Why Are Transmissions Such a Big Deal?
Vehicle transmissions are a complex system of gears that transmit mechanical power from your engine through the CV joint to the wheels that drive the vehicle. Transmissions convert this power from the engine so that it can supply high torque at low speeds, in addition to selecting which gears are appropriate based on the driving conditions. Rather than using a clutch to engage the transmission, automatic transmissions use a torque converter (between the engine and transmission) to control the number of gears when driving.

Avoid Costly Transmission Repairs
