If you are learning to operate a manual transmission, there are some techniques you need to familiarize yourself with. Upshifting is important for accelerating, but downshifting is equally important for slowing down and preventing your vehicle from stalling. Whenever you let off the gas or apply the brake but do not bring your vehicle to a complete stop, you will need to downshift to match the engine’s RPM and speed.
