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.
there is a computer for the automatic transmission but i did not think there was a relay. I would have to double check.
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).
The transmission computer is an important part of all automatic vehicles. It controls the gear changes without the driver having to manually do it themselves.
Electronic control unit or computerElectronic control unit or computer
no The computer will loose all set codes when the battery is disconected for any amount of time usually 30sec to 5min depending on make of car
To change an automatic galant to a 5-speed, you need a Computer for the Manual transmission of that year, and an engine.
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 automatics coupled to Detroit Diesel motors). There should be a way of reading off fault codes from the transmission, but that's going to probably require you to go to a mechanic with the necessary computer software to do such.
The problems may be overwhelming. The onboard computer may not be able to handle a different transmission. It all depends on the interconnectivity between engine, computer and transmission.
Yes u MUST change the computer if you are changing the transmission from auto to manual (visa versa). The computers are different for the especially where the trannirs are concerned.
The engine computer on the firewall also handles the transmission.
Replace your AT Control Unit (Automatic Transmission Computer)
If its an automatic it is a sealed transmission and has to be taking to the dealer and hooked up to their computer to check the fluid level.
if the bolt up you can you might need to add some computer stuff depending on what year the car or truck is.
4 Speed Electronically Controlled Transmission. An automatic transmission with 4 forward gears and shifting that is controlled by a computer.
The purpose of the automatic transmission is that is shifts for you. You'll want to lock your transmission into your ideal gear for going up and down steep inclines to prevent it from downshifting, but, other than that, you typically let the computer do the shifting for you.
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
Automatic Repeat reQuest, an errot control mechanism for data transmission.See the Related Link.
A car with an automatic transmission allows you to do less work while you drive. The car does all of the gear changing for you so you just have to concentrate on accelerating and steering. There is also less damage done to the transmission as human error is removed and it is run by a computer.
depending on car, u will need new computer, torque converter, transmission, auto shifter, bell housing (if not included with transmission). The last answer was backwards giving you info for changing an automatic into a standard.
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 a manual transmission equipped vehicle.
Sounds like the tranny. Check the transmission fluid level and the color of the fluid.
You need to check the transmission computer for codes to know possible causes.
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.
