    I have a 2014 double cab 4.6 litre tundra. I'm a bit confused about my "S" gear on my transmission. It seems if i leave it in "D" drive to do normal around town driving it defaults to S-4. I change it to S-6 then back to "D" and it goes back to S-4. Can i drive in "S" all the time? It seems this is my overdrive.
    Appreciate any help.

    It's probably because your engine temp isn't warm enough for 5th or 6th. I think it needs to be at 140° before going into those gears. Please experiment and let us know if that's the case.

    I keep it in D and never use S.

    His question is hard to understand. But whenever you put it in the S mode it always starts as a four speed. And I always use S. D is for the highway and I don't even use it then I use S and upshift accordingly. I feel that if you're not careful when using D your transmission will be short-lived. JMHO

    "S" Mode = Sequential mode (not sport or standard)
    You should be able to put it in D and keep it in D. It shouldn't automatically take you out of D and into S.
    When S is selected you can keep it on S-4. The truck will downshift as you slow and up shift up to S-4 as normal. This is unlike a true manual mode. Once you reach S-4 you can red line it and it wont shift up higher until you select S-5.
