A Lot Of People Make These Mistakes – 5 Things You Should Never Do With A Manual Transmission!

In this article we are going to talk about five bad habits you may fall into when driving a manual transmission car. This article is written because behind the scenes there are many things happening with the manual transmission that you may not be thinking about. The reason is that you don’t fully understand how it actually works. The first thing in our list is that you should never rest your hand on the gearshift in a manual transmission vehicle. You shouldn’t use it as a hand rest. Instead whenever you need to shift a gear – do the gear shift and then take your hand off and put it back on the wheel.

So, why shouldn’t you rest your hand on the gearshift? If you are leaving your hand on the gearshift while it’s in gear, what’s happening is that you are applying pressure on the selector in the transmission. You could find this in the owners manual of every vehicle. It is said – ‘Do not use the gearshift lever as a handrest. This can result in premature wear of the transaxle shift forks.’ Thing number two is leaving the vehicle in gear while you are sitting at a traffic light. You just have to put in neutral and remove your foot from the clutch. The next thing is how you could prevent rolling back on a hill?

If you don’t have a brake assistant you could accelerate while stepping on the gas pedal and removing your foot from the clutch slowly.
