Transmission 101

Automatic transmission

When the engine is busy generating the power you need to turn each drive wheel, the transmission does what the engine cannot – the transmission diverts variable torque into each drive wheel when you push on the gas pedal. Depending upon the terrain and the speed you want to travel, an automatic transmission relies on a computerized control unit, sensors, and gears to automatically select the perfect torque and gear for the smoothest ride possible. When the Automatic Transmission is operating at peak performance, it almost shifts gears seamlessly while you travel and you barely notice what’s happening. However, developing a transmission problem is a real threat to your driving experience, vehicle reliability, and passenger safety. The best way to correct an Automatic Transmission problem is with an Automatic Transmission Service at Travers Premier Auto Service.
