7 Things You Shouldn't Do In an Automatic Transmission Car

Do you drive a car with an automatic transmission? 🚕 The interface of automatic vehicles is often simpler, and new drivers don't have to struggle with a seemingly unruly stick shift and clutch. But there are still some ways you can mess up your transmission. Here are 7 of the most dangerous mistakes you can make when driving an automatic! 📣 TIMESTAMPS: Don't shift from "drive" to "reverse" before your car stops moving 1:06 Never put your car in "park" before it stops completely 1:55 Don't put it in "neutral" at stop lights 2:56 Don't coast in "neutral" 3:53 Never “launch” your car from a standstill 4:44 Avoid keeping the gas tank on low 5:48 Do not let water get in the transmission 6:31 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - If your brakes wear down, replacing them will cost you around $200. But by constantly shifting from "drive" to "reverse" while the car’s still rolling, get ready for damage that can run you at least $2,500. - When you throw it in “park,” a pin locks the transmission output shaft, which connects it to the wheels of your car. But if the car’s still rolling when you do this, either the locking pin or the output shaft may break or become eroded. - It's better to keep your car in "drive" than to switch it to "neutral" when stopped at a light. First of all, when your car’s in "neutral," you don't have as much control over it. So if you need to make some emergency maneuver, you may not be able to execute it in time. - Cars with automatic engines are designed in such a way that they save fuel even if the gear is in "drive." They simply cut the fuel supply when you're going downhill. - Plenty of drivers launch their cars all the time. This causes serious harm to the bands and clutches of the automatic transmission. When you shift, they use friction to move definite parts. - Ignoring the low fuel light may eventually cost you much more than just filling your tank up, especially if your car has an automatic transmission. - If water gets into the transmission, you're in big trouble. Even the smallest amount of water, just an ounce, can wreak havoc on your car’s transmission to the point that it needs replaced.

Top 10 True Stories You Won’t Believe Behind Famous Logos

Famous brands need clever, sophisticated logos. Some are very simple and effective. Others are smarter, with hidden messages buried inside them. Some have even been around for hundreds of years. But have you thought about how these logos came to be?

The MGM Lion - The movie maker Metro Goldwyn Mayer is one of the world’s favourite corporate logos. Firstly because it tells you the adverts have finished and the movie is finally starting. Secondly, because it has a massive roaring lion in it. The Captain Morgan pirate - The Captain Morgan pirate is one of the best-known corporate mascots in the world. His likeness has graced bottles of rum since the 50s, and inspired this NFL celebration, landing the Captain in hot water. Chupa Chups - Hands up who likes Chupa Chups! Of course, we all do. They’re a worldwide sensation. The gold standard in lollipops since 1958. This sweet on a stick was invented by Spanish candyman Enric Bernat, but they were not as immediately popular as you might think. Android - Officially, the little green man who greets you when you open your Android device doesn’t have a name. Some of the team at Google call him Bugdroid , as he’s always chasing down bugs. Those crazy computer guys! McDonalds - There are many myths and legends associated with the McDonalds Golden Arches, one of the most recognisable logos in the world. Is it inspired by the letter M? Apple - If you’re not watching this video on a little green Bugdroid device, you’re probably watching it on an Apple screen. That famous logo, the apple with a bite taken out of it, is simple, effective, as familiar as your own face. But what you may not know, is that it’s not the original Apple logo. The Bacardi bats - Back to rum, and the most famous rum brand in the world, Bacardi. If you’ve ever wondered why Bacardi bottles are adorned with bats, our story begins in 1862, in Cuba. Jagermeister - Staying with the hard stuff, it’s the favourite green tipple of apres-skiers everywhere, Jagermeister. On every Jagermeister bottle, you’ll see a crucifix and a stag’s head, and you may be asking yourself, what’s that got to do with Jagerbombs? Well, it starts in 727 AD with a hunter named Hubert. Nike - These days graphic designers spend weeks creating a logo. They spend their ‘blue-sky thinking’ and testing their ideas on focus groups. Walt Disney’s signature - When people ask you for your signature, it’s because your signature is yours and yours alone, that’s how they know it’s you. When people asked Walt Disney for his signature, they were invariably confused.

