Gearbox Issues – What Could be Wrong?
The gearbox is used to control gears when driving a manual car. These are some of the most common signs that something might not be working within the gearbox:
- Slipping. If you feel like the car is changing between gears, it could be slipping.
- Delayed engagement or difficulty shifting gear. You might notice that the car doesn’t respond as you would expect it to.
- Fluid leak. Look out for any fluid underneath your car. Fluid from the gearbox will be red or dark brown.
If you notice any of these issues, take your car to be checked immediately. Only a professional mechanic can tell you what is wrong and be completely accurate. Once you have found out the problems, ask about the process of fixing it and get a full quotation. It might be that you only need a repair if the issue is with something like gearbox fluid. However, a full gearbox replacement will cost more.
