  • How to drive a car easily and safely? How to brake smoothly? Here are a few simple driving hacks and secrets you should know to drive your car like a pro.
    Have you already been driving for many years or are you just starting to drive? This activity can be both exciting and exhausting. Of course, firstly it depends on road conditions. However, there is one more important thing to be considered while driving - the behavior of your car. The longer you own a car; the more driving habits you acquire. Unfortunately, not all of those habits are good ones. Moreover, the more experienced you become, the harder it is to break them. And very often those habits can affect the condition of your car. We decided to compile examples of unwise driving behavior.
    Resting your hand on the gear stick 1:09
    Refueling only when the tank is almost empty 2:13
    Frequent braking 3:04
    Ignoring suspicious sounds 4:26
    Neglecting to use the hand brake 5:50
    Running a cold engine at high revs 6:34
    Keeping your foot on the brake while driving downhill 7:17
    - Whether you own an automatic or a manual car, a transmission that is not working correctly can cause serious problems both under the hood and out on the road. Moreover, transmissions are very complex, they have many moving parts, ignoring this bad habit can easily bring you to huge expenses for a transmission repair.
    - The dirt gets into the filters and the pump causing damage. The purpose of the latter is to get fuel from the fuel tank and deliver it according to the demand of the engine. During winter months, be sure to always leave the tank at least half-filled with fuel to avoid the formation of large amounts of condensate.
    - To avoid unpleasant accidents, remember to promptly change the brake hoses and keep your eye on the brake fluid level. Keep in mind that braking is another skill to be mastered; it takes a certain skill level to do it correctly.
    - Please use the following steps to safely move your vehicle away from the highway and to avoid the possible danger.
    Firstly, pull over to a safe spot. Don’t hesitate to ask for any possible assistance because the process might not be that easy as it seems. And remember to switch on the hazard lights. If the car has completely broken down and you cannot start it, just push it to a safe place After, try to diagnose the issue.
    - To successfully park on an incline, hold the foot brake and shift into "park." Then pull the hand brake, and only then slowly release the brake. It doesn’t really matter if your car has a manual or an automatic transmission, car manufacturers recommend the use of the parking brake to immobilize any parked vehicle.
    - Most modern engines don’t need warming up. However, it is worth remembering that until the gauge indicates operating temperature one shouldn’t run the engine at more than 2,000 revs. In freezing conditions, it is advisable to keep the engine running for 1-2 minutes before pulling away.
    - The proper thing to do is to shift to a lower gear and initiate engine braking, which helps to reduce the use of normal brakes. It works by reducing the speed of the engine, which means that the speed of the vehicle reduces too. The aim is to prevent the vehicle get a too fast speed, especially while going downhill.

    Always stay 3 seconds behind the car in front. When the car in front passes a fixed object start counting the seconds. You should not pass the fixed object for minimum of 3 seconds. Many people drive far too close to the car in front. Stay safe.

    Someone should really make a video about the importance of changing brake fluid. Most people think they don’t need to change it if it’s clear and clean. Dark or “dirty” brake fluid is definitely an indication that it needs to be replaced. But most people don’t understand why the fluid is dark.
    Basically brake fluid is hydroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. Over time the moisture/water mixed into the brake’s hydraulic system begins to rust out metal parts in the system. The dark colour you see is actually rust, but that’s not even the biggest problem with it. If you brake while going downhill, the heat caused by the brake pad on rotor is transfered to the brake fluid, which has a very high boiling point. You know what doesn’t have a very high boiling point? The water in your brake system. That water boils and then you get air in the system, causing a spongy brake pedal and eventually NO BRAKE POWER!
    If you haven’t replaced the fluid in the last 2 years do it today!

    You just also talk about using neutral for downhill because i heard mix messages with that, either its bad for the engine because its in neutral or it doesnt really make a difference, but I heard using neutral going down hill saves alot of gas.

    I do the engine braking thing when going downhill in my Rav4 to preserve brake life. It has an automatic but also has paddle shifters so I can use it in manual mode. The problem with this engine braking on these newer automatics is that now they have so many gears (6, 8, or even 9 speeds) that I'd have to drop it two or three gears before I get any braking effect from the engine. Historically, with just 5 or 4 speed transmissions, dropping it one gear was enough to make it slow down.
