What happens when you lose your transmission while driving? I’m concerned I might, just want to know what happens and how to react.

Well if you lose it you need to pull over and go get it :slight_smile:

Typically, they just lose the clutches, and the transmission feels like going into neutral. On a rare occasion, a bearing can seize, and it can jam the drivetrain. These are rare, and most of the time will just drag the car to a stop. Not much you can do, but ride this one out, and try to stay in your lane. Most bearing problems will have noises before anything like this happens. I suggest you have any bearing noises checked out before they jam up on you.
