A gearbox increases the speed your vehicle's wheels rotation in relationship to your engines speed (RPM), it then provides the drive to your tyres and propels you along. However, as with all things mechanical, they go wrong from time to time. You may experience unusual noises, or maybe it becomes difficult to select a gear. Gearboxs will often leak oil from their oil seals, which can lead to other problems, often costly.

There's not much to do to look after your gearbox, apart from changing the oil, which should be done at the recommended service interval. Car and van gearboxes are quite reliable if not abused, and it’s been our experience that total failure is rare. But, if you are unlucky enough to have a gearbox problem in your vehicle it's often preceded by warning symptoms. That’s the time to give us a call, so we can check it out for you.
