In my last article i stated the most important parts of a manual car and their uses,for those who followed my page understand. Today is on how to drive a manual car,in my next article you will see how to use the gear and clutch.
This is how to start and drive a manual car
1). Getting in the car and put on your seat belt as shown in the picture above
2). Put the key in the ignition and turn all the way until the engine starts i.e. when you put the key in the ignition,turn the key to the right to start the engine.
3). Put the clutch pedal down( the pedal is always on the left side) as shown in the picture.
4). Don't release your leg from the clutch, then move the gear stick into the first gear
5). Use your right foot to press down on the accelerator gently to increase the engine's revs very slightly.
6). Slowly lift the clutch pedal using your left foot until it starts to vibrate gently.
7). This vibration is known as the car's " bite point" this is where the clutch plates start to come together.
8). Remove the hand brake and the car should start to move slowly ( the hand brake is beside you on your right,you press it down to make the car move and you raise it up to stop the car). I will explain the usefulness of hand brake. Follow my page to learn more.
9). Increase the rev's while slowly raising your foot off the clutch until you are moving forward with only the use of the accelerator pedal.
Remember if you're to quick lifting your foot off the clutch, or don't give it enough rev's,the car will stall: that's where engine cuts out and the red lights glows on the dashboard.
If you stall apply the brakes,turn the engine off,return the gear stick to neutral and begin the process again.
Follow my page to learn how to apply the gear and clutch together.
