For those who are new to driving, a manual transmission car is always a top priority, at driving training centers in Vietnam most of the cars used in driving lessons are different types of MT manual transmissions. In automatic transmission, in addition to the brake and accelerator pedals, manual transmission models are also equipped with a clutch pedal (clutch foot) to control, besides, the structure of the manual transmission is more complicated than that of an automatic transmission. .
With a more complex structure than an automatic transmission, a manual transmission car is equipped with an additional clutch pedal (clutch foot), so driving a manual transmission car undergoes many operations that require the learner to coordinate smoothly.
How to Drive a Manual Transmission Safely
Step 1: Get acquainted and locate the clutch foot
For those who have just learned to drive or are behind the wheel of a manual transmission vehicle for the first time, the coordination of the accelerator, brake and clutch pedals is very important, different from automatic transmission car drivers who operate manual transmissions. need 1 feet at once, the left foot is on the clutch pedal to pedal and release the clutch, the clutch foot is located in front of the driver's foot and located to the right of the brake pedal. Besides, the right foot is used to coordinate between the brake and accelerator.
Step 2: Control the gearbox
The clutch, brake, and accelerator systems are closely related to the gearshift before the driver needs to be familiar with the numbering scheme, the gear shift diagram depends on each of these diagrams drawn on the gear lever, the schematic diagram. The map is usually H-shaped, most manual car models today are often equipped with different 6-speed gearboxes.
Step 3: Start and control the car to move
The next step the driver will start and control the car to move in the specified driving direction, a small note for car drivers in the morning should let the engine run in standby mode for about 1 minute before driving. Action to avoid engine corrosion and damage after a long period of inactivity, next to move the vehicle forward, the driver needs to fully depress the clutch pedal, the brake pedal returns the gear lever to the 1st position. From the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal, open the clutch to slowly let the car move forward, the coordination process between the accelerator and the clutch is not a simple process for those who are new to manual transmission cars.
If you release the clutch pedal too quickly, the car will stall and release the clutch pedal too slowly and enter the accelerator too quickly, the exhaust pipe of the car will make a loud bang and affect the engine, so it is necessary to coordinate smoothly between the two. these 2 moves.
Step 4: Shift gears and accelerate
When the vehicle is in motion, the driver who wants to accelerate can apply a direct force to the accelerator when hearing the loud gas sound, the engine is located at 1 rpm / min, then just pedal all the way of the clutch to shift to 2000nd gear, A small note that vehicles should not step on the clutch when necessary, besides that, it is necessary to practice the "clue to and from the throttle" action, that is, to reduce the throttle to quickly shift the gear and release the clutch slowly in combination with increasing the throttle to help the clutch. the car is not abrasive, stronger to avoid engine inertia when the car has operated smoothly on the road, we need to repeat the process of shifting to a higher gear to speed up the movement of the car. Follow the experts to guide the appropriate speed for each gear level
|from 5 to 10km/h
|from 10 to 15km/h
|from 15 to 30km/h
|from 35 to 40km/h
|from 45km/h or more
To perform the reverse process, it is necessary to perform a gear shift operation, especially the gear lever needs to shift to R gear and coordinate smoothly between the brake and clutch pedals to adjust the reverse speed of the vehicle.
Step 5: Slow down and stop the car
When the vehicle is moving at a steady speed and you want to slow down, the driver must change gears according to the reverse procedure.
Note: when increasing the number can increase the number in order from low to high when decreasing the number you need depends on the speed. In case you need to park your car at a certain location for a long time, the best way is to put the gear lever in N, then let go of the left clutch pedal and pull the handbrake to ensure safety to avoid the car being hit. slide.
