Is It Bad to Skip Gears in a Manual Car?

There are many differences between automatic and manual transmissions in San Jose, and they have to do with the way the gears match up. If you’re trying to skip over one or more gears in a manual car, you need to know how to do it right or pay the price. Watch this video and see when it’s bad to skip gears in a manual car.

Poor shifting can wear out your clutch and affect your transmission, so make sure you know how to do it properly. If you’re upshifting, all you need to do is wait longer for the revolutions to slow down to protect your clutch. If you release the clutch sooner than you should, your car will lurch, and your clutch will slightly wear. When downshifting in a manual car, match the revolutions by adding more throttle, or you’ll change the balance of your vehicle.
