Daewoo Lacetti Gearboxes
A manual gearbox, or manual gearbox (also informally known as a ‘manual’, ‘stick shift’, ‘straight shift’, ‘standard shift’, or sometimes ‘5-speed’) is a type of gearbox used in motor vehicle applications. It generally uses a driver-operated clutch, operated by a pedal or lever, for regulating torque transfer from the internal combustion engine to the Daewoo Lacetti Gearboxes, and a gear-shift, either operated by hand (as in a car) or by foot (as on a motorcycle). Other types of gearbox in mainstream automotive use are the automatic gearbox, semi-automatic gearbox, and the continuously variable gearbox (CVT).
Manual gearboxes often feature a driver-operated clutch and a movable gear selector. Most automobile manual gearboxes allow the driver to select any forward gear ratio (“gear”) at any time, but some, such as those commonly mounted on motorcycles and some types of racing cars, only allow the driver to select the next-higher or next-lower gear. This type of gearbox is sometimes called a sequential manual gearbox. Sequential gearboxes are commonly used in auto racing for their ability to make quick shifts.
With heavy driving or even general long term usage your gearbox will not last forever. Should you come across any type of gearbox problems then we are the people to help. Contact us for specialist help.
Problems in gearboxes
Watch for leaks or stains under the car: – If there is a persistent red oil leak that you are sure is coming from your car, you should have your shop check to see if it is coming from your gearbox or possibly from your power steering system (most power steering systems also use gearbox fluid and leaks can appear on the ground in roughly the same areas as gearbox leaks.) If all you see is a few drops on the ground, you may be able to postpone repairs as long as you check your fluid level often (but check with your technician to be sure.) If gearbox fluid levels go down below minimum levels serious gearbox damage can occur (the same advice goes for power steering leaks as well.)
Check fluid for colour and odour: – Most manufacturers require that you check gearbox fluid levels when the vehicle is running and on level ground. Pull the gearbox dipstick out and check the fluid for colour and odour. Volante gearbox fluid is transparent red oil that looks something like cherry cough syrup. If the fluid is cloudy or muddy, or it has a burned odour, you should have it checked by your technician who will most likely advise you to drain your gearbox and refill or gearbox tune-up.
Be sensitive to new noises, vibrations and shift behaviour: – A modern gearbox should shift smoothly and quietly under light acceleration. Heavier acceleration should produce firmer shifts at higher speeds. If shift points are erratic or you hear noises when shifting, you should have it checked out immediately. Whining noises coming from the floorboard are also a cause for concern. If caught early, many problems can be resolved without costly gearbox overhauls. Even if you feel that you can’t afford repairs at this time, you should at least have it checked. The technician may be able to give you some hints on what to do and not do to prolong the gearbox life until you can afford the repair.
Why some gearboxes go wrong particularly models:-
- Symptoms: – Gearbox oil pouring out of gearbox, sometimes with slipping clutch due to oil contamination.
- Often the gearbox jams and the car cannot be moved. Gears fail and there is no drive to clutch and wheels.
- Cause: – Hole punctured in the gearbox casing due to a sheared weak rivet on the differential failing. The rivets attaching the final drive gear to the differential are weak and shear off, sometimes after only 30,000 miles on early gearboxes. This is a common problem with these gearboxes.
- *Cure: – Replace weak rivets with stainless steel nuts and bolts, add reinforcing metal plate between the bolts and then fully recondition gearbox, clean your gearbox. All our reconditioned gearboxes carry a 100% warranty.
Method for cleaning your Lacetti gearbox
A method of cleaning the transmission system of a vehicle includes the steps of starting an engine of the vehicle and bringing it to normal operating temperature. A predetermined amount of a transmission cleaner is charged into the transmission and the vehicle is driven for a predetermined distance. The gears are changed at preselected times while driving so that all gears of the transmission are used equally.
The engine is then shut down and transmission fluid is purged from the transmission fluid pan by submerging a trailing end of a first hose into the transmission fluid. A leading end of the first hose is connected into fluid communication with an inlet of a remote charging tank and an outlet of the remote charging tank is connected through a switch to a source of negative pressure.
The switch is set to cause the transmission fluid to flow into a transmission fluid waste tank disposed between the outlet and the source of negative pressure. The trailing end of the first hose is then removed from the transmission fluid pan and a transmission cooling line is disconnected from a preselected port of the radiator.
The trailing end of the first hose is placed into fluid communication with the transmission cooling line at the preselected port while maintaining the leading end of the first hose in fluid communication with the inlet of the remote charging tank. Transmission fluid is vacuumed from the transmission cooling line and the transmission cooling line is reattached so that all transmission fluid is removed from the transmission cooling lines and most of the transmission fluid is removed from the torque converter.
