Individuals associated with the automotive industry iterate that the automatic transmission is a
great invention. Actually, an automatic car has opened up a whole new world for
car owners. Both professional and novice drivers love to drive a
car fitted with automatic transmission. This is because it is straightforward
and easy to drive an automatic vehicle than a car fitted with the manual-shift
gearbox. Think about the bumper-to-bumper story we have in the cities! However,
it is very important to drive a car with automatic transmission carefully
because you could end up damaging your car. Some damages, if they happen,
cannot be rectified even by expert mechanics. Therefore, it is best that you
avoid the following mistakes when driving your automatic vehicle.

CRDi stands for Common Rail Direct Injection meaning, direct injection of the fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine via a single, common line, called the common rail which is connected to all the fuel injectors.
Whereas ordinary diesel direct fuel-injection systems have to build up pressure anew for each and every injection cycle, the new common rail (line) engines maintain constant pressure regardless of the injection sequence. This pressure then remains permanently available throughout the fuel line. The engine's electronic timing regulates injection pressure according to engine speed and load. The electronic control unit (ECU) modifies injection pressure precisely and as needed, based on data obtained from sensors on the cam and crankshafts. In other words, compression and injection occur independently of each other. This technique allows fuel to be injected as needed, saving fuel and lowering emissions.
