There is no engine component more complex and essential than a car’s transmission. Transmissions are responsible for shifting gears (automatically or manually) to dynamically change the speed-torque ratio delivering power to the wheels in an efficient manner. The is because engines output a high rotational speed which can’t be used for low speeds. Using gear ratios, a transmission reduces the rotational speed and increases the torque, or power to the wheels.
Most vehicles use a 5 or 6 speed transmission meaning they have that many gear ratios to allow the vehicle to travel at the full range of speeds and to making use of the engine’s output power as efficiently as possible. Due to their complexity, constant use and function within a vehicle’s operation, transmissions experience a lot of wear and tear. Add to this the fact that many owner’s forget to check and change the fluid on a regular basis and it’s easy to understand why so many people have transmission problems.
