Engine Start/Stop


Auto Stop/Start is used to help cut down on vehicle emissions. The engine shuts off when the vehicle comes to rest then restarts by releasing the brake pedal or moving the steering wheel slightly.

 

An Auto Stop/Start is a feature on your vehicle, which helps improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When the car comes to a complete stop, the engine automatically pauses the vehicle operation since the speed falls below a particular speed limit. With this technology, your vehicle will conserve the fuel would have been consumed by the engine when the car stops at a traffic light and shifts the transmission to neutral. Your engine will restart back by releasing the brake pedal or slightly moving the steering wheel.
