Sounds like an gearbox oil issue in that case renewing might be worth carrying out - so could be worth at least persuing that option as far as changing the oil in the gearbox..and then access the condition of the oil thats come see if its burnt or has any noticeble metallic particles within it that may suggest an internal problem..
