Frequently Asked Questions About Our Gearbox Repair and Replacement Services:
When should a manual gearbox be serviced?
A manual gearbox should be serviced around every 30,000 miles or every two years, whichever comes first. However, if the gearbox is used frequently in stop-and-go traffic or in other demanding conditions, it may need to be serviced more often. A good rule of thumb is to have the gearbox checked by a qualified mechanic every year or so.
How do you know if gearbox needs replacing?
The most common symptom of a problem with the gearbox is grinding or whining noises when shifting gears. This usually indicates that the gears are not meshing properly and may be damaged. Another symptom is difficulty shifting gears, which may indicate that the gearbox is seized or jammed. In either case, it is best to have the gearbox checked by a qualified mechanic to determine the cause of the problem and whether or not it needs to be replaced.
Is it better to repair or replace a gearbox?
This depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the damage, the cost of repairs, and the availability of replacement parts.
In some instances, it may be wiser to replace the entire gearbox than to repair it. However, this is not always the case. If the damage is extensive, replacement parts may be difficult to find, or the cost of repairs may be prohibitive. In these cases, repairing the gearbox may be the best option.
When deciding whether to repair or replace a gearbox, it is important to consult with a qualified technician. They will be able to assess the damage and recommend the best course of action.
What happens to the vehicle if the gearbox is damaged?
If the gearbox is damaged, the vehicle may not be able to move, or the engine may overheat. The vehicle may also make strange noises or leak fluids. If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s important to have the vehicle checked by a mechanic as soon as possible. Gearbox damage can be expensive to repair, so it’s best to catch it early.
