Features of driving with a manual box of gear shifting

General information

 At the movement on the road with a slippery covering intensive braking by the engine or excessively sharp dispersal can be led to loss of control over the car and, - as result, - to emergency collision. Observe extra care at the movement on the road with a covering which is not providing due coupling with car wheels.

The scheme of gear shifting is shown on an illustration. For ensuring smooth and unaccented switching all transfers of the forward course are synchronized. On many models the blocking device which excludes possibility of direct switching from the fifth transfer on transfer of a backing is provided in a transmission. When switchings a transmission "up" (on the highest steps) or "down" (on the lowest steps) completely squeeze out coupling. After transfer of the lever of switching of a transmission to the provision of the following transfer smoothly release a coupling pedal. During the movement to the chosen transfer completely remove a foot from a coupling pedal in order to avoid premature wear of components of the mechanism of the last.

Include transfer of a backing only after a full stop of the car. Attempt to include a reverse under way can lead to serious damage of a transmission. Before inclusion of a reverse gear completely switch off coupling and sustain short (in some seconds) a pause.

 Instead of a pause it is possible to make short inclusion of one of forward transfers. The described methods of inclusion of a backing allow to prevent shock inclusion of a reverse gear because of residual rotation of gear wheels.

For delay of the car it is possible to use braking by the engine, having switched a transmission to one of the lowered steps. Braking by the engine allows to control the speed of the movement of the car at the safe level and prevents an overheat of brake mechanisms at the movement on long descents with a considerable bias. Switch a transmission to the lowered steps consistently, in process of reduction of speed not to allow excess of the most admissible frequency of rotation of a cranked shaft of the engine on a tachometer. The arrow of a tachometer should not come into a red zone of a scale. In all cases
it is necessary to be guided by values of the maximum admissible speed of the car on the corresponding transfers (see below).

The recommended gear shifting moments

Try to move on the highest transfer providing in specific road conditions normal functioning of the engine at uniform motion and possibility of smooth dispersal of the car. Following of this recommendation will provide high profitability of the car and effective work of system of neutralization of the fulfilled gases. At gear shiftings be guided by the data provided in Specifications.

The most admissible speeds of the movement of the car on various transfers

In Specifications the maximum admissible speeds of the movement of the car are given in various transfers. At excess of the specified values of speed, the arrow of a tachometer will come into a red zone of a scale, specifying on is inadmissible the high frequency of rotation of a cranked shaft of the engine. Thus the electronic block of a control system of the engine starts limiting turns of a cranked shaft, reducing fuel supply that it is possible to feel it on change of power setting. Operation of the engine is normalized as soon as the arrow of a tachometer leaves a red zone of a scale.

In order to avoid breakage of the engine before transfer switching, be convinced that the arrow of a tachometer does not exceed the most admissible speed of the movement on this transfer and is not in a red zone of a scale.

Two-level reducer

The lever of switching of a two-level reducer is located to the left of the lever of the drive of the parking brake, behind the gear shifting lever.

The provision HI of a reducer is intended for the movement in normal conditions.

At the movement in cross-country conditions, and also in the mountain district when development of a bigger torque is required, it is necessary to switch a reducer in the situation LO. It is recommended to use the LO mode at start-off from a place uphill.

For switching of a two-level reducer in another it is necessary to squeeze out of one mode against the stop a pedal of coupling and to release gas. If the lever of switching is got jammed in situation, intermediate between HI and LO, make sure of completeness of an otpuskaniye of a pedal gas/squeezing of a pedal of coupling, then repeat attempt.
