How To Use Stick Shift at Abundant Life Baptist Church
Once you get familiar with the controls of a manual auto, the next level is knowing how to get a manual transmission car into first gear. When you've only ever operated an automatic transmission vehicle, this will likely be very confusing for you. In fact, you're probably going to experience a couple of mistakes along the way, possibly even stall the vehicle while trying to maneuver your manual car in the first gear. But don't stress even if that happens. It's going to be a little shaky initially, but rest assured, standard transmission autos can take the hurt. Even if you might not expect it, standard transmission cars are quite resistant and tough. Now, when you take your manual transmission driving classes, this is how a driving teacher will usually teach you to change to first gear. First off, use your right hand to put the gear shifter in neutral, get your feet into position - right foot on the brake and left foot on the floor - then switch on the car's engine. If you haven't done it, make sure to release the emergency brake. Once finished, put your right foot on the gas and gradually push down until you get to 1500 RPMs on the tachometer. When you reach 1500, stop pressing down and just keep your foot steady on the gas pedal. Next, very slowly release the clutch with your left foot, counting down from 7 secs. Don't hasten and make sure to raise your foot slowly and gradually. If you're able to do it right, the clutch will engage and the wheels on the manual car will start turning. Once you've completely pulled your foot off of the clutch pedal, you can now start pressing down on the gas to pick up speed. Keep going until you hit 2500-3000 RPMs on the tachometer, then you can start decelerating the car. To slow down the manual vehicle, press the clutch with your left foot all the way to the floor. Then, get your foot off of the gas and start pushing down on the brake. Expert tip: Always, ALWAYS, push the clutch first before the brake. When you have your right foot pressing the brake all the way to the floor, the automobile should be at a complete stop. Once the car has stopped, change the shift lever back to "N" placement and pull up the emergency brake. Afterwards, you can take your feet off of the brake and clutch pedals.
