When you put your car in first gear then shift to second gear on a manual transmission, sometimes you can hear some noise. Transmission of gearshift should be activated easily, should be driven without any effort and noise-free in shifting gears without difficulty. If you hear noise when the car is put in gear, this could be one of several problems depending on the type of noise it gives and when did you hear it exactly. It might not even be related to transmission.
How the manual transmission system works:
When you put your car in transmission gear like for example in first gear, it means you put a strain on the engine and transmission. When you press on the gas, the load changes. For this reason, the engine and transmission have thrust. This thrust mount supports and secures the engine and transmission, ensuring that the loading of the thrust will not produce loud sounds, horns, bangs and other abnormal sounds.
In addition, a number of things might occur when you put your gear (this will vary dramatically depending on whether you drive a car with manual transmission of what gear). For example, with a manual gear transmission, you have to press the clutch pedal, then the pedal moves the clutch and allows you to shift gears. If the clutch wears, you might hear a noise or a shrill.
In automatic transmission, everything works a little differently. There are clutch plates throughout the bottom layer of the pedal, as well as a rubber band connecting each tooth. If the clutch plate or bracelet wears, you may hear noise when the transmission changes.
Common reasons for this noise:
Low Transmission Fluid
The most common reason for problems related to noisy transmission is low fluid. Your transmission requires the right amount of fluid to operate and to protect internal components from wear, heat and friction.
Another common cause of hearing noise when shifting the gears of your car is the failure of the motorbike mounting. Different brands and models use different types of stands. Some are nothing more than rubber blocks, while others are hydraulic units. In both instances, a failed stand (or missing motorcycle seat bolt) will produce a very noisy sound when you put your car in gear.
Rear wheel drive connection failed
If you have a rear wheel drive vehicle, the problem may not be with the engine or transmission, but with the drive shaft. A bad rear wheel drive connection can cause very noisy sounds when placing the car in gear. Playing on the connection allows the shaft to flex improperly, causing sound and vibration.
If you have a manual transmission, maybe the clutch is worn out. This will make a screaming / grinding sound when trying to insert the car.
Pilot Bearing has a problem
This problem only relates to manual transmission, and only when using the clutch (pressing the clutch pedal inward).
Failed Pads Throws air out
If you hear the sound of a manual transmission when removing the clutch, it can be a failed bearing pad.
What is expected from this clutch treatment?
A professional mechanic can check the noise your car makes when putting it in gear. The mechanic will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of repairs required.
How was it done?
The mechanic must turn the car's crank, and then install it to verify and double the noise. Based on this test, the mechanic will have a diagnosis, or need to inspect other vehicle components to verify their condition and operation. The actual steps taken will depend on the type of noise you hear.
How important is this noise treatment?
Unusual noise when placing your car must always be the reason for the alarm. This might be something as simple as a failed rear wheel drive connection, but it might be a sign of transmission failure, or failure to install a motor, both of which are serious problems. One of our professional mechanics can diagnose and fix your problem.
