 Is it OK to Shift Manual Car Gears Out of Order?


Transmission shifts in manual cars are generally adjusted to the RPM or engine speed. However, it is not uncommon for manual car users to change gears not sequentially, when accelerating speed or when slowing down the car's speed. If it's not done often and only in a few conditions, changing gears out of sequence doesn't have a bad effect. Although it can be done, the recommended way to change gears is sequentially and adjusts to the speed of the car at that time. In general, moving the transmission out of sequence can have a bad effect on the performance of the car and also the components of the car's engine, one of which is the thinning of the clutch lining. Because torque and power can be less," explained Bambang Supriyadi, Executive Coordinator of the Technical Division Service of PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM) on Kompas.com, at FGM recently. If the gear is moved not according to speed, the car engine can jam. or even die.” So for example, first gear to third or fifth gear. Later it can die or get stuck (the engine of the car)," said Bambang. In addition to damaging the engine, the habit of randomly shifting gears can also make the car's performance decrease. It can cause the car engine to feel stuck or drive at an unstable speed. This is caused by the speed of the car. which does not match the transmission. So, the recommended way of changing gears is sequentially and adjusted to the torque, so that the engine works according to the transmission used at that time. "Yes, the recommendation is that (shift gears sequentially). Because, the sequence will also feel the driver will get it," he said. Each car has a different ideal gearshift time. So, the driver needs to know the right gearshift time on his car, according to the provisions in the book. Manual. Driving a manual transmission car can't be separated from shifting gears or gears. The way it works is according to the speed when driving, so it can be comfortable and safe while on the road. In operating this gear shift, it also shouldn't be arbitrary, it must be on time. Beginners, sometimes still make mistakes when shifting the transmission lever. It is not uncommon for these errors to cause a loud "crack" sound when the transmission gear is shifted. suppressed. That way, then all the energy will be released, ie between the flywheel or flywheel with the clutch cover or clutch cover is free. “In this condition, the rotation of the engine is not moving the transmission gear. Only then can the acceleration gear shift be carried out," said Suparna to Kompas.com some time ago. If the steps taken are correct, Suparna added, the transmission gear will move smoothly or smoothly. This is partly because of the synchromesh gear shifting system. “When we move with the transmission stick, we have braked the rotation of the transmission gear. So that there is no collision, but if it is not correct, you will hear a "crack" sound," he said. In addition to shifting the transmission gear when the vehicle is moving forward, what also needs to be considered is when you want to use the reverse gear. Suparna said, if the vehicle is going backward, it is better to shift gears and wait until the vehicle stops. This happens because when the car has not stopped completely but the transmission lever has been shifted, it is likely that a "crack" sound will occur. Although, the clutch pedal has been stepped on when shifting gears. "If you want to go backward, you should wait, don't move the transmission didi immediately, you will hear a sound," he said. Dealer Technical Support Dept. Head of PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) Didi Ahadi said, shifting the transmission gear on a manual car should follow the vehicle user manual. . "When shifting the reverse gear, you should wait until the car stops before shifting the gear," he said. For drivers who are used to
using manual cars, of course this is not a problem, even if it's already out of hand. But what about drivers who are not used to using manual cars? This condition is certainly not an easy thing, considering that when driving an automatic car, the transmission can switch automatically.
