and systems. It's also possible that deliveries may need to be made during after-hours times. Q: How do you know if it's a customer or not? A: There is various technology at work to help with this. But the simplest answer is that if they're not in the building and they haven't checked in with the tech desk, their car doesn't belong in the lot. Q: You suck. A: That's not a question, but I get the point. And I've heard it all before. I understand you think you've got a witty, original insult for me. You probably don't. Save yourself the humiliation. Q: Do you read the comments? A: Sometimes against my better judgement, generally, yes. Q: Why don't you just rent out spaces and make money? A: Because that would eliminate parking spaces for the real customers of the business. It's not worth the few bucks. Q: Do you get paid a fee or kickback for the towed cars? A: No. Q: Are there signs posted about not to park? A: Yes. No fewer than 6. Usually more if they're not damaged or destroyed. Q: Your signs are misleading. Do they say 24 hours? Should they be mounted differently? A: The signs specify 24 hours / 7 days a week. They're mounted in accordance with local laws. Q: How many cameras do you have? A: More than 60. Some you can see, some are hidden. Q: What kind of cameras do you use? A: A lot of different kinds, based on the application. Q: Do you feel bad for these people who get towed? A: Most of the time, not really. Q: Why are you making fun of the people who get towed? A: I'm not. I'm posting the videos because I think they're entertaining and educational. Q: How come you never post videos of cars that belong there? A: Because that wouldn't be entertaining at all. It would be completely boring. Q: Why don't you stop people from parking? A: Sometimes we do! It all depends on if we are able to catch what's happening live, but the company's techs have their jobs to do and are not always available to have their eyes glued to the parking lot cameras and be able to run outside. #TowTruck #ParkingLotFail #InstantKarma
