What Does a Transmission Do?
The transmission is an assembly containing hundreds of pieces that collectively are used to transmit power between the engine and the drive wheels under control. When you shift out of park, the transmission lets you move in forward or reverse. As you press the gas, a series of clutches, gears, and sensors enable the transmission to shift, finding the right gear for your performance demands.
Transmission fluid is circulated and creates hydraulic pressure to make it all work, plus it cools and lubricates the parts contained inside the assembly. The transmission is arguably the most complex unit in any vehicle.
