What Is a Shifter Bushing?

gear shift

Sometimes your car, truck, or SUV stops performing quite like it used to. At Wayne & Sons Automotive Repair in Santa Rosa, we can fix that. A simple but common issue on vehicles equipped with a manual transmission is shifter bushing issues. Your shifter has a bushing on the end of it, where it connects to the actual transmission. Its purpose is to provide tight, smooth shifting. 

When the bushing wears out or breaks, shifting becomes sloppy and loose, and sometimes gears can be difficult to find. Fortunately, the problem can be corrected fairly easily, and your car will be shifting like brand new in no time. Since this is typically an issue that develops slowly over time, it often goes ignored or unnoticed as you continuously adapt to live with it.

However, eventually, the car becomes a burden to drive, and once the problem is corrected you remember just how good your car is capable of shifting; the feel of your shifter is a major aspect of your driving experience. To have your shifter problems corrected, and for any and all of your transmission repair and maintenance needs, Wayne & Sons Automotive Repair has you covered. Call or stop by the best transmission service and repair shop in Santa Rosa today.
