Manual Transmission Repair and Service

Manual Transmission Repair and Service

Your transmission is an important component of your vehicle. It takes the torque the engine produces and transfers it to the wheels. With a manual transmission, there are a few different maintenance services and repairs to consider that an automatic wouldn’t have.

Manual Transmission Clutch Repairs

One major difference with manual transmissions is the addition of a clutch that is directly connected to the transmission. This clutch is likely to break a few times before the transmission itself dies. It is important to be proactive and replace the clutch if it breaks, or starts to show the following signs of breaking:

  • Clutch is hard to press
  • Clutch pedal is soft to press
  • Noises come from the gear
  • It becomes difficult to shift the gears
  • Transmission pops out of gear

If any of these symptoms become apparent in your vehicle, it is important to find a Maryland manual transmission mechanic who can repair the clutch or transmission issues.

Common Manual Transmission Issues

There are other issues which occur in manual transmission vehicles. These problems are directly related to the transmission itself, and can be prevented through regular Maryland vehicle maintenance and inspections. These problems include:

  • Transmission is not aligned with the engine
  • Transmission fluid needs to be replaced

Servicing a Manual Transmissions

Regular servicing will help to ensure your manual vehicle is running in top shape. This includes regular oil checks, inspections, and, most importantly, flushing your transmission fluid. You should refer to your owners manual to find how often you should perform the different maintenance checks. As a general rule of thumb, you should change your oil every 3,000 miles and your transmission fluid every 30,000 miles.
