Despite the fact that starting the car with a mechanical transmission with space is a required part of a course of driver education in driving schools, many novice drivers, having finished training and having the right, to the end and do not understand the essence of the ongoing process of the beginning of the movement. Let's try to break it down — or rather, to break the process of starting off into its components.

First phase

The engine is running and warmed up, seat belts fastened, lights. signaling the beginning of the movement (direction indicators) included, therefore ready to start driving. Bringing his left leg out of dormancy, you should put it on the clutch pedal, then with a firm touch, without interruption and unnecessary slowness, depress the clutch pedal until it stops. What part of the foot to press the pedal? Hardly someone will begin to push the pedal with your heel (4), because it is very uncomfortable. The upper part of the foot (1), where the toes is the most sensitive, however, unable to provide enough pressure on the pedal. Hollow foot (3) – the strongest part of it, however, are not sensitive and can not control the effect of depression. The right to work with clutch pedal will use the land use of foot cushions (2). Squeeze the clutch pedal and engaging first gear, you press the right foot on the accelerator pedal to increase the engine speed to about 1500 rpm or, as the drivers "to give a little gas". Without weakening the pedal should smoothly release the clutch pedal, allowing the spring to lift it up about a quarter of its course. The heel of the left foot should be hanging in the air or in millimeters from the floor. Continuing to release the clutch pedal, it is necessary to catch the position at which the engine speed will decrease, its hum will be a low frequency, there will be a slight vibration of the body, and the car starts a slight movement.

Second stage

In this position, when the drive plate of the clutch mechanism begins to come into contact with the slave disk trying to spin it due to friction forces, the clutch pedal needs to hold for 1-2 seconds.

Third step

The most responsible. If you abruptly release the clutch pedal, the engine will stall, and the car abruptly jerks to a stop their budding movement. The reason is that the machine has not received the required inertial motion, and the power developed by the engine, more precisely, torque will not be enough to give the car the acceleration needed to continue the movement. Therefore, you should gently, one might even say, gently, releasing the pressure on the clutch pedal to ensure it is lifting up by about 10-15 mm within another 1-2 seconds. During this time, the slave drive will spin the lead, their velocities will be equal and they are tightly in contact, providing a reliable connection of the engine with the transmission. As a result, all the power developed by the engine will be used for the rotation of the wheels and the car starts to move.

Fourth stage

The easiest and fastest. Quite simple and simple to take your foot off the clutch and put it in its place, the left pedal is convenient and comfortable having rested it on the floor of the car. The pedal in the absence of her oppressive forces under the influence of spring yourself back to the starting position. Good luck to you! No nail, no wand!
