Post question about automatics....

Ok, say your spinning in the snow and your car is an automatic. If you just hit the gas pedal hard and the car just sits there, spinning, will it ever change out of 1st gear? Ok, another question. Is there any way to get an AWD to power brake? ME and my friends were just wondering. Thanks everyone.

Have a Nice Day?

I don't think with the auto the car will sit there spinning at all, it will tranfer power around until it finds something there and it will eventually. No you can't powerbrake an all wheel drive car, even if you can I wouldn't suggest doing it if you value your center differential at all. The tow trucks are coming please hand the authority figures your keys your new honda civic will arrive shortly

You can power brake an AWD car... but I think what you're asking is if you can do a standing burnout like a FWD or RWD car. The answer to that is no, unless there's a wall in front of the car, & it's really slippery out.

If the car is in drive it will shift allt he way through the gears. If you have it in 1 the rev limiter will stop the car from over revving. Both of which are not good for the car. And you can't power break one since it is AWD.

You can power brake... plant your left foot on the brake & give it enough gas until you feel it start to move, and then floor it as you let go of the brake! You can power brake any automatic!

Standing burnouts are a different story, however...

I'm gonna tell you a secret... that's in the owners manual. If you're stuck in snow, just put the shifter in second gear. That way, you bypass 1st, and the car starts out in second gear. It will definetly help you get out of a parking spot that's freshly plowed in. Read the owners manual though.
