Is it doing damage to an automatic when you don't push the button as long as you've stopped before changing directions?


As long as you've stopped (the biggest damage culprit), there's no damage to the tranny by just shifting it. If there was going to be an issue, the manufacturer wouldn't allow you to do it in the first place. You cannot just shift from drive to neutral to reverse without pushing the button, but the opposite should be able to happen without issue.
