CAN I SET THE AUTOMATIC GEAR TO NEUTRAL WHILE THE CAR IS MOVING ON FLAT ROAD?
,AND IF YES DOES THAT HARM THE GEAR MECHANICALY ??
You can do this and I don't think this will harm the car. I do this often when I see a red light ahead. I then put it back into drive when I'm at a standstill or if the light turns green before I get there. I think it probably saves a little fuel.
Some automatic transmissions will allow you to do this. This can be useful when coming up to a stop as it will insure your brakes are not working against your engine which is always trying to push you forward while you are in gear. Gas savings are negligible however the increased lifespan of your brakes will definitely be noticeable.
lol just remember what you did or you will have a nasty shock when you try to accelerate. The only down side is that you are gambling on no one doing anything around you that would require split second decisions to move out of the way. An expensive game of Russian roulette.
thanx all for ur answers ,i asked this queation because i heared from some mechanichs that i shouldnt do that because it will harm th gear and will replace it afterwhile ???so i need a proffesional to answer that , my way to work is flat and when i set the gear on (N) IT MOVES EVEN FASTER THAN (D) SO ..?
You can but I know for a fact that it will begin to cause the shell housing inside of the transmission to wear. When the shell wears small pieces of metal flake off and then this metal can ruin your transmission.
