Default Good or Bad For My Engine/Tranny?

I know im going to hear it for this but better to ask then to break something. I have a 2004 sl. im guessing 5 speed,by the sound. i always manually shift the car from 1st,2nd,to 3rd. just seems like the car drives faster. Is this bad for my engine? or tranny? i never redline but sometimes if im fooling around i bring it up a little high in 2nd (exhaust sounds sweet)... Should i just completely not do this because its bad? and please no answers like "no you shouldnt" i want to know why. Thanks guys!

Haha, one of those threads.


Rule of thumb in life...... If your having to ask "Is this ok?" ..... It's probably not.

Why not drive an automatic the way it's meant to be driven, and then you don't have to worry about it. Not trying to be a jack ass, just stating facts

I understand what you mean Chris, I guess what I'm asking is what r the cons. Driving a manual people go to higher Rome when they shouldn't... people increase there timing 2 degrees... My question is... is this bad or is it similar to the 6th gene that have that option to shift when you want...

I always manual shift from 1 to 2. The car takes forever to shift to second so i do it myself lol i hate when im cruising at low speeds and its till in 1st with a high rpm so i do it myself. probably not the same as what youre concerned about but i do manual shift my car myself sometimes.

I don't think its good or bad, as long as your not racing like that it won't hurt your transmission. Like 06BlckMax said don't be stupid with it.. and I wouldn't use it to down shift. I personally don't manual shift my cvt unless I'm going up a very steep grade I'll put it in 5th or 4th if I feel I need to for a minute. Have fun

I too have a 5 speed automatic and have used the shift feature many times, but mostly on curvy mountain roads or where inclines are steep. In those situations I down shift as if it were a manual transmission. I don't believe it hurts your transmission if used properly, after all, that is exactly what it was designed for and that is how you get into lower gears.

The one thing that I find uncomfortable about using that feature is the lack of a clutch. It is just weird to shift without a clutch.

Sometimes it seems as if the transmission is smart enough to know when it needs to be in another gear if you forget to shift.

I don't think it's bad, I used to use it almost everyday for a year and never had problems with it, like others stated I wouldn't down shift on it either the good thing is that it downshifts automatically

It really depends how you're using it. From what you describe, it sounds like it's fine and more than likely, it's the same way your tranny would shift if you were heavy on the accelerator.

our transmissions are pretty smart.. if i remember correctly our cars are equipped with some sort of "rev-matching" so we dont blow our transmissions.. i could be wrong on this but i could have sworn i read that somewhere.

If you are speaking on the downshifting ours do not. The 07 and newer Infiniti G's do.

I could def understand that because if i shift 1st to 2nd it slams right in there but since i go to a higher rpm in 2nd going into 3rd kinda sounds like its trying to match, it doesnt go in, kinda slows down first. Thank u everyone for your insight i dont feel like im going to break the car doing this once and a while.. 8)

Basically like this bro. trannys are designed to switch gears at a certain point and certain rpm. It may not affect it now but it slowly wears on the gears when its not shifted at the right rpm/speed. i Choose to not use it at all inless im in stop and go traffic.but ultimately its your car use it how you will!!!

In my opinion it many people don't even know how to shift an Auto correct reducing the life of the transmission. As long as you don't use it EVERYDAY, ALL THE TIME, you should be OK.

If I had a 5spd Auto - I wouldn't be doing that at ALL due to all the known issues.

4spd Auto - I'm still on original tranny with 108K miles + nitrous. Haven't had any crazy transmission issues but I don't do auto shifting much.

I have 123K miles on my Max now, and lately I've been using the manual shift to get off the line or to rev up higher when I'm in 5th gear. And actually, if you put the car in Manual mode, it will shift on it's own once your RPMs get to certain level just as it down shifts on its own. I played with it yesterday and I watched shift from 1st to 2nd without me touching it.

I don't believe this hurts the transmission since it was designed to work in this fashion. But if you have signs of you're having issues with your transmission, I would definitely stop using it then.

I have an '06 SL and I watched mine shift on it's own. Not sure why mine wouldn't and yours wouldn't.
