Gearbox Transmission Problems

Diagnosing a Manual Gearbox problem is tricky, many noises that are thought to be associated with the Gearbox could also be a Differential or Clutch problem.  That's why we will always recommend that you bring your car in to be diagnosed by our experienced Manual Gearbox specialist. Most common problems with a Manual Gearbox are crunching into gear, jumping out of gear, noisy or whining.  All of which can be fixed by our specialist.

What A Manual Gearbox /  Transmission Does

The Manual Gearbox is the second stage in the Driveline system, it provides a selection of gears for different driving conditions. It is bolted to the rear of the engine, with the Clutch sitting in between them. Most vehicles have 5-6 forward speeds and 1 reverse. A Gearbox is a simple yet complicated piece of the Driveline, to put it simply it multiplies the torque from the engine, allowing the vehicle to take off from a standing start to 110km's on the highway. 

Reconditioning Your Gearbox / Transmission

Reconditioning a Gearbox requires experience and is labour intensive. There are many specific tolerance's which make the gearbox operate correctly and modifications to make it work to its highest potential. Here at DANTRANS we only use OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts or quality aftermarket parts, for the longevity and highest working potential of your Gearbox/Transmission.
