Car Mechanics  |  March 2017  


AUTOMATED MANUAL GEARBOXES
The traditional automatic gearbox, equipped with a torque converter and planetary gear sets, has been a victim of its own success. Even today, many people, including the motor trade, think that there are only two types of transmission available: manual and automatic. This is not the case. Well established problems with the autobox include high cost, hefty weight and low
efficiency, compared with a traditional manual ’box. While these disadvantages
are masked by high-power engines, they are highlighted when automatic
gearboxes are fitted to lower-powered and less expensive vehicles. A solution
that manufacturers have adopted is to use a manual gearbox that has both its
clutch and gears activated via electronics, thus giving the driver the convenience of a traditional automatic gearbox without the cost and performance drawbacks.
Car Mechanics is the UK's only magazine with essential advice on maintaining and repairing popular makes and models of car. If you fancy yourself as a home mechanic, then this is an invaluable motoring resource that appeals to both the DIY car enthusiast and the more experienced motor trade professional.
