Vehicle Shaft Repair

With a lower price to maintain, exceptional vehicle handling, as well as increased gas performance, a manual transmission is the favored option of countless motorists still today, though it has lost its attraction, due to the convenience of the automatic transmission. But, should you drive a stick-shift, 12th Street Auto Care Center can repair your manual transmission and vehicle for you, and we can offer financing, should you require it.

Input, Layshaft and Output Shafts

There are three kinds of gear shafts within a manual transmission: the output shaft, the input shaft, and the layshaft.

  • Output Shaft: the output shaft is connected to the differential, which allows the wheels of a vehicle to turn at different speeds.
  • Input Shaft: the input shaft is connected directly to the engine and turns at the same speed, or carries the same rotational power that the engine puts out.
  • Layshaft: the layshaft is a mesh of gears as one whole unit, which works with the input shaft to shift between gears, selected by the gear selector fork.
