Types of Automatic Gearbox

There are many different types of automatic, offering several options for drivers. These are CVT, dual-clutch, torque-converter, and automated manual. Otherwise known as a continuously variable transmission, a CVT automatic has no cogs and instead features two cones. One is attached to the wheels and the other is attached to the engine. These are linked by a belt which changes position as you accelerate. This results in smoother gear transitions and a good fuel economy.

A dual-clutch also returns a good fuel economy along with fast gear changes. This was first used within the popular Audi TT and uses two clutches. Torque converters are a more traditional automatic and can be found in most automatic vehicles. These gearboxes are known for their reliable and smooth transmissions, as well as minimal engine noise.

Finally, an automated manual is operated electronically and changes gear automatically. The clutch will be disengaged, new gear selected, and the clutch re-engaged. However, this gearbox can react slowly and cause jerky transmissions.

If you find yourself in need of automatic gearbox repair, do not hesitate to contact our team today.


Do I Need To Replace My Gearbox?

There are a few signs to look out for if you’re worried about your automatic gearbox. If your transmission fails, then it is obvious it needs replacing. However, there can be other issues that are harder to spot. Some common signs include slipping, delayed shifts, and hard shifts. Slipping occurs when the engine revs higher than normal for the speed currently being travelled. Hard shifts are when the transmission quickly and suddenly slams into the next gear and delayed shifts occur when changes are left right to the last moment.

If there are whining sounds, leaking fluid, grinding or shaking, then these could signify a problem.
