Your car's gearbox is a complex mechanical system that transmits the power from the engine firstly to the drive shafts and then to the wheels. A manual gearbox experiences more wear and tear over time than most other parts of your car, due to the heat and friction produced by its many moving parts and components.
And of course it is the gearbox that allows you to accelerate from stationary to speed as you move up through the gears - not to mention allowing you to go backwards into that tight parking spot!
Although gearboxes are designed to carry the enormous loads caused by transmitting the engine's power, some wear is inevitable. Mostly, the gearbox will still work with some wear, but occasionally problems can occur.
From time to time, you should have the gearbox oil checked, and changed if necessary. We can help you find a garage near you to do this.
If your gearbox is not looked after, major issues are bound to arise. You should always get any worrying symptoms checked out by a professional as soon they develop.
Founded in 1944 as a maker of handmade steel tubing and bicycle parts, the company known today as Kia opened its first automotive assembly line in 1973 and built a small range of cars known as Brisa in 1981. After a bit of a lull, they really started pumping out the vehicles again in 1986, and partnered up with Ford.
Kia Motors Corporation is headquartered in Seoul, and is South Korea's second-largest auto manufacturer, just beyond Hyundai. According to Kia themselves, the name roughly translates to “rising out of Asia”. Nowadays they offer up a very impressive seven-year warranty on all their cars to please many drivers, and they are consistently rated highly across the board.
The style of older Kias on the road used to be quite questionable, but thanks to a modern makeover, cars from this Korean brand now sport stylish, trendy designs. The current range includes a wide spectrum of vehicles, from the compact Venga city car to the Sorento SUV. The Pro Ceed hot hatch is great for drivers looking for a better, stronger performance and Kia even offers the Soul EV, a fully electric vehicle, for those who after after eco-friendliness and cheap running costs.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Newcastle upon Tyne or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
