Most van manual transmissions allow the driver to select any forward gear ratio (gear) at any time, but some only allow the driver to select the next-higher or next-lower gear. This type of transmission is sometimes called a sequential manual transmission. Manual transmissions are characterized by gear ratios that are selectable by locking selected gear pairs to the output shaft inside the transmission.

Manual Synopsis

A manual transmission, also known as a manual gearbox or standard transmission (informally, a manual or standard, aka straight shift stick, or straight drive) is a type of transmission used in motor vehicle applications. It generally uses a driver-operated clutch, typically operated by a foot pedal for regulating torque transfer from the internal combustion engine to the transmission, and a gear stick by hand in a van.

Manual
GM Astro/Safari vans were produced with a 4-speed manual or a 5-speed manual transmission. Manual transmissions feature a driver-operated clutch and a movable gear stick which are commonly swapped with automatics in custom applications and transmission conversions.
