I know that this is a stupid question but can I shift into drive from reverse gear without coming to a complete stop? I know you can shift manually from 1st to 2nd etc. but I'm unsure about reverse into drive. I've shifted from reverse to drive several times before without coming to a complete stop and everything seems to go fine. Doing this sure makes unparking your Titan easy. I just want to be sure I'm not doing anything that will do damage to the transmission.

I'm sure glad I have access to all of this collected brain power on Titan Talk!

I wouldn't recommend continued use of your tranny like that. I believe you are just causeing more wear and tear on your tranny. :computern

Amen to that.

We farmed out our fair share of newer trannies that had been mistreated; a lot of the old sloppy '60s trannies will stand some of that, but more modern highly engineered trannies won't.

A story as an example: Good buddy of mine said that his dealership (BMW/Saab) made real money fixing Saab trannies that were mistreated like this - the Saab just won't take it, and consequently got a bad rep. He owned a Saab that had come in for its third tranny and the owner was thoroughly ready to unload the car. My buddy bought the car for the next to nothing trade-in value plus a few hundred bucks, fixed the tranny, and drove it to 120,000 miles without doing anything else to the drivetrain. But he NEVER threw it into drive while going backward.

Moral of the story - don't do it unless you want to be fixing that transmission.
