How Does a Gearbox Work?

A gearbox, or transmission, allows a manual car to accelerate from stationary as you move up through the gears. It also allows you to reverse when needed. A gearbox is a complex mechanical system that transmits the power from your engine to the drive shafts and then to the wheels. As you probably know, manual transmissions change gears when the driver presses the clutch pedal and uses the gearstick at the same time.

A gearbox is connected to the engine through a clutch. In a manual car, this is a pedal whereas, with an automatic gearbox, the onboard computer controls the clutch. A semi-automatic car is slightly different - the on-board computer changes gear by default but the driver can also take manual control. However, there is no clutch pedal to worry about in a semi-automatic car either.

In a manual car, the clutch experiences more wear and tear over time than most other parts. This is due to the heat and friction produced by its many moving parts and components. This means some wear is inevitable even though manual gearboxes are specially designed to carry the enormous loads caused by transmitting the engine's power. Mostly, the gearbox will still work with some wear, but over time problems can occur.

 

What Are the Warning Signs I Need a Gearbox Repair?

If your car won't engage gear or slips into neutral of its own accord, it is likely that you have a transmission fault. However, there are plenty of other warning signs that indicate a gearbox problem. These include:

  • Limited acceleration
  • Your gearbox smells funny
  • Whining, clunking or humming sounds
  • Leaking oil or low oil level
  • A grinding or shaking gearstick
  • Noise when the car is idling in neutral
  • You car judders when you set off
  • The engine accelerates but the car doesn’t move

 

While a clutch replacement can resolve most manual transmission issues, sometimes a gearbox repair is the only option. As these are both vital parts of your transmission system, you must get the problem fixed as soon as possible. This will help you avoid other expensive problems.

 

Why Do I Need to Book a Gearbox Repair?

Ignoring a gearbox repair can be costly. Driving with a faulty gearbox can increase the cost of your repair bill and also risk your safety and that of your passengers and other road users.

Your gearbox plays a crucial role in keeping your car moving. It allows you to regulate your speed, helping you accelerate and decelerate safely. It also avoids placing extra strain on your engine so it can run efficiently at the right speed in the right gear.

Simply put, if you ignore your need for gearbox repairs, your car is going to struggle to perform in the way you need it to.
