1 is a lower gear has greater mechanical advantage, Some auto transmissions try to take off in second gear

if the transmission has been replaced then you must check for the vacuum hose for the shift modulator make sure it is connected, and check the detent cable that connects from the throttle to the transmission. make sure its connected and not too tight.

Some vehicle transmissions start off in second gear when the selector is in "D". They used to advise that people do this when driving in snow. Now vehicles are do it to save gas and raise the EPA MPG and their CAFE Numbers.
