Transmissions work to transfer power from the engine to the vehicle. It allows the car to work at different speeds or gears. The automatic transmission has parts like the clutches, bands, hydraulic systems, and gear pumps. The planetary gear set is the starting point. It creates the different possible gear ratios used by your vehicle.
There are three parts to this system, including the sun gear, two or more planet gears, the planet's gear carrier, and the ring gear. Another part of the transmission is the torque converter. Transmission fluid is converted from the hydraulic system and it helps these parts run correctly. Manual transmissions have a clutch that the driver operates to make it work and change gears. It also has a gear selector, fork, collars, and several shafts and gears. Both systems are complex and require skilled technicians to make sure everything runs smoothly.
