At Universal Motors our fully equipped workshop in Thomastown, provides gearbox repairs and replacement for all makes and models. All our car repairs come with a minimum 12 month/20000km warranty.

Like automatic transmissions, gearboxes need to be lubricated with oil which in turn needs to be changed at regular intervals to maintain function of the gearbox.

Common symptoms of gearbox problems include:

  • Hard to select gears
  • Crunching noise when changing gears
  • Stuck in gear
  • Unable to select any or all gears

Manual transmissions and clutches are used to transmit energy from one mechanical device to another. The gearbox varies the speed of motion of the vehicle through increasing or decreasing torque through the utilisation of different size gears. This in turn changes the spped at the wheels through reducing or increasing the number of times the driveshafts turn in relation to engine speed.
