When we diagnose a vehicle and let our customers know that their transmission has gone bad and will need a repair or replacement, we are often asked what the transmission actually is. First of all, in order for a car to work, your vehicle must have gears. Gears are the elements of the vehicle that make the car go fast, slow or even in reverse. The transmission is basically the gear shifter. While some vehicles have automatic transmissions that recognize your speed and automatically shift gears for you, other vehicles shift gears with a manual transmission, or clutch. Your transmission ultimately provides all the speed and torque conversions from the gears to your power source, allowing your vehicle to go! Without your transmission, it’s safe to say that you aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
