Just a query - can I irreversably damage my auto gearbox by doing 60mph
in gear 3 (3rd gear)...? I was driving to work this morning and thought
"oops, I'm in 3rd gear doing 60!!" the engine was labouring and I
thought "why's this happening?" then I enspied the dash......

Renate, worrying again !! I can't see how you can damage the auto box by
doing this - but - I can guarantee an emptying of the wallet by using
more fuel !!!

Funny you should say that - just as well I filled it with diesel before
new year! - so I guess then, the only damage is yet more expense on
diesel....

It was nearing 3000-3200 revs I guess, but I suppose where I take it,
it doesn't really matter so long as the respective cables are adjusted
before I go, so I can get away in the red zone and still be okay!
Odd thing - I swear this cleared out the injectors a little...

My user manual quotes a max allowable speed of 36 mph in "L" and 70 mph in "2".
I don't know what "3" would be (this manual only mentions "L", "2", "D" & overdrive) - maybe your transmission is different, but I'm sure that 60mph won't hurt it. Maybe the oil would get dizzy though ....

Maybe the oil would get a little light headed, but it seemed to run
smoother and quicker off the mark, after this slight hiccup on the M32!
