Warning Signs of a Manual Transmission Repair
Your manual transmission is typically very dependable. Manual transmissions do require to be serviced at intervals. Reference your owners manual for maintenance recommendations.
Modern cars are made with manual transmissions. Nothing is full proof. As sophisticated as these modern transmissions can be, errors can make those gearshifts considerably less smooth.
When a manual transmission fails, you might notice some strange sounds or vibrations when something goes awry with your vehicle’s transmission. In other situations, your transmission might shift gears in unpredictable ways, resulting in uneven speeds and inconsistencies while driving.
Your car may sound like it’s trying to go 100 miles per hour when it’s only traveling at 50, this is known as a clutch slipping in most cases. Additionally, there might be a few seconds delay when you shift each gear. You may also noise a grind during the transition of a shift.
This is typically known as failed synchronizer. Synchronizers are a part inside your manual transmission. Synchronizers are what allows a gear selection to made smoothly. Worn or damaged synchronizers can lead to further damage if the synchronizers are pushed to far.
While some of these problems might seem negligible in the moment, ignoring such issues could make the situation worse, decreasing the life of your manual transmission over time and increasing the costs to repair.

How Manual Transmissions Work
A manual transmissions internal rotating assemblies have many moving parts. Gears, bearings and synchronizers make up just a portion of the pieces inside a manual transmission. A manual transmissions gears are machined in a way that allows each gears tooth surface to mate very closely to each other.
Each manual transmissions gears, has a certain amount of teeth. The combined amount of teeth on a mating set of gears determines the manual transmissions gears ratio. When shifting a manual transmission, it takes multiple gears inside the manual transmission to get the end result.
Bearings support gears and shafts and allow the manual transmissions gears and shafts to turn smoothly. Synchronizers in a manual transmission are designed to stop the gears from spinning. A manual transmissions synchronizers also align the slider to a gear.
When the gears stop spinning inside the manual transmission, the slider, which is moved when you shift by the shift fork inside the manual transmission, locks additional teeth on the gears side (whatever gear your shifting into). The manual transmissions gears assemble is now locked into the gears side teeth and you have completed your shift.
When synchronizers fail, you may experience grinding or noises and a sensation in your manual transmissions shifter handle during the transmissions shift transition to the next gears selection.

An excellent job!
I was in the unfortunate circumstance of needing a transmission rebuild for my car. A-Affordable Transmissions was able to complete the job in half the time and half the price that other shops had quoted me. Dave was clear & straightforward in describing the different rebuild options, and was very friendly to work with. He even met with me after hours to return my vehicle since it was finished a little later than expected. Now my Jeep is running great again and I highly recommend A-Affordable Transmissions! Thanks for an excellent job!
Made the right choice by going there
Recently took my vehicle in after transmission gave out. It was a pleasure to get such friendly and service. I had the feeling right away that I had made the right choice by going there. They repaired the transmission sooner than I was expecting and at a price less than I was expecting to pay. Definitely recommend a well satisfied customer.
Good attitude and friendliness
I’ve been around many many automobile “fix-it” shops in my life-time. But never have I had such a good feeling walking into and walking out of an automobile shop as was the case with A-Affordabe Transmissions Center on 84th and Huron in Thornton. I credit all the workers for their friendliness and expertise in their jobs; moreover, I honor the center’s manager Dave, whom I have yet to see in any manner other than friendly, personable and very knowledgeable in his work. I greatly admire honesty and integrity and Dave personifies these virtues to the fullest. I first took my car to their shop a year ago. I took it back recently and expected a huge bill; however, Dave checked it out and fixed the problem at no charge. He also took a step further and personally brought it to my house when completed. I highly recommend this Transmission site for more than just needed repairs done right and timely; but with the good attitude and friendliness of the workers. Hence, I rate A-Affordable with five stars.
