Basic Troubles of Transmission Mechanism

The transmission of the engine torque to the driving wheels of the automobile must be smooth. There should be no vibration in the operation of transmission mechanism within the range of travelling speeds.

The indications of malfunctions in the transmission mechanism components are as follows: 1) incomplete disengagement of the clutch; 2) difficult engagement or self-demeshing of gears; 3) run out and vibration of the cardan-drive shaft.

What to do in these cases:

1) Check the free travel of the clutch pedal and adjust it.

2) Check the oil level in the gearbox housing and wash breather channel.

3) Check to see that all the fastening bolts are securely tightened and that the trunnion crosses fit properly the bearings, and the bearings, in turn, the universal-joint forks.
