Transmission position sensors let the computer and driver know what gear the vehicle is in.

Every vehicle we drive needs to have some sort of way to determine the road speed as the vehicle is in motion.

A transmission oil pressure switch, also commonly known as a line pressure switch, is used on transmissions with hydraulic fluid under pressure.

Vehicles with a standard (manual) transmission now account for only 1 in 10 new cars manufactured.

Whether you have a manual or an automatic transmission in your vehicle, the transmission fluid is one of the most overlooked fluids when it comes to maintenance.

Most vehicles use some sort of transmission to transfer the power generated from the engine, into usable power that can turn the wheels.

The transmission speed sensor measures the RPMs of the shaft of the transmission.

All automatic transmission vehicles have a safety switch in place that only allows them to start if they are in park or neutral gars.

There are so many components involved in a vehicle running properly, but some of the main ones are rather basic in their role.

When you put your gear selector in drive, you expect to be able to move forward.

Modern transmissions are much more advanced than they were only a few decades ago, particularly automatic transmission.

In order for a car to run smoothly, the engine and the transmission will have to work together.

Universal joints (“u-joints” for short) are components of the driveshaft assembly fitted to most rear-wheel drive trucks, four-wheel drive trucks and SUVs, or off-road vehicles.

The transmission speed sensors are used to calculate the actual gear ratio of the transmission while in use.

On most modern cars, trucks, and SUVs, the transmission and components inside are monitored by a series of sensors and switches that relay information to the ECM every millisecond.

The transmission position sensor, also known as the transmission range sensor, is an electronic sensor that provides a position input to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) so that the transmission can be properly controlled by the PCM according to the position commanded by the sensor.

Having an engine and transmission that work harmoniously is critical for efficient driving.

The crankshaft harmonic balancer is a device connected to the front of an engine’s crankshaft, usually built into the crankshaft pulley.

There are a lot of decisions that have to be made when buying a new car.
