Can't stall?

So first things first im totally new to driving a manual... Total of like 30 minutes driving im pretty good if i do say so.

My E-break is currently not working so to stop i have to stall and stay in gear. I backed down my drive way and sat on the break but could not stall i went into first could not stall... Drove up the drive way could not stall... I drove around for a bit and went back and it stalled fine.

So what do i do if this happens to me again?

Why are you stalling it? Just put it into neutral, keep your foot on the break and turn the key off, then put it back into gear so it doesn't move...aaaannnnddd you might wanna invest in an ebreak pretty soon! Lol

Typically, stalling is a bad thing. Maybe you mean something else?

There's is no good reason to purposely stall a vehicle unless your goal is to brake something. Your brother has no clue on how to use a vehicle, do not listen to him about anything to do with them....... the key shuts off a car for a reason do that and don't abuse the Jeep.

You need to change your blinker fluid and adjust your flux capacitor. The blinker fluid needs to be DOT 92 and the flux capacitor needs to be replenished with Libyan sourced Uranium (nothing else will do). The flux capacitor should be flashing at a rate of 72 Hz.

If your gonna replace all those, might as well do the exhaust bearings while the flux is out...

I prefer synthetic blinker fluid. lets me go longer between changes.

dont forget to change the air in your tires every 3000 miles.

in all seriousness for the OP, many people (including myself) park a stick shift without using the e-brake and simply shut the car off and keep it in first gear. replacing your e-brake ASAP would be agood idea, but parking it like people have said to do is fine. but yeah you shouldn't stall your car to shut it off, simply turn it of while holding in the clutch and brake. and then have it in first gear and let off both pedals and your good to get out.

Stalling on purpose is a horrible idea... Like the others said above, when you're parking the Jeep, simply stop, depress the clutch pedal, put it into neutral keeping your foot on the brakes.. Turn off the ignition, and then put the Jeep into gear. Absolutely zero reason to purposely stall a vehicle.

If you HAVE to stall it to shut it off, you have something wrong with the jeep, and you'll need to get that thing checked out ASAP.

First or reverse, either one. You'll find that manufacturers recommend reverse.

I havent adjusted the cables for my 8.8 ebrake even though I put in brand new ebrakes when I swapped it it. If mine doesnt hold in 1st or reverse I just shift into 4WD Low while it is off and in gear. That holds it every time.
