*Individual stats based upon average component numbers as used in a typical salon car with manual transmission.

[1]. For a compact or mid-size car with a typical 4-cylinder engine, you may need approximately 4 to 6 litres (about 1 to 1.5 gallons) of antifreeze / coolant when mixed with an equal amount of water.

[2]. Manual transmissions typically require less oil than automatic transmissions. In many cases, manual transmissions have a total fluid capacity of around 1.5 to 2.5 litres (approximately 1.6 to 2.6 quarts). However, this can vary significantly from one vehicle to another.

[3]. Manual transmissions typically have 4 to 6 gears, but some sports cars or high-performance vehicles may have 7 or more gears. The number of gears can vary based on the manufacturer and the specific model of the car.

[4]. In a 5-speed manual transmission, you will typically have 4 to 5 synchronizer rings, one for each forward gear.

[5]. A rough estimate is that a modern passenger car can have anywhere from 1 to 2 miles (1.6 to 3.2 kilometres) of wiring. This includes wiring for various electrical systems such as the engine, transmission, lighting, entertainment, climate control, sensors, and more.

[6]. Midsize cars have an average weight range of 3,000 to 4,000 pounds (approximately 1,361 to 1,814 kilograms or 1.814 Tons).
