I suspect this will get closed soon as 'too localised' and 'shopping'... I don't know of any such courses, but I'd suggest getting in touch with a local community/sixth form college - find one that offers a car mechanics course/BTEC etc and talk to the teacher in charge of that course - they might be able to arrange something or put you in touch with ...

The fact that you stalled the car uphill and that it is acting that have most likely nothing in common. Gear knob vibration is quite normal on older cars. Also, when car is on low RPM under load, vibrations tend to be more prominent in manual transmission cars. Start with driving the car on the flat surface to see if it's accelerating as expected. If the ...

By going WOT in this instance, you'll not be causing your engine ...

The correct procedure for braking in a manual transmission car is as follows Driving as normal Apply brakes with a gradual increase in pressure Before the car stalls depress the clutch pedal Slightly release pressure before a complete stop to ensure a smooth stop When stationary for longer periods shift to neutral and release the clutch. Each car is ...
