What does the S stand for on a gear shift?

"S" is for sport. If you're driving on twisty country roads and want to keep the RPM up as you wind through corners, the "S" position is where you want to be. In "S", the transmission holds lower gears longer for more power as you come out of the curves.

What does B stand for on automatic car?

The B means Brake or engine brake in your gear shift. When you are going down on the gradient road, it is recommended to shift the car in B mode. It engages the engine braking, and your car won't free-fall down the slopes and increase the entire drag.

What does L stand for in automatic transmission?

L stands for low gear. When your car is in drive, or D, the automatic transmission will shift through the gears as your speed increases. When your car is in low, or L, the transmission won't shift. Instead, it remains in a low gear, and less fuel is injected into the engine.

What does Prndb mean in a car?

PRNDL — pronounced 'prindle' — is an acronym for 'Park-Reverse-Neutral-Drive-Low,' the sequence of the shift pattern on 100 per cent of automatic-equipped cars since, well, maybe the last Ice Age. Sometimes the 'L' is replaced with 'S' (Sport), or 'M' (Manual), but the general sequence is the same.

What is S mode driving?

“S” on the gear box of an automatic is sports mode. What it does is increases the power of the car allowing the car to rev more. It changes up gears later and changes down faster to keep the engine revs up and give more power.

Can you shift from D to S while driving?

You can definitely switch from D to S while driving, just don't do it while pedal to the floor. Even that is probably safe as the computers won't let it hurt the car, so it will only shift when its safe to do so regardless of what you ask it to do via the lever.

What is D and S in automatic car?

A traditional automatic gearstick has a PRNDS layout—P for park, R for reverse, N for neutral, D for drive, and S for sport mode. Certain gearsticks have an L (low) setting, which keeps vehicle speed low and engine speed high, for more pulling power.

What does N mean on a car?

The “N” is an indicator that your automatic transmission is in NEUTRAL or a free spinning mode. This setting releases the gear(s) (forward and reverse) and allows the tires to spin freely. Most people do not use the N setting unless their car engine will not start and they need to push it or have the vehicle towed.

What gear is used for driving uphill?

When you are going uphill, slow down before the turn, shift down to a lower gear and accelerate through the turn. A very important point to remember here is that you need to be highly observant if any car is coming from above. For downhill, again slow down before the turn and take your foot off the accelerator.

What is 1st gear used for?

Low gear, also known as first gear, is a mode on both manual transmissions and automatic vehicles, which restricts the amount of fuel injected into the engine. This mode helps to boost torque while decreasing engine speeds.
