Unlike automatic transmissions, the manual transmission is operated by the driver with a clutch. This transmits engine power to your car’s gearbox. As the car is in motion, the clutch allows the transmission to pause to shift gears. Since the entire clutch operation is dependent upon the driver to change gears, a number of motorists prefer the hands-on control of driving a manual transmission vehicle over an automatic. However, if your clutch or any other component of your car’s manual transmission is in need of repair or replacement, this can adversely affect the functioning of your entire car. It is vital to pay attention to your manual transmission and give it the regular maintenance it needs. This will ensure for it to continue running smoothly.
How do you know if your manual transmission is in need of a service appointment? The best thing you can do is follow your auto manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule in your car’s manual. By keeping to the regularly scheduled maintenance outlined in the manual, you can be sure you’re paying attention to the special needs of your manual transmission.
