The tranny shouldnt be used to hold you on a hill anyways. 1) Put the vehicle in the desired spot. Turn wheels away from curb on uphill toward curb on downhill. 2) With the vehicle still in gear being held by brake pedal engage parking Brake. 3) Shift into Nuetral and remove foot from brake pedal. 4) Shift into park parking on a slight hill without using the parking Brake means the Auto transmission is holding the vehicle in place. When a vehicle in this situation is put back into gear the shift is usually accompanied by a large BANG . Too many bangs and there aint nothin left to hold nothin. Using steps 1 thru 4 mean The parking Brake is only thing holding the vehicle. This is accomplished by shifting into Nuetral(eliminates the tranny) and taking your foot off the brake pedal (eliminates the brakes) The transmission in park is then the second line of defense in the event of parking brake failure. The tires into the curb is the third line of defense after the parking Brake and Transmission. This is how Ive always done it so I have never known whether any auto transmission Ive ever owned would hold on a hill or not. If the truck rolls in park on even slight inclines something has to be fixed eventually.
sounded like a thump. It almost sounds like someone is thumping the side of the shifting console. Just wondering if anyone has noticed the same and if it led to anything major or minor Thanks for any imput. When parking on an incline I normally do like Supacabby and shift into neutral apply the emergency brake and then shift into park so that there is no stress on the transmission if the vehicle rolls
She doesnt even want to drive it. Somehow during all the test drives the car she loved two months ago had become pondering and obscene. The BMW dealer is two blocks away. On our walk over she complains about the BMW. I tell her about the variable suspension and she says its a gimmick. I tell her about the engine choices and she says she only wants to try the 28i. I mention normalsport and she rolls
