Here are a few red flags that should encourage you to pursue a manual gear box repair in Sydney:
- Shifting becomes more difficult: If you are having trouble getting your vehicle to shift gears—as in, it is physically difficult to manipulate the gear box—then bring it in for a repair. The problem could be something simple, like low clutch fluid, or it could be a sign that the transmission transaxle assembly has gone bad. Either way, it’s good to get a professional opinion.
- The car won’t stay in gear: A manual transmission clutch receives a lot of abuse over its lifetime, often because of unskilled drivers. Someone who doesn’t know how to shift the transmission properly can rapidly burn and damage the clutch. The better you are at driving a stick shift car, the longer your clutch will last. If your transmission starts slipping out of gear, though, that might be a sign that the clutch is on its last legs.
- The vehicle is making strange noises: The noise to watch for with a damage manual transmission is a loud clanging when the engine is idling. This sound could be a few different things, among them the rattling and banging of loose gears and clutch parts. In any case, a checkup is worth your time.
- Transmission fluid is leaking: Any fluid leak is worth a closer look. Transmission fluid is red, so look for it on the concrete or pavement underneath where you park your car.
