Transmission & Clutch Repair
What is a transmission?
The transmission works in conjunction with your vehicleвЂ™s engine to deliver power to your vehicleвЂ™s wheels. It doesnвЂ™t matter if you have an automatic transmission or a manual transmission as transmission plays a significant role in the overall performance of your vehicle. Be sure to check it at the first sign of problem.
What are the parts of a transmission?
A transmission/transaxle ensures the engineвЂ™s output is correctly matched to the speed and load conditions of your vehicle.
The torque converter is connected to the automatic transmission/transaxle input shaft. It connects, multiplies and interrupts the transfer of engine torque into the transmission.
Universal joints and/or Constant Velocity (CV) joints attach to the driveshaft to transfer output power from the transmission to the rear axle on rear-wheel-drive cars or to the front axle on front-wheel-drive cars. These joints also permit the driveshaft and/or CV shaft to work at an angle.
The various types of automatic transmission fluids serve many purposes: from cleaning, cooling, and lubricating, to transmitting force and pressure, while inhibiting varnish buildup. This has the effect of continually protecting the transmission.
