Transmissions are designed to help move a vehicle with little effort from the engine. Transmissions are the most complex object in a vehicle other than the computer system. Keeping a transmission clean and operating correctly ensures a longer life.

Clutch Kit: How Does Automatic Transmission Change Gears?

As drivers, we know how the transmission works: we push the clutch in, change the gear and then continue driving normally. Manual transmission also teaches us how to perform clutch control without stalling or rolling on an incline. So how does an automatic car change gears?

There are more parts in this system that makes it a more complicated system. An automatic car has something called a torque converter. For the car to move forward, whether manual or automatic, torque is needed for the initial momentum.

The torque converter is a fluid link where its job is to connect the engine to the transmission and the transmission to the driven wheels (Front Wheel Drive or Rear Wheel Drive).

The engine is connected to the transmission in a bell housing. This is where the torque converter is. The transmission also contains something called planetary gear sets which provide different gear ratios.

How to Improve Automatic Transmission Performance and Reliability

Transmissions are designed to help move a vehicle with little effort from the engine. Transmissions are the most complex object in a vehicle other than the computer system. Keeping a transmission clean and operating correctly ensures a longer life.

There are three types of transmissions: manual, automatic, and electric. The manual and automatic transmissions both have service intervals. Electric transmissions do not have service intervals as they are a sealed unit.

There are 6 ways to improve automatic transmission performance and reliability. These are servicing the transmission, changing driving habits, driving with lower gears when loaded, maintaining engine performance, having proper alignment of tires, and having the correct tire size.

The arrangement of the tires can make a huge change in how the transmission functions during driving circumstances. You could alter the toe alignment on your own without having any exceptional tools. And for your body repair needs we at Guanella will take care of it for you.
