An Overview of Automatic Transmission

In a modern vehicle, the mechanical components are usually complicated and this includes automatic transmission. The harmonious systems working together are hardly noticed unless there’s something wrong. These systems include the hydraulics, mechanical, computer controls, and electrical systems.

How Does It Work?
You can find the automatic transmission at the engine’s backside. This is the part that sends power to a car’s drive wheels. The aim of the transmission is to ensure the delivery of power and keep the engine within the RPM or revolutions per minute of the vehicle. Whether you are driving a rear wheel or a front wheel drive, the automatic transmission is of two types.

You can find the transmission beside the gas pedal, at the floorboard’s center underneath the hump. This is common amongst rear wheel drives. This is a much simpler system because power will move straight from the car engine to the torque converter, transmission, drive shaft, and finally, to the rear wheels.

In front wheel drives, transaxle is formed after the final drive. It in this setting, the process is a bit complicated but if you are interested in cars, you will know where the power travels until it reaches the front wheels.

The Benefits
Instead of investing in a car with manual transmission, it’s best to purchase a model with automatic transmission. The following are the benefits of cars with automatic transmission:

1.       Operate with ease without the need for a clutch. The transmission handles the gear shifting to match with the deceleration or acceleration. You only shift between drive, park, and reverse which are very easy to master.
2.       If you have plans of reselling your car in the near future, you should choose the vehicle with automatic transmission because it can be sold at a much higher price.
3.       If you live in a city where there is heavy traffic, this automatic transmission can perform better than the manual ones.
4.       Cars with automatic transmission are widely available, and are manufactured by many companies. This means that you can easily find used or new models that will fit into your budget.
5.       You can expect accurate shifting of gears and powerful performance that prevents breakage.

It is the automatic transmission that controls shifting of the gears. Manual transmission vehicles can’t perform this task accurately because most drivers are not that good. Even if you’re still a new driver, you don’t have to worry about using a clutch. For a newbie, using a clutch can be complicated. The biggest selling point of modern cars with automatic transmissions is the ease of operation. Even if such cars are pricier than manual transmission cars, many people are willing to pay. The high resale value is an added advantage.

Since the needs of drivers vary greatly, you can find the most suitable car that meets your requirements. With a little knowledge of what transmission is all about, you can make an informed choice. Take your time in looking for the best value vehicle that you can use every time you go out of the house.
