Is it possible to tow on the machine?

There are various types of automatic transmissions. But in any of them there is a sufficient amount of oil, with the help of which the gears are shifted and the automatic gearbox is lubricated. This procedure for the treatment of parts with oil is carried out exclusively with the engine running. We will understand whether it is possible to tow on the machine, and how safer to do it.

If towing with a cable, the parts are not lubricated, which adversely affects their condition, so this procedure is not desirable.

There are situations when the car does not start and it must be delivered in a cold state to the service station. In such cases, it is better to use the services of a tow truck. He will load the car and take it to the service.

European developers have also invented a special cart. This handy thing you can carry with you in the car. And in the event of a breakdown, the drive wheels are rolled onto it, preventing their contact with the road surface.In such a situation, the automatic transmission remains unmovable, but the vehicle is towed.

If a situation arises when towing with a cable is simply necessary. Is it possible to tow a box machine in this way? Yes, but very carefully, it should be “pulled” at a speed of no more than 50 km / h, and it is better to limit to 20 km / h and to a distance of no more than 50 km. In this case, the gearshift lever must be in neutral.

However, in order to precisely avoid problems with a major overhaul of a car, as a result of towing the machine, it is better to do this with full or partial loading.
