How To Learn Manual at Calvary Cemetery
And now that you've oriented yourself with the gear shift, pedals, steering wheel and their placement inside a manual vehicle; it's time to learn changing into first gear and drive at slow speeds. For beginner drivers of manual transmission vehicles, this can be especially tough, especially if you've only ever operated an automatic transmission. To be frank, you're probably going to get a couple sputters and false starts while you're still learning how to shift into 1st gear on a manual transmission vehicle. When it occurs to you, don't sweat it. You and your vehicle's engine will be more than alright. You might just be a little put off with how shaky it gets, but manual transmission vehicles are created to survive a bit of wear and tear. Honestly, you're probably underestimating how sturdy they really are. Now, when you're doing stick shift driving lessons, this is how any driving school or instructor will usually teach you to get a manual vehicle into first gear. Slide the shifter knob to the "N" position with your right hand, push down on the brake pedal with your right foot and keep your left foot on the floor; once in position, switch the engine on. If you haven't already disengaged, make sure to pull up the parking brake. Next, take your left foot and push down on the clutch pedal until you hit the floor. Then, gently push down on the gas pedal with your right foot until the RPMs hit 1500. Once you're there, take care to keep your foot steady on the accelerator. Afterwards, count back from 7 seconds as you ease your left foot off of the clutch. Do this very carefully and keep it as consistent as possible. When done correctly, you'll hit the clutch bite point and it will get the stick shift vehicle rolling. After releasing the clutch, press down on the gas to pick up speed with your stick shift car. Keep going until you hit 2500 to a max 3000 RPMs with the engine, then you can start slowing down. To successfully decelerate, practice your clutch work again, starting with pushing the clutch pedal fully. Then, move your right foot to the brake pedal from the gas. Important to note here, the clutch ALWAYS comes before the brake. When you've pressed the brake down to the floor, the stick shift car should stop. Once stopped, move the driving stick into neutral position and engage the parking brake. When safely parked, pull up your feet from the clutch and brake pedals.
