Ok, so i was teaching my cousin how to drive stick (please don't ask why I agreed I was forced into it by my dad and my uncle). He was bad....really bad and after he stalled once or twice the engine fail safe mode came on so i restarted the car and i drove it home nothing came up about the engine (I did a systems check) and the car handled and drove fine. So my question is should I be worried and is there anything I can do without going to the dealer and spending tons of money.

You could disconnect the battery for about 30 minutes and it will clear the computer.

If your cousin is younger than you, it will be a trying experience teaching him how to drive a "stick". It will also be an experience he will rememember for the rest of his life how you took the time to teach him. The car will not break.

Yeah I agree. A couple stalls here and there is not gunna break the engine.

I remember when I wanted to learn. the only guy i knew who had stick at the time drove a BMW. I asked him one time if he could teach me and he flat out said no(and laughed), but was serious. Kinda saw him as a dic* from then on. I guess it was the was he said no that P'd me off. Typical beamer owner.

Met a girl a little bit down the road and taught me in her GT....a time I'll never forget.
