It was revealed how not to damage the automatic transmission when towing a car 14:02

The safe distance for towing a vehicle with automatic transmission is considered to be 25-50 km. In this respect stated Alexey Revin, automobile expert of Za Rulem magazine.

“The machines use a lot of plain bearings with forced lubrication; During normal operation, the working fluid under pressure is supplied by a pump driven from the input shaft of the box and rotating with the engine. Therefore, when the engine is not running, bearings and planetary gearboxes operate only on the remaining oil film, in danger of serious wear. That is why different manufacturers call the relatively harmless towing distance for vehicles with automatic transmission 25-50 km at a speed not exceeding 30-50 km per hour,” said Revin.

Alexey Ruzanov, formerly technical director of the international car services network Fit Service saidAlmost all leaks of technical fluids under the hood of a car are a sign of a serious malfunction. According to him, if leaks are not taken care of, this can eventually lead to expensive machine repairs.

For example, the power steering fluid will completely leak out when the engine is running within two minutes, after which the pump will run “dry” and fail. And it’s not cheap. If the cooling system hose breaks, the fluid will drain out in about five minutes. Then, when the engine is running, the engine will begin to overheat, which will lead to a major overhaul of the unit.

Moreover Appearedthat vehicle maintenance (MOT) should be carried out every 8 thousand km. During basic maintenance, the chassis is diagnosed, oil and filters are changed and drive shafts are injected (if the vehicle is equipped).
