How do manual transmissions work? We'll learn how clutches work, how gears work, and how shifting works with a detailed explanation using a 5-speed manual transmission as an example.
Manual transmissions are without a doubt one of the greatest and most enjoyable automotive inventions. But how do stick shifts work? It all starts at the engine, where the flywheel transmits power to a clutch disc that's sandwiched between the pressure plate. The clutch disc is splined to the transmission input shaft, which rotates the gear assembly. A selector fork allows the driver to choose which gear to select, and power will then be routed to an output shaft and then a differential, ultimately reaching the driven wheels. Manual transmissions are super cool, check out the video for details as to how they work!

What should you do if your car battery dies? Is it okay to jump the car and drive off, or is it better to use a battery charger, rather than relying on your alternator to charge the battery? This video will test various parameters of a car’s electric system to determine what effects will result from running with a dead battery, versus running with a charged battery. We’ll examine battery voltage (engine on and off), alternator voltage, alternator amps, and alternator temperature. Does a dead battery cause your alternator to overheat? We’ll find out in the video!
Note: If you’re stranded because of a dead battery, you should get your car jumped so you can get where you need to be. Obviously in emergency situations, do what’s safest for you, rather than what’s ideal for your car.
