Even if you are not all that familiar with what is going on under the hood of your car, you’ve probably heard of the transmission before. This vital piece of machinery acts as a gearbox that is mounted onto the engine itself. The transmission then converts combustion power created in the engine into physical momentum.
The average transmission has either five or six sets of gears. When it works correctly, the transmission lets drivers control how much power the car is receiving without making any changes to how fast the engine is running. A well-functioning transmission will ensure that your car engine is not spinning either too slow or too fast.
