Automatic vs Semi-Automatic Transmission and Pros Cons

Every automobile contains a transmission system. The purpose of the transmission is basically to give you control over the engine’s power. As the engine generates its power through the internal combustion process, the transmission converts it into a rotational power called torque. The torque is transmitted to the front or rear axles, which causes the

Overdrive Transmission: Function, Working Principle, and Bad Symptoms

Hello autocartimes friends, in this post i will explain about basic function, working principle and bad symptoms of automatic transmission overdrive. Basic Function and Working Principles The highest gear in an automatic transmission is the overdrive gear. The purpose of the overdrive gear is to reduce the engine’s RPM. This represents the revolutions-per-minute of the engine

The Difference between Semi and Full Floating Axle

The wheels of any vehicle are only able to rotate because of their axles. Sometimes these axles are directly connected to the wheels of the vehicle. Other times, the axles are connected to the body instead. Either way, the axles still serve the same purpose for the wheels. The axles also serve another important purpose

5 Symptoms of a Bad Differentials: Front and Rear

Whenever you drive your vehicle, you are going to make turns quite frequently. You must turn when you need to change streets or pull into properties. There are certain components in a vehicle called differentials which make your turns quite smooth. Each time you turn around a corner, your vehicle’s wheels are rotating at varying

Propeller Shaft: Function, Bad Symptoms and Replacement Cost

Do you know the vehicle with rear drive using propeller shaft to turn rear wheel? And in this post i will explain the basic function, working principle, bad symptoms and average replacement cost of propeller shaft. Basic Function and Working Principle The internal combustion engine generates torque power which moves the wheels of the car.

Pros and Cons: Limited Slip Differential vs. Locking Differential

Differentials are components of a vehicle which help transmit power from the internal combustion engine to the wheels. When you’re driving and turning at different speeds, the differentials are what allow the wheels to rotate at these speeds. If you didn’t have differentials, then wheel rotation would not be possible as you accelerate or slow

The Average Cost to Change Transmission Fluid: Automatic and Manual

The purpose of transmission fluid is to lubricate the transmission’s internal components and keep them cooled down. It is kind of like how engine oil does the same thing for engine components. Remember that engine power is transmitted to the wheels by the transmission system. There are two types of transmissions that a vehicle may

5 Symptoms of Transmission Fluid Leak and Repair Cost

The transmission needs to stay lubricated always. The axles of our vehicle depend on the transmission because it transmits power from the engine to them. The more demands placed on the transmission, the more important it is to have the proper amount of transmission fluid in it. This needs to be high quality transmission fluid

How Often to Change Car Transmission Fluid in Manual and Automatic

The car transmission serves a very important purpose for your vehicle. It allows engine power to be transmitted to the wheels of your vehicle. That is why it is called a “transmission.” There are lots of moving components inside of a transmission just like there are in your engine. These components will generate a lot

The Average Differential Repair Cost: Front and Rear

Your automobile has a front differential, rear differential, or both. The kinds of vehicles which have both differentials are those with 4-wheel drive capabilities. These require separate gearboxes for the middle of the two front wheels and the two rear wheels. The average economy car has front wheel drive, which means the differential exists in
