sportrak warm gear stick area thing


Hi. I recently drove my sportrak for about 2 hours on the motorway, and noticed at the end of the journey that the area around the gear stick and handbrake felt quite warm. Does anyone know if this is something to be concerned about?

Warm gearbox


I quite often do a couple of hours on the motorway between birmingham and london, and the gearbox tunnle around the lever does get warm, from the heat of the gearbox. As long as its not rediculously hot there shouldnt be a problem, all cars do it (certianly as far as im aware).


hot gear

you should top up the oil if its that bad or replace it .
all my cars hav got a bit warm ... hope this helps you a bit m8
