Fiat Cinquecento Gearboxes

When you take apart and look inside a gearbox, you will find a huge assortment of parts in a fairly small space. Among other things, you see:

In an Automatic Gearbox:-

An ingenious planetary gear set
A set of bands to lock parts of a gear set
A set of three wet-plates clutches to lock other parts of the gear set
An incredibly odd hydraulic system that controls the clutches and bands
A large gear pump to move gearbox fluid around
Manual gearboxes you will find a lay shaft, collar and folks.

Manumatic gearboxes Manumatic is a portmanteau word, combining the words manual and automatic, that applies to a class of automotive gearboxes. Manumatic most often refers to an automatic transmission; with some elements of manual transmission control (e.g. a gear can be manually selected instead of having the computer control all shifts). This type of transmission was introduced in the beginning of the 21st century. Different car manufacturers have been using a variety of labels for their manumatic transmissions, such as ‘tiptronic’, ‘Geartronic’, ‘Touchshift’, ‘Sporttronic’, and others.

Fiat Cinquecento Manual Gearbox

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 Fiat Cinquecento 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.
