Clutch and Transmission

Vehicles come in two types, and this is regarding their transmission systems. Some drivers love the thrill of using a stick shift while others prefer the more sedate automatic vehicle. Nonetheless, both types of transmission come with lots of internal moving parts that are crucial for the operation of a vehicle.

Transmission Types

Automatic Transmission

The only driver intervention that is required to drive an automatic vehicle around Orlando FL is depressing the gas pedal or the brake pedal. The car takes care of changing the gears up or shifting down depending on the vehicles speed.

Manual Transmission

A driver would need to push their foot onto the clutch pedal and then move the shifter to the correct gear in a vehicle that has a manual transmission. This would be up a gear while they are increasing speed, or down to a lower gear when reducing speed.

For both types of transmission systems, there is transmission fluid (oil) that keeps all the parts lubricated. This is to eliminate friction and keep these gear changes as smooth as possible. Although crucial in both, it is more critical inside automatic vehicles, because the pressure is generated by the oil to change the gears.
