What we are going to focus on now however are weather conditions that cause gearbox problems. With the autumn months and the winter months approaching did you know colder weather conditions can cause gearbox wear and tear, but how?

In the autumn and winter gearboxes can be exposed to cold if not freezing temperatures. The colder it is means it takes longer for the engine and gearbox components to warm up, this can lead to harsher gear changes leading to wear and tear on the gears in the gearbox.

The photos below show examples of gears that have become warn because gears are not being properly selected inside the gearbox.
