Common manual transmission problems

Stick shift transmissions behave much different than their automatic counterparts. While both types of transmissions are vulnerable to problems, manual drivers may notice very specific symptoms, such as:

  • Change in clutch pedal

A properly functioning clutch pedal should feel firm and steady when depressed. If your pedal begins to feel too soft or spongy, it may be going out. Any change in how your clutch pedal reacts should be checked out by a repair specialist.

  • Slipping clutch

Your clutch should feel secure when changing gears. If you notice a high pitched squeal or revving sound, it may be slipping out of gear. Our team at Tualatin Transmission Center is very skilled when it comes to clutch repair.

  • Transmission gets stuck

If you can’t get your manual transmission to go into gear at all, your transmission is most likely to blame. Let our team check your hydraulic pressure and look for leaks in the cylinders.

  • Sounds and smells

A properly functioning manual transmission should be free of loud sounds. Grinding, squealing, knocking and clanking are not normal. Burning smells should also be reported to a technician. All of these sounds and smells may indicate a failing manual transmission.
