In your Lincoln LS, you will have 3 transmission options to choose from. The first is the SelectShift, which operates similar to a manual transmission but without the clutch. The other 2 are the D4 and D5 options that you are referring to. The number after the D is really a reference to how many gears it will shift through. D4 = 4 gears, D5 = 5 gears. All that being said, it really should operate closer to a 4 gear transmission with an overdrive gear when the car is in D5. Think of it like the "drive" and "overdrive" in other cars. I have heard that to maximize fuel economy, use D5 for highway driving and D4 for city driving.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord Lx I just got with no manual . Which gear is for driving?


D4 is where you want to spend most of your time as this is the overdrive gear. About the only time you will need to run in D3 is if you are climbing steep grades or, if equipped with a tow kit, pulling a load.

When do I use the d 5 gear in in 2003 acura tl 3.2 liter


the car is quicker in d-4, but d-5 is like a overdrive on the open highway. good-day!! D4 for me unless I'm on the highway doing 55+. I think the car drives better in D4. I tend to get some hesitation between 30-50 in D5.

When do I use the d 5 gear in acura 2003 tl 3.2 liter


Pretty much all the time!

D3, D4, and D5 are all just *DRIVE* like on any automatic transmission, EXCEPT
that the number next to the D is the "highest gear the automatic transmission will go into".
The Acura just gives you a choice, in case you don't want to go into a higher gear (like if it's slippery traction or a steep hill, etc.)

1 means: Manual gear. FIRST GEAR ONLY.
2 means: Manual gear. SECOND GEAR ONLY.
D3 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 3rd gear.
D4 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 4th gear.
D5 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 5th gear.

What gear to drive in D-4 or D-5? a lincoln Ls


D5. This will use all 5 gears. D4 will not shift into 5th (overdrive). This causes higher revs on the highway, more noise and less fuel mileage. D4 is only really used when going down long hills for better engine braking. Leave it in d5 and let the cars computer do the shifting for you.
