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.
Rover is a dormant British car marque which designed and built vehicles between 1904 and 2005. Originally a bicycle manufacturer, Rover was a respected brand that produced classics like the P4, P5, P6, the SD1 and 75, as well as the Rover Metro. Rover went into administration in 2005, although the brand heritage lives on in Range Rover and MG.
About the Rover Metro
These cars launched in 1990 and were extremely popular. From 1994 to 1998 they were rebranded as the Rover 100, and they’re a common used car choice across the UK. The Metro is fun to drive and well put together, although some drivers have reported problems with rust around the A frame, issues with the alternator and oil leaks.
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.
