Neutral position
Salam benzers, I just wander when do you guys shift to the N neutral gear position? What will happen if one is on the D drive position and presses the brakes over a long period of time? I always change to the N position while waiting. Please comment.

Re: Neutral position
if need to wait long period, most of the time i will shift the gear to N. but personally i think if put the gear in D and press the brake, it is not a major concern.

however, need others here to verify..

good to practice shifting to neutral whenever the car is to stop for more than say 15 seconds and above...

Re: Neutral position
is good to shift to N/P while stop

the engine mounting lifespan will get longer

Because at R/D ...
the engine mounting is under tensioned

hope this helps ...

Re: Neutral position
Dr. Gan, I am in agreement with you. I may be wrong, but I am also told [and read somewhere] that frequent shifting to N/P whilst stopping will impact the linkages. And I believe it is more expensive to replace/repair the linkages than the engine mounting. My normal practice is to shift when I am expected to stop for more than 45 secs, otherwise I would leave it at "D" and apply the foot brakes [esp.at traffic lights].

linkages?? but what linkages are more expensive to replace than a torque converter and solenoid valve?

Re: Neutral position
Yes, you are right there; torque converter and solenoid valve parts are more expensive to replace. Linkages may be cheaper. To replace torque converter and solenoid valve and the linkages, you would need to open up the auto tranny, which is more tedious as opposed to replacing the engine mountings.Again, I maybe wrong.
