Just out of curiosity I wanted to know how the ahl e zaban and Punjabi speakers referred to driving the stick or a manual automobile, in Urdu/Punjabi if at all they did? Btw any other Indo-Iranian speakers are most welcome to join in with their variants.

    The English expression seems to be most commonly used! However, below is an attempt to translate the terms:

    Automatic Transmission:
    آٹومیٹک ٹرانسمشن or خودکار نظامِ ترسیل : آٹومیٹک ٹریْنزمشن
    Manual Transmission: دستی نطامِ ترسیل: مینیوئل ٹریْنزمشن

    Your efforts are applause worthy Alfaaz Saahib but I was simply shooting for an informal alternative to "the stick". Was expecting something Dandaa related but perhaps there is none.
