Gearbox Repair FAQs

What types of gearbox repairs can you carry out?

We provide several options to rectify a faulty gearbox including reconditioning your existing gearbox, replacing with a new gearbox or replacing with a reconditioned gearbox. Our specialist gearbox technicians only fit Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) approved parts only and all gearbox repairs come with a 12-month guarantee.

Why is my gearbox leaking oil?

Oil leaks can happen for a number of reasons, from wear and tear or broken seals to overfilled oil levels. Over time, your vehicle is at risk of general wear and tear and unfortunately, that includes your gearbox and it’s related connections. Leaks should be fixed quickly, so it’s best to speak to a professional and get your car checked over at an approved garage.

What equipment do you use to repair gearboxes?

At Service4Service, we can confidently diagnose any gearbox issues using the latest computer diagnostic equipment, repairing and replacing only the things that require it, using industry-approved tools and parts.

Will I need a new gearbox if it's slipping out of gear?

It is rare that you will require a new gearbox if it is slipping out of gear. A fault like this can be caused by any number of reasons, such as low fluid levels.  Regular maintenance and inspections of your gearbox and all of the related components will save you time and money.

What causes a gearbox to break?

Even when we think we’re taking care of our cars, our gearboxes can still break down, lack of care, poor quality oil and poor driving habits are some of the most common reasons for a gearbox to break.

Should I be worried if my gearbox is making noises?

Unusual noises are one of the most obvious signs that something might be not quite right. Whether it’s whining, whirring, clunking or grinding, if you’re hearing anything out of the ordinary, it can be a sign to contact a gearbox repair specialist.

Why does my gearbox make a grinding noise?

The gearbox shafts need to be moving at the same speed in order to change gears smoothly and when this doesn’t happen, you’ll hear grinding. Modern cars tend to have a synchroniser ring to help keep both parts up to speed, but this can also go wrong from time to time, so it’s best to have things checked out.

Will I need a new gearbox if it's leaking fluid?

We would need to see your vehicle in order to correctly diagnose the issue. A leaking gearbox could be caused by a number of issues which usually only require a minor repair, so you should always visit a gearbox specialist to get it repaired quickly. Ignoring a leaking gearbox might lead to further damage.

Why does my vehicle need the gearbox removed?

Some parts of your gearbox can be repaired without removing them from your vehicle, but not all transmission parts are quite so easily accessible. If a gearbox component needs to be repaired or replaced and it cannot be accessed from underneath the vehicle, then the transmission will need to be removed from the vehicle.

Why does my vehicle need a gearbox rebuild?

Some damage to the gearbox may go beyond the repair of a single component. Over time, wear and tear can cause gears and other parts to not function properly. When this happens, a gearbox rebuild is needed to replace the faulty and damaged parts. With years of experience, our technicians can rebuild your existing gearbox using the latest technology.

Brilliants technicians and service.
My car had some problem in gear-box so that I couldn't rive it well. They found out all the problems top to bottom and fixed them all within 1 hour. Technicians are so knowledgeable and experienced in this sector, recommend this shop much.

Really pleased. I would recommend Service4Service if you need your gearbox fixing. Jordan looked after my car throughout the repair and kept me updated of progress and so much cheaper than other quotes I’d got! Great to have my car back on the road. Thank you.

Transmission Repair
My car was displaying "Service Transmission" message. After calling CS, Aaron helped me to understand the process and he booked a collection right away. He also explained that I need to expect high costs. Although the final cost was much higher than expected, the repair was carried out in a timely manner and I was informed of the progress.
After reviews on other garages and being a bit concerned how will such a big repair go, I am very satisfied with the end result.
If I ever have such a problem with my car (hopefully not for a long time) I'd choose Service4Service again so I can be sure my car is looked after properly.

Recently I used S4S and must say they have done a fantastic job on my Audi auto gearbox my car has been a fun family car for 10 yrs now and did not want to park it up for good! This was an expensive repair but worth every penny the car now feels like new and gearbox is lovely. Great work guys.
BMW 4 Series
Gearbox Fault
After buying my 4 year old BMW 4 series just 4 months ago I was very unhappy when I had a major gearbox fault, I spoke to multiple different “gearbox specialists” about this who all seemed unsure about what was going on until speaking with Julian who basically diagnosed the fault and me a estimate over the phone! From start to finish my car was with them about 2 weeks and the communication from the team was fantastic! I couldn’t be happier with the service received! It even ended up being cheeper than I was initially quoted! The car is now running better than ever, will definitely be calling when I’m due a service!! Thanks guys!

After my gearbox broke down I feared the worse. Chris looked after me through the process & kept me informed & made the whole process easy. The price was even less than we originally thought. Would highly recommend he is the man to help you.
Gearbox Repair
Booked my car in for a gearbox repair and I honestly couldn't be happier. Quick, seamless collection service. Report given over the phone a few days later along with pictures and they even dealt with my warranty company. Got my car back this evening and it is running like a dream. Thank you so much! Will definitely be back for my service when it's due!

