What in a stickshift car to the left of the foot-brake pedal and push you down to shift gears?
The clutch pedal.
There is a little pedal on the left side by your foot. If you put your foot under it and raise up that will shift through the gears. You have to hold the clutch in between gears though. The clutch is usually on the left handle bar and looks like the brake. To down shift step down on the pedal while holding the clutch in.
try to make sure the clutch pedal is all the way down before you change gear. in no way shape or form should you have to floor the clutch everytime you shift gears, however, if you are still grinding gears while flooring the clutch, and if there isn't that little bit of give on the pedal i'd suggest adjusting or replacing the clutch.
What is the problem when gears take long to shift on a 97 jetta and when they do shift they jerk and also makes a grinding noise?
I own a M30 from what I understand it has a Steptronic Transmission which means that to shift gears you have to do it yourself with the gas pedal I found that best time to shift gears was around 3500 rpm's at that pt I release the gas and then wait for it to go down to about 1500 rpms or so and then reapply my ft and repeat... like a stick shift on training…

4 cylinder means how many cylinders (like cans kind of) in which gas is sprayed and air combines and then is ignited to make power. The more cylinders the more combustion and in theory more power, all things equal. It typically means more gas consumption too. Secondly, automatic relates to the transmission. That means you do not need to shift gears, because the car does it for you. As opposed to a manual transmission, otherwise…
What causes the gears in a Mercedes Benz A class 160 automatic gearbox to slip and not shift up to higher gears?
Could be a bunch of stuff, but some of the earlier Fieros had an issue with the shaft connected to clutch pedal bending which would cause the clutch to not fully disengage. When your car's not running you can shift gears all day without pushing in the clutch. Try that when your fiero's running and all you'll do is chew gears.
Why does my mercury villager make a loud noise when accelerating that stops when you take your foot off the pedal?
One marking says Brazil. Another says SPFF20030. Another is 2BR. How do I determine the transmission type I have?
Your transmission does not know how far you have the accelerator pressed. Some cars have a cable that runs between the throttle and transmission to 'tell' the transmission how far you have the gas pedal pressed. Some cars use electronic sensors to 'tell' the transmission how far you have the pedal pushed. It sounds like your transmission 'thinks' your gas pedal is not pressed at all. This will cause the shift points to occur exactly…
You can't shift gears on an automatic transmission because, as it is called, it's automatic! You don't need to shift, it does it for you. == == Maybe the question should be "Why is my automatic transmission not shifting through gears for me as it should?" Could it be a fairly simlpe fix or am I losing my transmission? Yeah Dopey!
