Just give the car a little gas and slowly release the clutch. Once your moving it pretty easy just push the clutch in pull the stick back to second and slowly release the clutch. Just remember if your stopped on a hill and you take your foot off the brake and have the clutch pushed in you will roll backwards until you give it gas so your going to need to give it a bit more gas and release the clutch a little faster.

The one tip that I can give you is to learn how to roll out of first gear without the use of gas . This will get you comfortable with you clutch and learn how to drive manual much faster. Just find you a location with no traffic , put her in first gear , then slowly start letting off the clutch until you start moving. Hope this helps you

Use the e-brake to your advantage until you get used to hills.

Lol you will love learning how. I wet from 99v6 auto to 99 Cora 5 speed with some mods and the power was awesome. It took me two years to learn how To drive it good but it was awesome. Toward the end is when I started learning how easy it is to squeal tires at red lights which was fun for the most part

You will stall it plenty of times, just accept it now so you don't feel as embarrassed when it actually does happen.

Start by just letting go of the clutch VERY slowly so you can get a feel for where it grabs, then move onto giving it some gas at the same time, then onto giving it a little more gas while letting it out a little faster.

When I'm driving, I rarely look at my speed. I look at my tachometer more than my speedometer. And if you have a loud exhaust you can do everything by ear because you will learn what sound is what rpm.

Yeah a 95 manual will be slower than a 03 auto.
