Best Answer

P = Park

R = Reverse

N = Neutral

D = Drive

You move the lever to the positions like P if the car is parked, R to reverse the car and D when you drive forward. Remember for safety the car will not start unless the lever is on P or N and the keys will not come out unless you put the lever in P

Do you need to stop the car in order to shift gears when driving an automatic transmission?

you must stop the car to switch from/to drive, park, reverse. no, you don't have to switch from 1st, to 2nd, to 3rd. that's what's automatic no, you dont have to stop to change between all forward gears ie 1 st 2 nd 3 ed 4 th all that is done automatically, you dont even have to think about it. no need to stop when manually shifting gears(ie racing your automatic) if you like to choose when you automatic changes from 1st to 2nd to D to OD you can, usually you can up shift from 1st to 2nd to D to OD by just pushing the sifter to the next gear but not OD to D to 2nd to 1st because of detents in the shifter will catch the shifter, unless you press the button or pull back the column shifter and down shift. last gear(D)to netural(N) you usually can freely move back and forth. just dont try to push the button and go into R (for race) while your driving it will destroy you transmission and put you in the ditch or on comming trafic. dont go from D to 1 or you will probably red line your engine and blow it!!!

What is the deference between aoutomatic and stick-shift?

The difference between automatic and stick shift is many. Automatic is normally any car that has the selecter in the interior going P N R D 1 2 and that basically selects the way your vehicle travels. In Standard or Manual, or Stick Shift its just where you are always selecting the gears going from 1- up depending on how many gears your car has and the reverse gear. Neutral or N is normally found in the middle of the shifting pattern. Also Standard has a clutch which you must use to disengage the engine from the transmission. That's the 3rd foot pedal.

What P R N D 2 L?

Indicates gear positions of the automatic transmission; P=Park, R=Reverse, N=Neutral, D=Drive (transmission will automatically shift through all forward gears), 2=2nd gear (transmission will only shift from Low to 2nd gear), L=Low gear. Little known fact: In the auto business the indicator that displays this information is actually referred to as the "PRENDELO."
