Scotty, Why haven't you addressed the issue of The newer Toyota Tundra's not having a transmission cooler? I would be very interested in your opinion because I have one of those years(2019-2021). Many transmission guys say this is a big mistake by Toyota but Mike Swears says it is not needed. But, owners of tundra have purchased scan tools that allow them to read transmission temps and say that temps go up to 220-230 degrees on hot days. What is your expert opinion.

I shifted from reverse to park without applying the brake pedal, but my hand brake was on and the car wasn't moving. Can this cause damage to the transmission?

I used to coast down a hill in neutral and as I was pulling into a parking lot I had forgotten that I was in neutral. Revved to like 4K and slammed it in gear so the car behind wouldn’t hit me. $4k later I learned my lesson. 😂

Once you get used to a stick, it becomes second nature and you don't even think about it. I have always said that you can always tell a long term stick driver when he shifts gears as he goes around a corner (and eating a cheeseburger). Lol I haven't had one in years, but i really miss them in the snow. With a manual in snow, you can start in second, or even third, to really reduce the torque and keep the tires from spinning. I always wonder why automatics never give you an option for minimal torque so that you can start on ice? They could easily program that in.

Diesel manual is the best combo in the world! Skilld driver does not stall it it's earier to cross a water crossing in manual as you can hold on to a gear for as much as you want so you can maintain top RPM that helps to control getting water from the silencer to the engine! Clutchless manual with launch control is perfect but without launch control it's just waste as no full control!! After watching this video I felt that lot of complications and limitations with automatic!

7:21 I worked in Detroit at Precision Honing that made those "Locking pins" They are called Parking Pawls. Its a pick that swings into your gears. I remade them for the Ford F-150 recall of peoples vehicles just rolling away back in 2014-2016. Ford installed batches of Pawls that were not endothermic gas heat treated & hardened at the other facility RMT woodworth I worked at.

Modern automatic transmissions are *much* more fuel efficient than manual. Modern autos have 6 to 10 gears. CVTs are the most efficient and would eventually become the only option if internal combustion engines weren't on the endangered species list. Electrics don't need much of a transmission.

I had a 2003 automatic Ford Focus SE. In my early stages of driving, I would shift to neutral on downhills (I lived in the mountains) and one day my transmission started slipping anytime I was in 3rd gear. Once I slowed down enough, it popped back into gear or if I stepped on the gas and skipped 3rd gear essentially. It only happened in 3rd gear. Stopped doing that 😂

5 months ago Dealership recommended CVT fluid be changed. I passed and took to another mechanic because dealership cost to high. Mechanic said CVT fluid never needs to be changed, dealership just wants to make extra $$. My 2015 Jeep Compass (68k miles) is now turning off while driving, mostly while at stop lights or at lower RPM’s.

My dad does pretty much all of these mistakes and I try to tell him it’s bad and he says “when you get a car you can get your own habits because these are my habits and changing them could cause me to have an accident”. My question to him is “how can warming up your car and putting your car in park cause you to have an accident”?

Back when I had my cruiser, I ended up getting a leak for the transmission fluid around 230k miles. I remember going down the road and thinking it felt odd. Then I tried to take off and the second the car went from 2nd to 3rd, it just completely dropped like I had put it in neutral then stalled. And made a very unpleasant sound when it dropped. Called my dad and he towed me to the house. We checked the fluid and there was nothing. We got it filled and let it sit over night and some in the morning. Level had dropped so we checked a pan we had under it, sure enough it had been leaking. We got it fixed, but, it would never shift right from 2nd to 3rd after that. (Got rid of it like 2 months later though)

I drive a 2019 Toyota Camry. I always warmmy car up for about a minute before I start driving no matter what the temperature is (-20F to 100F). My vehicle always starts running around 1500 RPM. After about a minute and sometimes less, the engine RPM will drop slowly drop to 1250 and finally to close to 1000 RPM (idle speed in park). I once shifted my vehicle accidentally at a higher engine RPM. I will never do that again.
