well, if you know that the tranny fluid is low, then why not fill it up?

Well the more power part is not nec true. You are just keeping your transmission in third gear longer than it normally would. I believe it will automatically shift to 4th if the ecu sense that your rpms are to high for the gear(to protect your tranny). As far as shifting, guess it depends how you do it and how often. If you think you have a stick and your car is a race car then you will prob mess up the tranny sooner or later, on the other hand, I occasionally drive in d3 and when I know I will end up coasting for a while I'll move it to d4(as it will save gas).