Then you surely know that having a car is not easy. You have to deal with many little problems all the time: a scratch here, window crack there… You also have to watch out for the safety of your car. Do you want to learn how to keep your coffee cup safe at speed? To make your life easier, we collected some tips that are useful for both beginners and professionals! TIMESTAMPS Nail polish can almost hide a small scratch 0:47 Clear nail polish can stop a windshield crack 1:17 Turn the steering wheel when you need to leave the car 1:37 Get rid of the bright sun 2:08 A bay leaf to prevent car sickness 2:36 A smart sunglasses holder 2:57 A lemon helps to prevent drowsiness while driving 3:21 Enhanced cupholder 3:46 Hang a tennis ball in the garage 4:15 Check the oil quality 4:40 Check the gas quality 5:43 Super fast car ventilation 6:55 Use static electricity to fight with your pet's hair 7:25 How to avoid car doors' freezing 8:00 Use potato not to let your car windows fog 8:20 A road-trip with kids 8:46 SUMMARY - After you find the perfect match, put some on the scratch. After the nail polish dries, just buff the scratch a little to make it smooth. - To combat such cracks, use clear nail polish. Put 2 or 3 layers on the crack, and it will stop the crack from growing. - The steering wheel is already too hot to touch! To avoid this, turn the steering wheel by 180 degrees when leaving the car. The part you use to drive will stay in the shadow. - In order not to get blinded by the sun, take an acrylic sheet and put it on the windshield. Acrylic is easily attached to the windshield thanks to static electricity, and it protects your eyes from ultraviolet rays very well. - If you've got a long road ahead of you and you are worried that you might get car sick, there is a fantastic solution! You may be surprised, but you just need to put a bay leaf under your tongue. - Are you one of those people who doesn't know where to put their sunglasses in the car? There is just the place: put them on the sun visor. This way you'll make sure your glasses won't fall on a bumpy road. - If you are feeling a bit drowsy when driving, put a piece of lemon under your tongue. This will wake you up very quickly. But still, we don't recommend you to drive when you are tired. - This advice will come in handy to those who find that their cupholder isn't reliable enough. Put a little silicone cupcake case on the bottom of the cupholder. This way, your coffee cup will be secured inside, and all the little pieces of trash will be in the case. - A tennis ball hanging in the garage can be a point which shows that a wall is near. The ball will help you to feel the car's size more easily, so you won't drive further than necessary. - Heat the engine for 5-10 minutes, and cut the ignition off. Open the hood, and put a couple of oil drops onto a sheet of paper. Carefully take the sheet in a warm place and wait for 2 hours for the oil to dry. - Put a drop of gas on a white sheet of paper, blow on it, and wait for the drop to evaporate. If the paper is perfectly white after the experiment, it means that you are using good-quality gas. If there is a greasy spot, it means there is some kerosene in the gas. - Open a door and one of the front windows. Then open and close the door on the opposite side of the car. Do it a couple of times - this trick helps to cool down the car quickly, and it also gets rid of unpleasant smells easily. - All you need is a pair of latex gloves. Put them on and rub your gloved hands against the carpet. It will create static electricity which in turn will help pet hair to resurface. - When the windows in the car start fogging from the inside, you need to cut a potato in two parts. Then rub the potato on the windows from the inside and let them dry. - Use a shower organizer to keep everything you need on the way, from diapers to bottles with water and some games. Just fix it to the seat in front of you and enjoy your organized ride!

How to drive a car safely? How to drive a car with an automatic transmission? Safety is everything when it comes to driving.
For example, do you know how to drive in winter weather? If you don't feel sure about your driving skills, then watch these 15 secrets from the specialists of defensive driving.

The most important rule for when you’re in a drift is not to brake. We mean than blocked wheels don’t let the driver control the car at all. There are only two ways of dealing with drifts, and they are different for each type of drive.

We're sure that you know these methods, but we still have a few secrets from the specialists of defensive driving to offer you.

SUMMARY
Where danger can come from.
The places where people brake more often are usually the most slippery: before turns, pedestrian crossings, and bus stops. You should keep the same speed there and start braking early.

Keeping the right distance.
In winter, the distance between two cars should be two times bigger than in summer. But don’t leave too much space because someone else will want to get in the middle.

Looking further
Don’t look only at the car in front of you. Keep it in your sight, but also look further — 4-5 cars further.

Using clutch and brake in the winter.
In winter, you shouldn’t push the clutch pedal together with the brake pedal. In this case, the wheels can get blocked and the car will be put into a drift.

Driving in fog.
Make sure your headlights are on but don’t use high beams. Those will reflect off of the vapor in the air and only make things worse.

ABS VS. no ABS.
ABS car owners.
The anti-lock braking system neutralizes the brake pedal on icy roads if you push it too fast and too hard. Instead of braking suddenly, the system causes the pedal to vibrate, so you can turn the wheel and put it in the initial position.

None ABS car owners.
The best way to brake in winter is using the brake pedal together with the downshift speeds. You should push the brake pedal shortly and then fully unblock the wheels. Repeat before the full stop.

How to regain control when drifting
If your car starts drifting, don’t panic and don’t hit the brake pedal! Another mistake most people make is wrenching the wheel round and in this way over-compensating.

Check the road.
When driving on winter roads, hit the brake pedal and let it go several times. If you feel that the car stops, the road is good; if you don’t, it means that the road is icy. Do this as often as possible. Make sure you aren’t creating dangerous situations, of course.

Divide by two.
If in summer you can drive at 80 miles per hour, then in winter, you should drive at 40 miles per hour. This way, you will make sure that you will have enough time to react if your car starts drifting.

The surface road.
On any road, try to drive the car so that all 4 wheels are on the same surface.

Pick a side
To avoid bounces between the walls of a deep track, push either the inside or the outside part of the wheels against the wall.

Higher gear.
On an icy road, you should drive in a higher gear. Again, take the summer norm and increase the gear by one when you’re driving in winter.

Don’t overestimate other drivers.
People will speed, drive on red, and not let you merge from time to time. Staying alert for others to make mistakes is an essential defensive driving trick.

Have an emergency plan.
Always leave enough space around your car to swerve to safety if you should. An emergency plan and an escape route in mind provide extra safety for you.

Use technology wisely.
Use planners available for your smartphone to make sure you never forget to have your wheels changed. Set a reminder right now, so every October you will be reminded that it’s time you thought about your safety.
