How to reset computer controls or mechanically adjust to reduce slipping of AW40A340E3 speed Automatic Transmission for 1992 Volvo 960?
Depends if you have a manual or automatic. Manual transmission, no, there is no transmission computer. For an automatic transmission, the engine computer and transmission computer are one unit typically called an ECM, Engine control module. There are many different names for and ECM. Ford started using computer controlled transmissions in the early 90's and late 80's.
The transmission computer is only found in automatic cars because it controls that which in a manual car the driver controls, the shifting. The transmission computer is what generally makes a car automatic because it changes gears automatically without any effort from the driver (except of course the gas & brake).
If you replace an automatic transmission with an identical automatic transmission is it necessary to change the code in the on-board computer?
Is yours an autoshift, or a fully automatic transmission? With the autoshifts, the synchroniser has a bad tendency to go out because of improper clutch manipulation. This shouldn't be an issue with a fully automatic transmission, however, and if that's what yours is, the first two culprits would be faulty circuitry in the transmission computer, or poor coordination between the computer in the transmission and the engine computer (this was a recurring problem for Allision…
yes you can ,but you will need to buy and have installed, a new flywheel, bell housing, transmission, clutch, and drive shaft. then you will also have to have installed a clutch pedal inside the car. and to top it off, it the car has a computer, you will need to buy a computer to match a standard shift instead of an automatic shift. cheaper just to change cars
What would be the advantages of having a car with an automatic transmission over a car with a manual transmission?
A manual transmission will require a driver operated clutch pedal to shift gears, and thus allow for shifting on demand as opposed to waiting for a computer to determine shift points. An automatic transmission uses computer algorithms to determine shift points based upon engine load, speed, and overall fuel economy. More driveline drag exists with an automatic transmission because of more moving parts, and thus an automatic will typically have slightly lower fuel economy than…
P0700 is EATX code present. It simply means that the engine computer has noticed that the transmission computer has a dtc in it. This causes the Pcm (engine computer) to turn the check engine light on. You will need to have the TCM (trans computer) checked for codes to know what to diagnose. General automatic transmission fault. It could be a sticky internal sensor. A transmission shop could read the actual fault from the transmission.
