How far can you drive with no gearbox oil?

We drain and fully clean a Lada gearbox to see how far you can go when the transmission is completely dry inside. The result - further than you might expect.

  • My Vectra had been leaking oil - found it was the gearbox filter seal, and the gearbox was bone dry. luckly had it fixed, as the gears had been getting harder to change as it warmed up

    Marris InternationalMarris International27 päivää sitten
  • I think it could last even longer if you kept driving at the same gear (i believe the 4th gear is a 1 to 1 ratio, it doesn't use the intermediate shaft)

  • My dad has a Lada 2106 in pristine condition. It's in Armenia, so he never drives it because we are in the U.S. It's in pristine condition and it is beautiful in my opinion, however, there are bunch of them. Most of them are used for work and surprisingly they are still on the road till this day. I'm trying to convince my dad so that he can import it here ( I have to say they are not safe at all...)

  • У меня важное сообщение для российских граждан. У меня нет контактов с Россией, так что извините за это сообщение, Путин, скорее всего, знает это, я был бы удивлен, если бы он этого не сделал. Коммунист-глобалист хочет наказать «Путина» (они транслировали это по американскому телевидению), но жертвами, скорее всего, будут гражданские лица, поэтому я чувствую, что мне нужно предупредить российских мирных жителей о том, что что-то происходит, они заявили, что будут использовать прикрытые операции, используйте свое воображение ... это может быть что угодно. будьте готовы, запасайтесь едой.
