While buying a used vehicle you must know the transmission of the same vehicle. It is important cause transmission of the vehicle also affect the price range.
Transmission in vehicle means an automobile gearbox that is used to change gear ratios as the vehicle moves. It is used in all types of cars, vans, coupes, wagons, SUV, MUV, trucks & other heavy-duty commercial and industrial vehicles and equipment.
These Transmission are mainly divided in to 2 basic categories named as below:
- Automatic Transmission
An automatic transmission (commonly “AT” or “Auto”) is an automobile gearbox that can change gear ratios automatically as the vehicle moves, freeing the driver from having to shift gears manually. Similar but larger devices are also used for heavy-duty commercial and industrial vehicles and equipment.
Most automatic transmissions have a set selection of possible gear ranges, often with a parking pawl feature that will lock the output shaft of the transmission. Continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) can change the ratios over a range rather than between set gear ratios. CVTs have been used for decades in two-wheeled scooters but have seen limited use in a few automobile models. Recently, however, CVT technology has gained greater acceptance among manufacturers and customers, especially in Nissan automobiles and gas-electric Hybrid vehicles.
Automatic Transmission: In the name itself describes that the vehicle will manage the gearbox automatically. It lets the driver free from shifting the gears manually. Mostly the automatic transmissions have a set of selection of possible gear ranges, often with a parking pawl feature that will lock the output shaft of the transmission.
In the details of the vehicles, Automatic Transmission will be written as below:
AT, CAT, DAT, FAT
- Manual Transmission
A manual transmission (also known as a ‘manual’ or ‘stick shift’) is a type of transmission used in automotive applications. It generally utilizes a driver-operated clutch operated by a pedal or lever, for regulating torque transfer from the engine to the transmission, and a gear-shift either operated by hand (as in a car) or by foot (as on a motorcycle). Other types of transmission in mainstream automotive use are the automatic transmission, semi-automatic transmission, and the continuously variable transmission(CVT).
Manual Transmission: As reverse to Automatic Transmission the manual transmission manages the gearbox manually. It is a mechanical transmission, in which gears had been shifted by the driver’s hand on the gear stick or gear lever, rather than automatically.
Manual transmissions are characterized by gear ratios that are selectable by locking selected gear pairs to the output shaft inside the transmission. Conversely, most automatic transmissions feature epicyclic (planetary) gearing controlled by brake bands and/or clutch packs to select gear ratio. Automatic transmissions that allow the driver to manually select the current gear are called semi-automatic transmissions.
In the details of the vehicles, Manual Transmission will be written as below:
MT, C4, C5, C6, C7, C8, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8
