It’s complicated! Life, relationship, your job, your house, your car, its transmission.

“Power from the engine drive the pistons. These pistons in turn drive the crankshaft which drives the flywheel” Flywheel, clutching mechanism, gearbox input shaft, main shaft, lay shaft, dog clutch, the differential etc.


At RepairMyTranasmission.com we’re about keeping things simple.

So here goes …

               The engine sends power to the transmission which then powers the drive wheels.

               The transmission is the ‘bit in the middle’ controlling the speed and torque.

All this is very finely synchronized.

Think of it like cogs all interconnected driving one another. The cogs being the gears and the engine is what turns the cogs.

Or if clutching mechanism, gearbox input shaft, main shaft, etc, makes your head hurt just to think of it as the ‘bit in the middle’ between the engine and the wheels.

Types of Transmissions

Car transmissions work differently for Manual the Automatic cars.



On a manual car, the transmission connects to the engine through the clutch. Pressing the clutch disconnects, and releasing the clutch connects, the engine and transmission.



Automatics don’t have a clutch or sticky. They’re just very clever. Let’s just leave it at that.
Trust us you don’t want to hear all about torque converters, “planetary” arrangement, “sun” gear, “planet carrier” or “carrier” that holds multiple planet gears, “ring” gear, etc.

What could possibly go wrong?

A lot!
Some of the signs there is something wrong with your transmission are as follows:



In an automatic, you put your car into ‘Drive’ but there’s a delay as the gear engages. In a manual, you put the car into gear and hear engine revving but the car doesn’t move. Gear changes should be instant so any delay needs to be checked out.

Transmission fluid

Its bright red so if you find it on your drive you need to find the leak and get it fixed. Low levels of transmission fluid can lead to much bigger problems so get it checked out.


Humming, buzzing, clunking sounds are just a few telltale signs. For example, a horrible grinding noise when shifting gear is possibly the clutch not engage with other parts of the transmission properly.


Gear changes don’t appear smooth.

Burning smell 

This could be transmission fluid overheating. Get it checked out.

Aside from all the above, you may just get a ‘service light’ appear on your dashboard. Don’t ignore it. Get it checked out.

It’s all a bit too much, isn’t it? That’s why here at RepairTransmission.com we know……

“Car transmission systems are complex. Let us make repairing then simple.”
