    For the manual transmissions, is there a visual on the dash that informs you when to up/down shift?

    Per to the first to answer legitimately, unlimited per if there is and someone uploads a picture.

    Nope. I got used to just listening to the engine to know when to shift.

    Thats not the reason i was asking. Im looking for a manual, and there is a truck i like, however the pictures do not show the gear selector and the seller has not responded to me yet. So i was trying to see if there was something to distinguish manual/automatic on the dash. And i do know about the clutch start cancel the left of the wheel.

    If it doesn't ave a tach or light you could use a scan guage to watch the rpm's, my s10 had a light that waited to light up before I shifted for the first two weeks then I could just tell by the sounds/vibs coming thrugh the stick so I took the bulb out. If someone else drove it I'd tell then when to shift and at what oil pressure reading.
