Downshifting

Proper downshifting will improve fuel economy and prolong engine life.

If you skip more than one gear while downshifting or downshift at too high CAUTION!

If you skip more than one gear while downshifting or downshift at too high a vehicle speed, you could damage the engine, transmission, or clutch.

To maintain a safe speed and prolong brake life, shift down to second or first gear when descending a steep grade.

When turning a corner or driving up a steep grade, downshift early so that the engine will not be overburdened.
