Understanding the Gearbox: The Power Behind the Shift:

Transmission Dynamics:

The gearbox, or transmission, is the mechanical powerhouse responsible for controlling the power generated by the engine. It enables your vehicle to shift smoothly between gears, adjusting the speed and torque to meet varying driving conditions.

Manual vs. Automatic:

Whether manual or automatic, the gearbox adapts to the driver’s preferences. Manual gearboxes involve driver-controlled gear changes, while automatic transmissions shift seamlessly without driver intervention. Each type requires specific attention during repairs and services.

Common Gearbox Issues: Unraveling the Challenges:

Fluid Leaks:

Gearbox fluid is crucial for lubrication and cooling. Leaks can lead to insufficient lubrication, causing friction and potential damage. Our experienced team conducts thorough inspections to identify and address fluid leaks promptly.

Worn Clutch:

Manual transmissions often involve a clutch system that can wear over time. Symptoms include slipping gears or difficulty engaging. Our professional team specializes in clutch replacements and adjustments.
