Without a properly functioning transmission you would not be able to change gears. The vehicle would run in first or second and go no faster. In this case the engine would burn out very quickly. If you are having any issues with your transmission such as grinding of the gears or overheating of the engine, turn to your local Slacks Creek mechanics.
