A gasonline engine that sounds like a diesal engine is probably pinging and knocking. That's not a good thing.

I never put my car into 1st gear when aproaching a stop. I usually downshift to 2nd gear and press in my clutch when I'm almost at a complete stop (~5-10km/h). Only when I'm at a complete stop do I put it into first.
