Default How do you shift an automatic? honda civic 2007?

I know you don't shift gears when using an automatic transmission but what I want to know is the function "S" in a honda civic? what is it? D is for Drive. What is S??? and how do shift from D to S? do u have to release the gas pedal??

you shouldn't have to.... sounds like you wanna do shift down.... just change the gear while you have full acceleration. you might be experiencing some push on the engine or the car... don't worry it's just the engine trying to do as you are commanding it. "Shift Down/Over Drive". it may not work if you current speed is less than 60mph

you can shift gears in a auto by shifting the gears shifter to 1 which is 1st gear and same for 2nd and so on As for the s its for racing S=sport it makes the tranny shift at higher rpms. you should be able to shift it on the fly when ever you want just dont have your foot on the gas pedle when you do.

This is the manumatic feature in the auto tranny. You do not have to lift the gas pedal ever when shifting up or down, and it will work at whatever speed you are doing. If you do not know a lot about agressive driving, you want to start off keeping at eye on your tach rpm. When shifting down, your rpm will go up a couple thousand revs. Make sure you are under the max speed for that gear, so as not to burn your engine out. Although there is a rev limiter on your car, the momentary rev spike is still bad for the engine. After you get the hang of it with some practice, it should be quite fun to play around with while driving fast, because you can control the power delivery ahead of time.

The 's', is simpy: slow... The gear ratios are larger so if you are in a steep surface the gearbox uses 2 slow gears, so the engine wont get tired

I would say Jason B is on the right track. On my car the S is electronic on the side of my shifter. When it is engaged it means sport shift and your car shifts at a higher rpm to get max speed in every gear. I shift on the fly. Hope this helps.
