go to somewhere flat and empty (like an empty parking lot) and put the car in first gear; then let the clutch out slowly, if the engine starts to die, give it just a little bit of gas. When you have the clutch all the way out, you're good. accelerate a little bit (up to about 3k rpm) and then let off the gas, push in the clutch, move the knob to second gear, and let the clutch back out and accelerate again. As you get more used to the car, you'll be able to engage the clutch faster, and shift smoother. learn how to engage with the gas pedal next (once you can get yourself rolling using just clutch, you'll be able to speed up the whole process and before you know it). after about ten minutes of this, you should be able to head out onto some empty roads and practice more. About 3 hours of practice on the road should leave you able to drive the car just fine. That's how my dad taught me to drive stick.

Lol, seriously. You buy a car you cant drive. You need to find a friend that knows how to drive a stick and let him teach you in person. You cant learn how to ride a bike on the internet what makes you think you can learn to drive a stick online?

push in the clutch to start the car making sure it's in neutral which is the middle of the stick shifter,,it'll go side to side that's how u know it neutral make sure ur emergency brake is engaged,too. then push in the clutch & start the car. as far as driving it remember push in the clutch when applying the brakes, when parking clutch & brake same time then pull up emergency brake..put into gear (any) turn off car then take ur feet off both pedals. don't worry it becomes 2nd nature after abit of practice. don't get discouraged it'll take some time getting used to it & that's ok :) rome wasn't built in a day,lol!! :) :)

I got an answer for ya...... Get your friend to teach you... no.... no better yet.... get him to take you to a street with no one there, preferably late at night. Step ONE: with the engine running, press the clutch to the floor, then place the shifter in the upward most left position (1st Gear). Step TWO: bring the RPM gage up to 4,000 RMPs and hold them there. The engine may get loud, don't worry!!!! It just means fun is about to happen!!! Step THREE: Just move your foot off the clutch all the way and hold the steering wheel.

Are you for real or are you just wasting time here? Gosh when I get in a car with an automatic transmission, I can't drive it because I can't find the clutch. I have to have my buddies tow me to the market and back. That sounds just a silly.
