3 Most important things you should know about gear shift

The gear shifter actually allows the vehicle to be put into different gears on a manual transmission. In an automatic transmission, the gear shifter is known as a gear selector himself .



The gear shifter is normally located between the two front seats of the vehicle on a manual transmission. The gear knob is the top of the gear shifter, and includes a shift pattern that guides the gear selection. The shift pattern indicates which way the gear shifter should be moved when selecting a certain gear.


1. Signs of Problems With Your Gear Shifter


If your vehicle hesitates or does not go into gear, this indicates a problem. It can happen in both automatic and manual transmissions. If you found  this problem in your vehicle, it may be time to get the clutch inspected or have the vehicle inspected by a mechanic.


 While shifting gears, if you hear a grinding or feel shaking, this can indicate a problem with the gears. If the car will not go into gear, this could be an issue with the clutch or shift cables. A mechanic can replace the shift selector cable so you can drive safely again.

 2. Sometimes a gear will slip, meaning it goes in and out of a certain gear. This is a huge safety risk and should be looked at by a professional right away.

 If you want to add uniqueness to your vehicle, consider getting a custom shift knob. They come in various styles such as billiard balls, butterfly knobs, and other themed knobs. 



3. The gear shifter is an important part of your vehicle. It is located in the front part of the vehicle, normally in front of the center console. If you notice issues when shifting gears, it is important to take your vehicle to a mechanic right away as this can be a safety issue.
