Shaking Transmission

Transmission Shaking Transmission shaking can be a sign that your automatic and manual transmission may be experiencing problems. Your car shouldn’t shake or jerk, and you shouldn’t hear grinding.

Burning Smell

Burning Smell If you get a whiff of burning transmission fluid such as burning smell, be advised it is definitely not the sweet smell of success. That’s because it may indicate your transmission is overheating. Transmission fluid keeps the transmission’s many moving parts properly lubricated. Also, it prevents the unit from burning itself up, by providing much-needed cooling. […]

Transmission Noises

Transmission Noises Another problem commonly found in transmissions is the transmission noises they make whether in neutral or when shifting while driving. In most cases, the issue is sourced from a lack of lubricant between the moving parts. While in other cases, the noise is a clear indication it’s time for an inspection or repair. […]

Besides, it is a type of motor vehicle transmission that can automatically change gear ratios as the vehicle moves. It also frees the driver from having to shift gears manually. Because like other transmission systems on vehicles, it allows an internal combustion engine, best suited to run at […]

Manual Transmission

Manual Transmission A manual transmission, also known as a manual gearbox, stick shift, n-speed manual (where n is its number of forward gear ratios), standard, MT, or in colloquial U.S. English, a stick (for vehicles with hand-lever shifters), is a type of transmission used in motor vehicle applications. It uses a driver-operated clutch engaged and disengaged by a foot pedal (automobile) or hand lever (motorcycle), for regulating torque transfer from the engine to the transmission; and a gear […]
