My daughter came into town for spring break. She informed me that there was a noise coming from the front end of her Equinox. She told me this on Thursday morning (after she had been in town since the previous weekend...and she had to be back to work Monday). It's Friday morning (thinking no place will take it in on short notice) I took it to Discount Tire and they told me that what I described, they don't do that sort of work. They said 'we normally refer people to Phoenix'. I go up the road to Phoenix and explain my problem and the car's. Allan told me 'we'll squeeze her in'. I don't know any place that would've said that. None. I'm taking my vehicle there from now on. Great people.

Manual transmissions aren’t necessarily simple, but they’re much easier to understand in concept than their automatic counterparts. You’re probably aware there are gears in manual transmissions - but there’s a little more to it than that. Here are some of the major components you’ll find in a manual transmission.

Shafts - There are three main shafts inside a manual transmission. There’s an input shaft where engine power is transferred via the clutch, and that drives the layshaft, also known as the countershaft. The countershaft has different sized gears to achieve various gear ratios. Corresponding gears on the countershaft connect to the output shaft. The output shaft is connected to the driveshaft, which powers the differential.
