- PARK (P)
- This position locks your rear wheels. It’s the best position to use when you start your engine because your vehicle can’t move easily.
- REVERSE (R)
- Use this gear to back up.
- To rock your vehicle back and forth to get out of snow, ice or sand without damaging your transmission, see If You Are Stuck:
- In Sand, Mud, Ice or Snow .
- NEUTRAL (N)
- In this position, your engine doesn’t connect with the wheels. To restart when you’re already moving, use NEUTRAL (N) only.
- DRIVE (D)This position is for normal driving. If you need more power for passing, and you’re:
RESPONSE If the transmission fluid level is full and the fluid looks clean it would indicate an internal issue. Most likely a sticking solenoid or failing solenoid.
Automatic Transmission OperationYour automatic transmission may have a shift lever located on the console between the seats or on the steering column. There are several different positions for your shift lever. If your vehicle is equipped with a column shift lever, it features an electronic shift position indicator within the instrument panel cluster. This display must be powered anytime the shift lever is capable of being moved out of PARK (P). This means that if your key is in OFF, but not locked, there will be a small current drain on your battery which could discharge your battery over a period of time. If you need to leave your key in the ignition in OFF for an extended period, it is recommended that you disconnect the battery cable from the battery to prevent discharging your battery.
- Going less than about 35 mph (55 km/h), push your accelerator pedal about halfway down.
- Going about 35 mph (55 km/h) or more, push the accelerator all the way down.
- THIRD (3)
- This position is also used for normal driving. It offers more power and lower fuel economy than DRIVE (D). You should use THIRD (3) when towing a trailer, carrying a heavy load, driving on steep hills or winding roads or for off-road driving.
- SECOND (2)
- This position gives you more power but lower fuel economy than THIRD (3). You can use SECOND (2) on hills. It can help control your speed as you go down steep mountain roads, but then you would also want to use your brakes off and on.
- FIRST (1)
- This position gives you even more power but lower fuel economy than SECOND (2). You can use it on very steep hills, or in deep snow or mud. If the shift lever is put in FIRST (1) while the vehicle is moving forward, the transmission won’t shift into first gear until the vehicle is going slowly enough.