Ford S - MAX
Powershift Repair
I thought it only right to write a few lines about how excellent and brilliant S4S are when handling your vehicle. I have Ford S Max and before Christmas starting the car in early morning, would not move forward or backwards,. Called RAC out who could not fix the problem and they advised a local garage. After about a week they decided i needed a new gearbox and the Powershift had gone and quoted £6500 without labour or VAT! So rang around and no one touches these Powershift gearboxes given the complex and labour intensive. Ford simply replace and astronomical prices! Some how i found S4S on the internet and from the first moment when i called, they were brilliant. Without even the car in front of them them they knew exactly what the problem was and a price third of the local garages. But the most incredible thing is they found the fault which local garages could not. They were so reassuring and confident they could fix it and really put me at ease. The best thing is they really speak to you like a best friend and in plain English. They will talk you through all the stages of repair right up to returning your car. I would not mention names but the two stand out staff are Chris Lindsay and Valentino who just go way over any customer service. Nothing is too much and even if you call then two or three times a day to answer a question, they are so good every time. The car.... well it runs better and smoother than even at the time i bought it. If in doubt, do not hesitate to use this firm. They will get you car back on the road.

Gearbox Repair
Great Service from start to finish. Huge thanks to Jordan and everyone at Service 4 Service. No garages in my area were keen to tackle the gear box on my Toyota campervan but after a phone call and some helpful discussion the van was picked up from home, taken to a garage that did the job and it was back outside and running great in no time at all. Really pleased with the service from start to finish.
Gearbox Repair
This review is well overdue, but nonetheless, it was imperative that I completed it. The sincere help, support and care I received from Jon Wood at Service 4 Service and Dave at A1 Premier Transmissions has been nothing but amazing!!!

I experienced a very tough time with my car finance company and original dealers at the time, and the patience direct communication and professionalism displayed by Jon was extremely commendable and I cannot thank him enough for all of his support.

Jon, you were a diamond and haven’t/won’t forget you. You’re an honest trustworthy member of your establishment and I won’t think twice to use your services again.

I had my automatic gearbox rebuilt by these guys and I experienced the best and most reliable friendly service I've had in 36 years. Absolutely wonderful, I'm sticking with service 4 service henceforth. All round 100℅ good service, keep it up guys!
Foxy Lady
Ford Kuga
Gearbox Repair
This garage is OUTSTANDING!!! I've had no end of trouble with the garage I bought my car from(not this one) the gearbox went on it (powershift kuga)and the other garage(a leading Ford dealership)was at fault through lying to me about previous problems with the gearbox. Service4service identified the problem and to this day is still helping me to get it sorted. They've allowed my vehicle to stay with them(still there) whilst also talking to my finance company on my behalf. The lengths they will go for their customers has blown my mind, Jon who has been dealing with it all the way deserves a medal. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY ABOVE ALL ELSE.

The gear box in my Nissan Juke automatic CVT stopped working. It was costly to fix (£3,340.00).

But to be honest the service was incredible. They fixed my car in a faster time period than I expect and the pick up delivery service they offer is great.

Fantastic Service. These guys are great they go the extra mile and do a super job. Cannot recommend them enough I have used them twice once for a gearbox re-build and once for service. Both times helpful courteous and really good work.
Gearbox Repair
They know what they are talking about! I have used this company a few times now for our cars and I was just as impressed this time too. Had a service and MOT last year and all was done efficiently, (such a bonus having them pick the car up and bring it back). Then, I had the gearbox fail on our other car a few weeks ago. I spoke with Chris at Service 4 Service and he was really helpful, explained the process and rough costs up front. I was kept updated throughout as it took a couple of weeks in total, but car drives good as new now. Would happily recommend them.

