How To Drive A Stick Shift Truck at Peninsula Memorial Park
Because you've familiarized yourself with the gear shift, pedals, steering wheel and their placement inside a manual car; it's time to learn moving into first gear and drive at slow speeds. For brand new drivers of stick shift cars, this can be especially tough, particularly if you've only ever used an automatic vehicle. To be truthful, you're probably going to get a couple sputters and false starts while you're still learning how to go into first gear on a manual car. If this happens to you, don't panic. You and your car's engine will be more than fine. You may be a little put off with how shaky it gets, but stick shift cars are made to survive a bit of wear and tear. Honestly, you're probably underestimating how sturdy they really are. Now, when you're doing manual transmission driving lessons, this is how any driving school or instructor will usually teach you to get a manual car into first gear. Slide the shifter knob to the N position with your right hand, press down on the brake pedal with your right foot and keep your left foot on the floor; once in position, turn the engine on. If you haven't already disengaged, make sure to pull up the hand brake. Then, take your left foot and press down on the clutch until you hit the floor. After that, gently push down on the gas pedal with your right foot until the RPMs get to 1500. When you're there, take care to keep your foot steady on the gas. Afterwards, count back from 7 seconds as you ease your left foot off of the clutch pedal. 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 manual transmission car rolling. After releasing the clutch, push 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. When stopped, slide the driving stick into the "N" position and engage the parking brake. When safely parked, pull up your feet from the clutch and brake pedals.
