Simply put, a transmission allows power to be sent from a power source, most often an engine or motor, to a drive mechanism. Transmissions use gears and a clutch to convert the speed of the power source into torque. A simpler transmission is often referred to as a gearbox since it is basically a box containing a configuration of gears.

If your car won't move, your transmission is blown. If there is transmission oil underneath your car, you have a leak.

To do a transmission flush, first read the manual to your car. You will find out when you will need to do a transmission flush and how to do a flush.

the transmission check point is under the car on the drivers side of the transmission. you need a 16mm spanner and you need to check it when the transmission is hot. and the car running. if you check the transmission when the car is at operating temp with the car switched off, the level will be down. the car must be in the park position.

The transmission allows you to shift gears.

A car with an automatic transmission.

That would depend on what transmission it is and for what car.

A car with an automatic transmission automatically put the car into gear without any other inputs needed from the driver. A manual transmission car uses a stick shift to shift gears of the car, which involves more direction from the driver to operate the car properly.

Yes, but you have to remove the automatic transmission housing, and you have to replace the Torque Converter with a standard transmission clutch that matches the type of transmission with which you are mating the engine.

The PCM will not affect the transmission in your car. The PCM is not related to the transmission in any way.

When an automatic car jerks into fourth gear it could be the transmission. You may need transmission fluid or a new transmission. A licensed mechanic can check the car.

transmission filler is located under the car. car needs to be jacked up to replace and refill transmission.

It means that you do not have stick shift in your car, your car shifts gears for you, you don't have to do it, so basically if you don't have a stick shift car you have an automatic transmission car.

I always need to check my transmission in a car.

Most automobiles do not have a transmission light or icon on the dashboard of the car. When a problem with the transmission occurs, and icon of the engine will appear.

Yes, it is worth replacing the transmission instead of getting a new car. You will have to pay thousands for a new car, but your transmission may only be $2,000.

MANUAL TRANSMISSION because its more powerful and quicker then a automatic. Your muscle car will not have muscle without a manual transmission

A car with a manual or stick shift transmission.
