A Bronco Gearbox

For the Bronco through its life span from 1966 through 1996, with five distinct generations had either a five-speed manual gearbox which was standard, and a four-speed automatic was optional. Later on a six-speed manual gearbox was introduced.

A Bronco manual gearbox

A manual gearbox, also known as a manual gearbox or standard gearbox (informally, a “manual”, “stick shift”, “straight shift”, or “straight drive”) is a type of gearbox used in motor vehicle applications. It generally uses a driver-operated clutch, typically operated by a pedal or lever, for regulating torque transfer from the internal combustion engine to the gearbox, 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 are characterized by gear ratios that are selectable by locking selected gear pairs to the output shaft inside the gearbox.

A Bronco automatic gearbox

An automatic gearbox (often informally shortened to auto, and abbreviated to AT) is a motor vehicle gearbox that can automatically change gear ratios as the vehicle moves, freeing the driver from having to shift gears manually. Similar but larger devices are also used for heavy-duty commercial and industrial vehicles and equipment.

Most automatic gearboxes have a defined set of gear ranges, often with a parking pawl feature that locks the output shaft of the gearbox. Continuously variable gearboxes (CVTs), which are very different to conventional automatic gearboxes, can change their ‘ratios’ over a wider ‘stepless’ range, rather than between a set of fixed gear ratios. CVTs have been used for decades in two-wheeled scooters, but have only seen use in a few automobile models.

Conventionally, in order to select the gearbox operating ‘mode’, the driver moves a selection lever located either on the steering column or on the floor next to him/her. In order to select modes, or to manually select specific gear ratios, the driver must push a button in (called the shift lock button) or pull the handle (only on column mounted shifters) out. Some vehicles position selector buttons for each mode on the cockpit instead, freeing up space on the central console. Vehicles conforming to Government standards must have the modes ordered P-R-N-D-L (left to right, top to bottom, or clockwise). Prior to this, quadrant-selected automatic gearboxes often utilized a P-N-D-L-R layout, or similar.

A Bronco gearbox reliability

The modern gearbox is by far, the most complicated mechanical component in today’s automobile. Newer gearboxes contain mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, electrical systems and computer controls, all working together in perfect harmony which goes virtually unnoticed until there is a problem.

On a rear wheel drive car, power flow on a rear wheel drive the gearbox is usually mounted to the back of the engine and is located under the hump in the centre of the floorboard alongside the gas pedal position. A drive shaft connects the rear of the gearbox to the final drive which is located in the rear axle and is used to send power to the rear wheels. Power flow on this system is simple and straight forward going from the engine, through the torque converter, then through the gearbox and drive shaft until it reaches the final drive where it is split and sent to the two rear wheels.

A Bronco gearbox is reliable, but still as in all gearboxes it’s the most-easiest-to-break and very-expensive-to-fix part of the vehicle. If heavily abused, the Bronco gearbox can be easily destroyed within just half an hour. Any gearbox is very sensitive to the gearbox fluid quality and condition. Improper fluid type can damage the gearbox. When buying a used car, a gearbox is one of the most important parts to check.

When buying a used car, the gearbox is one of the most important parts to check. We strongly recommend having a used car inspected by a mechanic before buying it, it will well worth it. When buying a used car first checks the used car history records; it may save you some time and money. If the used car history report shows that the car you want to buy was used as a rental vehicle or has been involved in an accident, there is no point to even look at it. Ask the previous owner or salesperson if any repair has been done to the Bronco gearbox. If the gearbox is already rebuilt, try to avoid buying such a car. It’s not like all rebuilt Bronco gearbox will have problems – some of them work even better than before. The problem is that not all gearbox shops can do equally the same high-quality job. And since there is no way to verify if it was rebuilt properly or not, it’s better not to take chances. Another thing to be concern about, ask if the car you are looking for was used for towing a trailer. Gearboxes wear out quicker in many cars that were used for towing a trailer.

If your car gearbox is worn out or won’t go smoothly then you may need to replace it, call telephone support line on 0905 232 0099 for your gearbox part or check it out on our simple quick search

Method for cleaning a Bronco gearbox

A method of cleaning the gearbox 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 gearbox cleaner is charged into the gearbox and the vehicle is driven for a predetermined distance. The gears are changed at preselected times while driving so that all gears of the gearbox are used equally. The engine is then shut down and gearbox fluid is purged from the gearbox fluid pan by submerging a trailing end of a first hose into the gearbox 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 gearbox fluid to flow into a gearbox 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 gearbox fluid pan and a gearbox 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 gearbox 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. Gearbox fluid is vacuumed from the gearbox cooling line and the gearbox cooling line is reattached so that all gearbox fluid is removed from the gearbox cooling lines and most of the gearbox fluid is removed from the torque converter.
