What safety gear do you need for a car?

All cars have a neutral gear and all cars will start in neutral. It is recommended by all vehicle manufactures that the car's transmission be left in either park or neutral and that the emergency brake be set. If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, then PARK is the safest gear, but most cars have manual transmission and no park gear, so the safest gear is NEUTRAL with the parking brake engaged.

Most automatic transmissions do not have a filler plug or cap. The transmission fluid is added by using a long-neck funnel, which is placed in the tube the dipstick for the transmission sits in. Be sure to test the level while the engine is running, with the transmission in either park or neutral. Be very careful not to over fill the transmission, and make sure that you have the right kind of transmission fluid for your vehicle.

The transmission fluid in an automatic transmission is added through the same tube that the dipstick sits in. For adding fluid, it is best to purchase a long-neck funnel, which is made just for this purpose. Be careful not to overfill the transmission. Always check the fluid level with the engine running, the transmission in either 'park' or 'neutral', and the vehicle on level ground.

Can a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder be towed behind a motorhome?

If you have a manual transmission, all you have to do to flat tow it is put it into neutral. If it's a 4x4 and you have a manual transfer case, you can manage by putting the transfer case in neutral, whether it has an automatic or manual transmission. If it's a 2WD with an automatic, or a 4x4 with both an automatic transmission and an electronic transfer case with no neutral position, you'll need a trailer or else you'll need to remove either the driveshafts or axle shafts.

How do you get a car in neutral without the keys?

If manual transmission, depress the clutch and move the shift lever into neutral. If automatic transmission, you will need the keys to unlock the shifter mechanism. There is no other way around it. As a side note, you will not be able to removed the key in neutral either as it must be in Park. Either way, with the auto trans, one is hosed.

Why does your transmission go into neutral at 25 mph?

Poor information. If it is an automatic, most likely the 3rd gear is out (It's actually in 3rd gear, but with no clutch plates, it just slips) or on an Electronic Automatic, either the above or a shift solenoid isn't reacting to signal (bad). Vehicle specific would help
