The most common Reasons why Gearboxes fail

Like all machinery, gearboxes are subject to damage from a variety of sources, and if left unchecked, will eventually give in to them. The trouble is that it is not always easy to determine if your transmission is suffering behind a brave face of continual performance. Understanding the needs of your transmission is essential if you are to see to its upkeep. This article aims to guide laymen users of vehicles of all types towards being aware of the condition of their transmission by being able to spot problems before they occur, so that you can get it solved in good time. So whether you are a private car owner or are looking to limit the downtime of your logistics fleet, these transmission tips should help.

There is too little response

If you have been noticing a lack of response, a severe drop in transmission power or your gears slipping out of place (or refusing to go into place), it is likely a sign that your transmission is worn down to the point where performance is affected, and your transmission might be in danger of complete failure. This is often caused by a problem with the clutch in your vehicle which may need replacing, but in more severe scenarios, the trouble could lie in your transmission, which would require diff and gearbox repairs to get right again.

Noises you could do without

Your vehicle produces so many sounds that it is just about impossible to determine which one of those is indicative of a problem. A good rule to follow is that if you haven’t heard the sound before, it shouldn’t be there. A buzz, hum or whine is usually a sign that something is wrong however. If a clunking or grinding sound is made during a transmission shift, then the problem is likely in your gearbox. Having the problem diagnosed and repaired in good time will almost certainly save you on more expensive repairs later on, so see to it quickly.

Bleeding fluids

When your vehicle starts leaking fluids, it is never a good sign. Besides the radiator and engine, a leak could point to trouble with your transmission. Automatic Transmission Fluid is the lubricant that keeps your transmission working optimally, and like another mentionable and important fluid, it is bright red and has a sweet smell. If you are seeing this essential liquid dribbling from the undercarriage of your vehicle, you had best get it seen to, flushed and replaced as soon as possible.

Is something burning?

If the problem has progressed to the point where it is producing a burning smell from your car, then there is no time to waste. A burning smell means there is a problem with your transmission’s lubricant and cooling measures, meaning that the rapidly moving parts therein are causing extreme and dangerous friction which could leave to further damages on your vehicle. Get it seen to as soon as possible if you are in this situation.
