Total Vehicle Solutions UK specialises in reconditioned gearboxes and offers a complete nationwide service for private motorists, main dealerships, independent garages, fleet companies and members of the trade. Based in Manchester, we operate on a 24/7 basis and collect vehicles across the country for gearbox rebuilding or remanufacture. Our company works on all makes and models, from small passenger cars to large commercial vehicles.
In simple terms, gearboxes fall into two different categories; manual and automatic. Both do exactly the same thing but they perform in two completely different ways.
Different gears transfer engine drive from shaft to shaft. The gearbox achieves different ratios and this is what helps a vehicle to reach faster speeds in a high gear or to climb a hill in a low gear. A manual gearbox relies on the driver changing these ratios through the shift stick whereas an automatic model, as one would expect, changes these ratios automatically.
A few models even have semi-automatic gearboxes which combine both functions.
As with all moving systems in an engine, the gearbox has an expected working lifecycle and lasts longer if a car or commercial vehicle undergoes regular servicing and maintenance. When parts and components wear or damage, it isn’t simply a case of replacing them. We have to strip down the gearbox completely to clean it and inspect the reasons for failure.
Reconditioned gearboxes are not the same as second-hand replacements. They are a finished rebuilds completed by engineers and technicians at our workshop in Manchester. Our services are not the same as those provided by local scrap yards and breakers yards.
Total Vehicle Solutions UK also specialises in reconditioned engines.
Imagine a car or commercial vehicle without a gearbox. For a car to travel at a top speed of 80mph, it would need a predetermined ratio similar to the high end of third gear. Now imagine trying to drive the same vehicle from a stationary position with the shift stick already in third gear. This would make moving away an extremely difficult proposition.
There would be hardly any noticeable acceleration and the engine would rev to capacity at 80mph. The engine wouldn’t last long without having a gearbox fitted.
