Manual transmission enthusiasts appreciate the control and performance their car delivers. However, as components wear out or become damaged, the benefits of a manual transmission diminish, potentially leaving your car undriveable.

If you are having trouble keeping your car in gear, noticing unusual noises or experiencing poor performance in certain gears, it might be time to consider a manual transmission service or rebuild.


What is a manual transmission rebuild?

A manual transmission rebuild involves disassembling the gearbox, inspecting and replacing worn or broken components such as gears, bearings, seals, and the input shaft. The transmission is then carefully reassembled, ensuring that all parts are correctly aligned and functioning optimally. This process not only restores performance but also extends the lifespan of your car’s manual transmission.

How do I know if my manual transmission needs a rebuild?

Common signs that your manual transmission may require a rebuild include difficulty shifting gears, grinding or whining noises, leaking transmission fluid, a slipping clutch, and poor car performance. If you notice any of these issues, it’s essential to have your car inspected by a professional service like Auto Trans R Us to determine the best course of action.
