9. Help the Transmission Shift.20-Apr-2016
Virtually all transmission wear takes place during the shifts; almost none occurs between the shifts. So one way to reduce transmission wear is to reduce the load during the shift. Pay attention to the speed when your transmission shifts normally. Then, just before the normal shift speed, learn to back off the gas just a bit. Easing off the gas will force the shift, while reducing the load on the clutches: A sure way to improve transmission life.
