1.24. Features of operation of the car


Driving of the car equipped with the automatic transmission

When driving the car equipped with the automatic transmission it is necessary to pay attention to the following features:

  – at dispersal of the car the engine will work with the raised turns that is normal and typical for automatic transmission;
  – for bystry increase in speed of the movement it is necessary to press an accelerator pedal against the stop and some time to hold it in this situation. Increase in speed of the engine and decrease in transfer number in the transmission will quickly increase the speed of the movement of the car;
  – if pressure upon a pedal of an accelerator decreases, turns of the engine will decrease irrespective of the speed of the movement. This normal phenomenon leading to considerable economy of fuel.


It is forbidden to increase engine turns over 300 rpm at position of the handle in a position "N".

Driving of the car equipped with the catalyst

To exclude such operating conditions of the engine under which not burned down or partially burned down fuel can get to the catalyst, especially at the heated-up engine:

  – do not allow full fuel use from the fuel tank;
  – you do not make unfairly long start of the engine;
  – do not start the engine with the disconnected wire of high voltage;
  – do not start the engine towage or pushing at the heated-up engine. For start of the engine use the accumulator from other car;
  – do not switch off the engine at the movement of the car.

The parking of the car equipped with the catalyst

After an engine stop the exhaust system a long time continues to radiate a significant amount of heat therefore it is necessary to avoid the parking on a grass and dry leaves.
