The main difference between an automatic and manual transmission system is addition of the clutch pedal and gear shift. In an automatic transmission system, the on-board computer determines when to shift. While it takes practice to learn how to drive a “stick-shift” automobile, they tend to be more cost effective when it comes to transmission repairs and maintenance.
The most common symptoms of a faulty manual transmission include: unusual noises, difficulty shifting and difficulty staying in gear. When an inspection is performed, the Jamestown Automotive specialists are able to determine the parts needed to be replaced and clean/reuse the parts that don’t need to be replaced. The ability to approach a repair in this way allows for much more cost efficient repairs and longer transmission life.
