Ford Gearboxes, Transmissions & Replacement Parts


Ford Transmissions

Ford transmissions are responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, enabling you to drive your vehicle at your desired speed. They’re among the most critical components of your car, as you can’t hit the road with a faulty gearbox. If you’re looking for a genuine replacement for your transmission, you’re in the right place.

We offer a broad range of Ford transmissions and individual components for popular models like Everest, Focus, Ranger, and Territory. Explore our online catalogue to find an extensive list of parts and accessories compatible with your vehicle.

What are the different types of transmissions in cars?

In general, there are three types of Ford transmissions:

Manual Transmission

This type of transmission is more popularly known as the stick shift. It is the simplest transmission type in terms of mechanism and maintenance, but it is the hardest to operate. It requires you to shift gears manually to control torque transfer from the engine to the transmission. That means you have to press the clutch pedal and manoeuvre the shift knob every time you switch gears.

Automatic Transmission

An automatic transmission is significantly easier to drive than manual alternatives. If you lack time to learn the complexities of driving a stick shift, this transmission type is ideal. It essentially uses a computer to automatically shift gears as you accelerate and decelerate, enabling you to focus solely on the road. 

Automatic Ford transmissions typically have five to ten gears. A higher gear count allows them to perform optimally at different speeds. However, it is worth noting that their specialised components make them more prone to failure than manual transmissions.

Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) 

This type of automatic transmission is also referred to as shiftless transmission. While a conventional automatic transmission uses gears to generate varying speeds, a continuous variable transmission uses a belt-driven design cantered around two dynamic rubber or metal pulleys. 

These pulleys can change diameter, allowing them to mimic the effect of gears being engaged and move through a limitless range of effective gears. However, this type of transmission has inferior torque-handling capabilities than manual and conventional automatic transmissions, making it unsuitable for off-road terrain. 

How to choose the right transmission for your Ford vehicle?

We make it easy to find suitable Ford transmissions for your vehicle. All you have to do is enter your car’s model, year, and variant to get an exhaustive list of parts and accessories compatible with your ride. You can also use our powerful search engine to narrow down the results even further.

Whether you’re looking for a whole transmission system or individual components, we can cater to your demands. The following are just some of the transmission parts we have in stock:

  • Brake Bands: These components form part of a transmission’s planetary gear control system. They’re flexible steel plates lined with friction material that absorbs transmission fluid to aid in heat dissipation.
  • Gear Shifters: These components are usually found between the two front seats of a vehicle. They feature a shift pattern that guides drivers about gear selection.  
  • Gear Shift Forks: These components are exclusively for manual Ford transmissions. They’re forked-end metal levers that slide gears in and out of engagement to shift from one ratio to another.  
  • Transfer Boxes: These components are partly responsible for transferring power from the transmission to the wheels. They also synchronise the difference between the rotation of the front and rear wheels.

Once you get your transmission repaired or replaced, you must follow these basic maintenance tips to extend its service life:

  1. Check the transmission fluid level every once  
  2. Take care of your cooling system
  3. Avoid resting your foot on the brake pedal
  4. Make sure to lift your foot off the clutch pedal entirely with every gear shift
  5. Wait until your car is at a complete stop before shifting into park or reverse
  6. Let your engine and transmission warm up before hitting the road
