I'm sure there are others out there but here is an Auto Start/Stop disablerCurious if any of the new manual cars Ford makes comes with auto start/stop. I would guess no since you have to disengage clutch and gas when starting and may throw off the computers but want to see what you all think? Couldn’t find out if the new stangs have it or not in manual. I really really hope the Manual Bronco does NOT come with it!
Thanks, noted.Easy fix, set your climate control temp at least 2° different than outside temp, and it won't do it. At least it works in my escape.
I test drove an '18 wrangler manual with auto start stop. It takes some getting used to because their system would shut off at stop signs, so you have to move slower with the clutch to not engage with a dead engine and stall out, but if you're not trying to slam shift like you're at laguna seca you'll get the hang of it.
What about for those who are missing or had their forscan removedIt's stupid specially in warmer weather climates. On one car I can permanently turn it off. On the F150 need Forscan
Yeah but I don't keep the clutch engaged at lights. That's not even good long term for the clutch bearing. I'm happy our gas sipper manual 2020 car came without start/stop, so I can pop in neutral or let out clutch without engine stopping or having to disengaging start/stop manually. A manual start/stop vehicle I rented in Germany was losing cold air from HVAC due to start/stop.Every recent/current manual transmission vehicle with stop/start works the same way:
-If clutch is engaged, engine continues to idle
-If in neutral AND clutch disengaged AND engine oil is warm AND HVAC/accessory load is low, the engine will shut off
-Engaging the clutch will restart the engine
Unlike the implementation in vehicles with an AT, you have 100% control in a MT vehicle with stop/start. Don't want the engine to cut off at a stoplight? Just leave the clutch engaged. Want to restart the engine in anticipation of accelerating? Just disengage the clutch or put it in gear.
My MT BMW showed real-time fuel economy, and start/stop makes a noticeable impact. I've seen my average MPG drop by 1mpg or more over 20+ miles just by idling at a stop light.
