About Gearboxes

The job of the car's transmission system is to transmit the power made in the engine to the wheels of the car and consists of the clutch, gearbox, drive shaft, universal joints, rear axle and wheel. There are two types of gearbox transmission; manual and automatic. 

The MG <model> manual transmission gearbox comes into play by enabling the driver to select the right gear for the speed the car is travelling at, ensuring the engine can function as efficiently as possible. In a manual transmission gearbox the driver controls the gears manually by releasing the accelerator pedal whilst pressing the clutch foot pedal and engaging the correct gear for the driving conditions and speed. Then the clutch is released and pressure reapplied on the accelerator. The correct gear is selected by hand, using a gear stick, which operates the gear linkage (a series of levers and rods) enabling the correct gear to be engaged. A driver of a car with a manual gearbox can normally select from between four to six forward gears, one reverse gear and neutral position. The MG <model> manual transmission gearbox is normally attached by bolts to the back of the engine, next to the clutch. The MG <model> manual transmission gearbox tends to be more fuel efficient than automatic or continuously variable gearbox transmissions. 

On the other hand, the MG <model> automatic transmission uses both a mechanical and a hydraulic system to change the gears in the car automatically. The MG <model> automatic transmission gearbox is attached to a torque converter which fixes directly to the engine of the car. The MG <model> automatic transmission gearbox comes into play when the driver applies or releases pressure on the accelerator, by automatically selecting and changing the gears for the driver. The MG <model> automatic transmission gearbox selects the right gear for the speed the car is travelling at, adjusting the speed of the car accordingly, whilst ensuring the engine can function as efficiently as possible. This all enables the driver to concentrate on driving without needing to manually change the gears. Generally automatic transmissions have 4 gears consisting of drive, first gear, second gear, park, reverse and neutral.  The MG <model> automatic transmission gearbox tends to be less fuel efficient than a manual transmission gearbox but offers the driver a smooth ride and the ease of not having to change gears manually. 

The gearbox transmission, although built to last and easy to maintain with proper care and attention, will over time need replacing due to damage caused by heat and friction. In a manual gearbox transmission, careless driving, such as choosing the wrong gear by mistake, can speed up wear and tear and cause damage to the gearbox transmission. If you are experiencing problems when changing gear, it is important to get your car's transmission system looked at by a professional and you may need to replace the MG <model> gearbox transmission. 
 

MG trivia

  • MG cars go through a rigorous testing process at the R&D facility, where they pass through a safety lab, thermal emissions lab, architecture lab, powertrain lab, and thermal wind tunnel lab before getting down to the real nitty-gritty of the testing process.
  • The MG Hector is the longest SUV in the world at just over four-and-a-half metres, and that was just the first model! Now, you can get the even longer Hector Plus. The original Hector also had the largest boot in its class, which could store up to 587kg.
  • It’s still a British brand, but MG is now under SAIC Motor, China’s biggest vehicle manufacturer. SAIC Motor is one of the top-ranked Fortune 500 companies in the world, and exports more cars from China than any other manufacturer.
  • At the moment, MG cars hold an impressive 40 different world land speed records, which might explain why the current MG slogan is ‘Safety Fast’.
  • Honda won the Manufacturer’s Championship for a four-year streak but was finally destroyed by MG in 2014 when the MG6 GT (which had only been competing for three years) beat its rival with an impressive 95-point win at Brands Hatch. MG also came second in the Constructors Championship in 2015.
