5 Things You Should Never Do With A Manual Transmission Vehicle. Five bad stick shift driving habits. Is it okay to rest your hand on the gearshift? Should you put the car in neutral when you come to a stop? How can you prevent rolling back on a hill? How do you drive a manual on a steep hill? How to hill start.

      EE Guy: One error you are definitely making is that you say it's not going to wear out the brake, rather than more accurately saying "the amount of wear is so small that it should never become a factor, in the life of the car".

      I know you sort of imply that, but what you state outright is the opposite, and therefore technically wrong. This is going to cause people who initially thought otherwise to dig in and disbelieve you.

      Precision in wording solves a lot of problems.

      If your leg gets tired from holding down the clutch or the brake I don't think you're fit to drive physically and you should file for disability, also register for transportation. That or you're just goddamn lazy

      Mad that you don’t get taught hill starting, in the uk it’s part of the driving test

      Actually sitting at a stop light in neutral is very dangerous. If you have to take off quickly in an emergency (run away car or someone flying up behind you) the time it takes to clutch in and select gear could be very costly. All good driving instructors teach you this on day one.

      Why would you have to involve the hand break in a hill start? just do it with the regular break pressed and let go of it once the clutch bites.

      When I (re-) took my drivers licence last year, I asked about some of these from my driving instructor. He actually advised opposite on several points. For example, for driving uphill, it was advised to balance gas and clutch, and it was also advised to always use the highest possible gear for best fuel economy. He said it was more of a problem on older cars, and the modern cars used for instruction don't get excessive wear on clutch with that driving style.

      4:30 I agree so much with this but its odd because i recently watched a manual transmission video "how manual tranmissions work" and they actually said to release the clutch pedal some when on incline to hold you in place then press the gas while releasing the clutch but I hate the thought and i use my ebrake when on a hill or sometimes i just release the clutch fast while gassing it.

      Well, nobody really uses clutch to hold a car on a hill. It's just another one and, in my opinion, the safest technique to start moving. While it wears your clutch a little more, it almost gurantees that you won't roll back or stall

      Awesome video. being a manual driver for most of my life, I actually learned a few new things.

      Thank you for posting!

      And you speak very well and thorough, there was alot of info but it was easy to follow along with what was being said.

      Does the engine rpm automatically go up when you downshift?

      Technically it will, but it's bad for your engine. Always try to match RPM when shifting.