Gearbox Repair
I just wanted to say what a brilliant experience I had from start to finish with this company. My car's gearbox was shot and my car had been sat on damp grass for over two months due to my local garage being unable to fix it or to keep us regularly updated with their plan (I don't think they even had a plan). I wish I had contacted this company so much sooner than I did because once they took over, they took all the stress out of the situation. Liam was the guy that dealt with us from start to finish. He was very knowledgeable and reassuring and his customer service was faultless. Service 4servive collected my car from the local garage, fixed it and then delivered it back to us at home. I'm so happy to finally have our family car back after nearly three months without it. The cost wasn't cheap but the labour was intensive and I don't believe I would have gotten the job done any cheaper elsewhere. This company even allowed us to pay the final bill (after deposit) with interest free finance. I'm really pleased and just wanted to pass on my thanks to Liam and everyone else at service 4 service who played a part in delivering such great service. Thank you x
Dylan Stewart
Gearbox Repair
We recently had the usual Ford mps6 gearbox failure so decided to have the repair done by service 4 service. My mother in law was very worried as she has had bad experiences with garages before. Jon made sure her mind was at rest, keeping us posted through the whole process. He gave us detailed explanations to what had failed in the gearbox and the procedures that they would be carrying out. We explained that money is tight and they understood so as soon as we sent them the deposit, they began the work. He was very polite and helpful to which we can't thank enough. The remainder of the bill was paid and we were given a delivery date but the car arrived early. Unfortunately the car came back with oil stains on the carpet so we emailed Jon. He refunded enough of our bill to have the car fully valeted by a local mobile valeter.
Would definitely recommend and for those who worry, Ask for jon. He honestly can't help enough and he also has a little laugh with you to make you feel a little better.
Gearbox Repair
Service4Service are an excellent company to do business with. When you are lacking in knowledge yourself, they provide great guidance with no pressure and prove themselves to be a trustworthy company. I had to have some major gearbox repairs undertaken to my car, I was kept updated throughout and the car was both collected and delivered saving the hassle of getting to and from.

I especially wanted to thank Jon Wood for the excellent service, advice and guidance and for keeping regularly in touch - nothing was too much trouble for Jon and he was able to answer all of my questions thoroughly so that I could make fully informed decisions.

Service4Service also do routine maintenance as well as major mechanical repairs. I can not rate them highly enough, honesty and trust goes a very long way when dealing with a company, especially if you have never worked with them before.

I highly recommend the services of Service4Service and will be using them next time my car needs servicing or other works.

Seat Altea
Mechatronic Unit
Service4Service were unable to assist me with the recent failure of the mechatronic unit on my Seat Altea xl primarily due to the geographic location of myself in Central Scotland and their nearest repair Centre being in Newcastle. That said their Technical Services Consultant Chris Lindsay took the time to call me and offered me some very good, practical and professional advice on how I should go about seeking a specialist garage which I did and I have to say a very good thank you to Chris and Service4Service on their help and advice.
Simon Reach

Thanks guys for doing such a great job. Had my Audi gearbox repaired by Service 4 Service. I got a quote from Audi which was too high! Then rang around a few other places, and these guys were much more reasonably priced in comparison, and super helpful through the whole process. Done a professional job and now my car is driving better than ever! Highly recommend.

Had my Audi gearbox repaired with service 4 service, Liam looked after my vehicle throughout explained in detail what the likely issue was with my vehicle and the potential costs involved before it was arranged to be collected. Would recommend to a friend! Thanks Liam & Service 4 Service team!
Automatic Gearbox
Recently taken my audi in after the gearbox stopped working. After speaking to my usual service centre I called service 4 Service as they advertise as automatic gearbox specialists. My car was put on a recovery truck within two days and all timescales explained to me. The following week I received a call and the gentleman went through a very detailed report with me over the phone and answered all my questions. I got my car back yesterday and it runs like New! Thank you all so much, I will definitely recommend you to everyone and be back when my service is due.

Leroy P
Transmission Repair
My Transmission issue. I was sceptical of using service4service as I had dealt with so many garages regarding my cars transmission problem and i wasn’t getting nowhere. I called and I spoke to a guy named Lewis Collins who explained to me their procedure of collecting, diagnosing, possibly fixing and returning back to me. Having not driven my car since May I was at this point desperate so thought why not. If I’m not happy with the quote il just get my car back. So I arranged for my car to be collected. I did a lot of research on the web about them and read many reviews, good and bad as you’d expect and as mentioned my moral about the car was already low but none the less o had faith. The day the driver was supposed to collect he called me to arrange for the next day...this annoyed me slightly but at least he called and let me know so I could that slide however this now making me more apprehensive. I was wrong however, the car was diagnosed and I was explained to what was wrong, what needed doing and of course the price. Throughout the week I remained sceptical but also optimistic..after all so many people had already messed me about 7days later I have my car back and she’s moving beautifully...indeed I am one very happy guy! In all..a great service! Lewis and them guys hooked me up nicely!

**The lesser star is due to the collection as I had plans and I cancelled only to be cancelled on...but hey such is life.

Gearbox Repair
First time I used Service4service as had gearbox oil leak and had a warranty with the car, great service and kept me informed of all the problems that the warranty company threw at them as unable to supply invoices for work carried out prior to me purchasing the vehicle. Very quick repair once authorisation given and Chris and Mike were always very helpful and available to chat to or email. Would use again and recommend them to family and friends, Mark.

After a complete transmission fail on my car, i looked for a company to complete my repairs. After searching on the Net, Gearbox Repairs popped up on the screen. This company is brilliant, they collected my car from my home address and once the repair was completed, dropped it back to me again - was even done a day early than expected. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Jon Wood, who dealt with a query after i had my car back - this was done very promptly and efficiently - an excellent service and a massive thanks again. Fully recommended. Thanks again Jon Wood.
