Question type: General

Hi, I am wondering what happens with your car
after long time if you drive with one bad habit.
When you drive, instead of keep gas pedal
constantly and slow releasing and pressing you
drive and keep pressing and relealsing gas pedal. I
mean when you drive 70mph and instead of
keeping feet on the pedal, you press and release
pedal still repeatedly. Thank you.

You could ruin your transmission. You're putting a lot of stress on engine as well. Best thing is to keep steady speed with light pressure on pedal. Use cruise control if you have it, but still keep foot on pedal In case you need to stop suddenly.
