Very bad tutorial !! I already know how to drive stick not sure why I watch these videos at 3am but if you’re learning how to drive stick don’t listen to this fool. For first gear you don’t need 1500 rpm. You gotta find your catching point on your clutch every car is different. You can start moving and shift from 1st to second without even using you gas pedal , just the clutch. This wasn’t an in depth tutorial. Where’s downshifting , where’s rev matching ?
I’m from the uk, say your at a junction and you go into first, once you have stopped do you have to use the clutch to pull away or is the first gear still available to pull away? (I am an experienced driver) just haven’t drove in a while.
Currently learning how to drive on a manual 1996 Saturn Sl1, I find it difficult to feel the grab point and know when I can fully release the clutch. Sometimes I release it too fast and the car lurches Forward. Any tips?
but, why downshift? I have driven manual in Sri Lanka when I was very young and don't remember jack about it. I have a Camry 2014 that has auto and manual no clutch. What I don't get is when I'm accelerating when the rpm gets to 3 I shift up. But, after I stop the car do I downshift to first and start going up through the gears all over?
Based on my whole experience on driving a manual as a beginner, the one thing that freaks me out and confuses me so much is the gear one, why? Because when your on a corner situation u have to slowdown and change gear back to gear one and u know u have to move quickly bcuz of incoming vehicle and yet u stalled in the middle of the road because of releasing the clutch and also pushing the throttle carefully at the same time and there is a vehicle behind u honking u to move quickly. It really confuses me so badly that i kinda freaked out. But i hope one day i become an expert driver driving on a manual just like my dad (srry about my english grammar 😀)
Thank you, my problem is that I don't pull and push the Clutch and the Gas pedals well at the start
I'm going to try that to get it in 1500RPM and pull the clutch one even slower
Could someone give me a tip?
I have a 2011 Nissan mexican Tidda
This video taught me how to drive manual thank you! Bought a manual car 3 years ago and never knew how to drive it. After watching this it took me 1 hour and I was ready to street race anyone thst parked beside me on a red light
Can anyone help me with this? I have a modern car with a manual 6 speed transmission (2017 year) so it definitely has synchronizer rings but some videos say it is better to double clutch when shifting. Is this true or false? How much longer will the synchronizer rings last if I double clutch shift instead of normal shifting?
Just do this, EASY WAY OUT- Press the clutch and lock the handbrake, shift into first, press the gas pedal till it redlines, till it touches the red line and release the clutch and handbrake together, you may see some smoke behind you but that is normal these days, there you go, easy and safe way to start :) thank me later
A 2009 Honda Civic SI with a manual transmission? Interesting. I say "interesting" because I was under the impression that damn near all automobile manufacturers stopped making cars with manual transmissions sometime between 2000 and 2010. As I make this comment, it is 2018. Are there any new cars made now with manual transmissions? Just curious. By the way, I already know how to drive one.
I didn't watch this video in its entirety, so I cannot comment one way or another on its usefulness, besides, like I already said, I already know how to drive a manual transmission vehicle. ( I suppose I COULD be interested in a YouTube video showing how to drive a Kenworth or Peterbilt manual transmission with a splitter properly. I once had a job driving an old International truck with one of those splitters you generally pulled up with some effort--I don't think I ever got the hang of that thing!)
I will say that learning to drive a manual transmission is best done manually--that is hands on. Find someone that is a little bit fearless and very patient to teach you.
