What gear do you speak of?

Hi Tom. it is the gear box. I had a technician who checked the gear box from below after lifting the car up and found water inside it. I was told however if I change the gear oil with the filter twice then the problem will be solved, others told me that I have no choice other than to buy a new gear box. It is worth to mention that the car makes jolting movement the day the water comes to the gear box.Please advise. ( note: the gear box for my car is coming with 6 gear positions). I just want to know if there is any solution other than buying a new gear box.
