    If you can't figure out what gear you should be in with an automatic do you think a stick shift is gonna be a good idea, lol, jk

    Omg...

    Put it in d4 all the time. It's an automatic transmission, that means it shifts automatically
    If you put it d3 it still shifts normally it just won't go into 4th gear, thats all. It doesn't shift any quicker or downshift or anything. Just leave it in d4 and go.
