February 19, 2022 Today, I drove to my friend. I found that I almost forgot how to drive a manual car. It's an old second-hand blue Peugeot. I just used it to practice last year. After driving an automatic transmission car for 10 days, I found the manual car was so complex. The clutch was hard to push, the steering wheel was very heavy. Sometimes I forgot to push the clutch when the car needed to stop. That made the car engine shut down several times. Fortunately, I have come back safely.

February 19, 2022 Today, I drove to see my friend. I realized that I almost had forgotten how to drive a stick shift. It's an old second-hand blue Peugeot. I just used it to practice last year. After driving an automatic for 10 days, I found using a stick shift was very difficult. The clutch was hard to push in, and the steering wheel was very heavy. Sometimes I forgot to push in the clutch when stopping, which caused the car's engine to stall several times. Fortunately, I arrived home safely.
In the United States, we would say "stick shift." You push IN the clutch, and then if you don't release correctly, then the car will STALL (in other words, turn off). I don't know what other English-speaking countries would say. Let me know if you have any questions.

After driving an automatic transmission car for 10 days, I found that the manual car was so complex. The clutch was hard to push, and the steering wheel was very heavy. Sometimes I forgot to push the clutch down when the car needed to stop. That made the car engine shut down several times. Fortunately, I returned safely.
Great! :)

February 19, 2022 Today, I drove to my friend's place. I found that I almost forgot how to drive a manual car. It's an old second-hand blue Peugeot. I used it to practice just last year. After driving an automatic transmission car for 10 days, I found that driving a manual car was very complex. The clutch was hard to push, and the steering wheel was very heavy. Sometimes I forgot to push the clutch when the car needed to stop. That made the car stall several times. Fortunately, I returned safely.
Very good! The only major correction is that you don't drive to a person. You drive to a place. So I changed "to my friend" to "to my friend's place." You could even just say "I drove to my friend's", which is something people say for short. Also, "made the car engine shut down" is fine, but in this situation, it's more common to say "made the car stall".
