Are you noticing a slight delay when you put your car into gear? Or perhaps it refuses to go into gear entirely? This might be an indication that your car transmission is experiencing problems and since a car’s transmission is no different from any other component within a vehicle any malfunction warrants cause for urgent repair before it causes more serious problems.

How A Car Transmission System Works

Car TransmissionBasically a car’s transmission operates by using gears and gear trains to create torque and speed which are then converted from a rotating power source onto another device. In automobiles the transmission connects to the engine’s crankshaft via a flywheel or clutch and combines with fluid.  This permits the wheels at either end of an axle to rotate at different speeds as it changes the direction of rotation.

What Causes Malfunction In A Car Transmission

In automatic car transmissions as soon as a driver shifts gears from park to drive or reverse the car should immediately go into the selected gear. The same concept also applies to manual transmissions as well however you know that you are encountering an issue if you experience delay when shifting gears or if the engine’s RPMs are surging but the car hardly moves.

As time passes by a car’s transmission system can sustain more wear than most other systems of a vehicle and mainly occurs as a result of heat and friction produced by moving, interacting, components. So if a car transmission is not properly maintained and any existing issues not addressed car owners may either face hefty expenses to fix issues or may eventually have to replace their vehicle.

Another very popular occurrence that can signal trouble for you transmission is a leak. Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) represents the ‘blood’ of a transmission system as it lubricates, cleans and conditions the seals and acts as hydraulic fluid within the system. If this fluid gets too low the engine will seize up and stop working completely.
