2.22.2. Towage of the car with the automatic transmission
At towage of the car with the automatic transmission it is necessary to observe the following recommendations:
— unblock a steering wheel that it was possible to drive the car;
— try to adhere to the minimum allowed speed of the movement;
— you remember that at the switched-off engine amplifiers of brakes and steering do not work (the effort to pedals of a brake will be approximately four times more usual, and the wheel will rotate much heavier);
— do not make sharp maneuvers;
— in order to avoid excessive breakthroughs you hold a towing rope all the time tense.
— the lever of gear shifting has to be in the family way N;
— the most admissible speed with automatic transmission — 80 km/h;
— the maximum distance — 80 km;
— cars with automatic transmission can be towed only forward (launch of the engine by towage is impossible).
There are also several additional recommendations for the owners using the cars with the automatic transmission for towage as the tractor:
— on long steep slopes it is necessary to choose position of the selector 4, 3 or L if the tendency of frequent switching of the transmission is observed;
— at the movement down long steep slopes should choose situation 4, 3 or L (it will provide the best brake engine capacity);
— never it is necessary to use an accelerator for keeping of the car on a slope (instead it is necessary to use a brake), the unjustified overheat of oil in the transmission thereby will be prevented;
— in case of extreme conditions of driving for B4204T3/5 option with the automatic transmission the additional cooling pump can be installed.
