Gears Slipping Inside a Transmission

If gears slipping inside the transmission it is cause by several reasons and it will depend on what particular gear the transmission slip out, if the transmission slips out particularly on high gear this is usually caused by a faulty shift linkage or it can be caused by input shaft movement that is excessive. 

Shift linkage has something to do with the transmission not to stay out of gear when the shift linkage is bad, it will make the transmission slip out of gear especially in high gear, and likewise, a minimum input shaft movement is necessary for the transmissions to avoid the transmission stay out of gear. When the input shaft excessively move it can cause the transmission to jumps out of gear.

However when the transmission slips out of gear while driving, this is usually the case of an out of adjustment shift linkage, an out of adjustment shift linkage can cause the transmission to slip out of first gear or the second gear, however there are also other reasons if the transmission slips out of second gear that is when the shifter fork is loose, this will likely cause the transmission to jump out of second gear.

There are other causes of this kind of transmission problems but can only be determined by looking at the actual transmission itself. The above causes are the most likely possible reasons why the transmission is slipping out of gear however in determining the exact cause of the problem the transmission must be opened up and checked by a professional, without the actual transmission it is very hard to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem but instead the most likely possibilities can be determined based on the experience.

When your car encounters a transmission slipping out of gear bring the car immediately to the shop that specialized in working with transmission problems. Usually, adjustments of shift linkage can fix the problem, however, if the adjustment won't work then a more expensive work must be done and it will cost you a lot.
