operate the system
different drive ranges:
Neutral for starting the engine you must
have the selector level in Neutral. When you move from
Neutral to a drive range, the engine should be at idle
speed. If the engine is cold (like a Norwegian summer?)
the car can start to move in Neutral unless you apply
the foot brake.
Low is selected if a heavy load is load
is to be put on the engine. If you shall moving off on
a steep hill with your mum in the backseat, or driving
over very rough terrain Low level should be selected.
1st is selected for normal traffic use
and rapid acceleration.
2nd is the range for 'highway' driving,
and accelerating at medium and high speed.
Reverse, think you can figure out yourself
what this is use for? You have to depress the selector
lever slightly to select Reverse.
you now know the different drive ranges we will look into:
Changing drive range:
When you put the hand on the selector level and move it,
you will close the circuit to the solenoid in the servo
mechanism that operate the Semi-Auto clutch.
select a drive range:
A: Release the accelerator pedal!
B: Push selector lever to the position you want.
C: Take your hand off selector lever.
D: Drive a way like a angel on a sky!
Other things you should think about when the engine is
pulling hard, the temperature of the Automatic Transmission
Fluid (ATF) in the torque converter can rise about normal.
This overheat calls for a changes in driving range. If
this happens a red lights in the speedometer will lights
up. If the light comes on you should select the next lower
drive range so the torque converter ATF cools down.
Another tips is when the car stand still and you select
a drive rang have the foot on the brake pedal! Or the
car can creep forward ( or backward in Reverse). And when
you parking the vehicle you must use the handbrake! Or
the car can begin to move when you are into the shop!!!!!
