A car cannot work without a transmission because of the characteristics of the internal combustion engine. Engines typically operate over a range of 600 to about 7000 rpm (though this varies, and is typically less for diesel engines), while the car's wheels rotate between 0 rpm and around 1800 rpm.
In motor vehicles, the transmission generally is connected to the engine crankshaft via a flywheel or clutch or fluid coupling, partly because internal combustion engines cannot run below a particular speed. The output of the transmission is transmitted via the driveshaft to one or more differentials, which drives the wheels. While a differential may also provide gear reduction, its primary purpose is to permit the wheels at either end of an axle to rotate at different speeds (essential to avoid wheel slippage on turns) as it changes the direction of rotation.
The first stage in the transmission of a car with a manual gearbox is the clutch.
It transmits engine power to the gearbox, and allows transmission to be interrupted while a gear is selected to move off from a stationary position, or when gears are changed while the car is moving.
When your transmission needs an overhaul, one option is to have it rebuilt. Your transmission will be completely removed from your vehicle. Once it is out and disassembled, each part is carefully inspected and cleaned, if necessary. Even when being rebuilt, certain parts may still need to be replaced after inspection. After the necessary parts are repaired or replaced, the transmission is reassembled and installed back into your vehicle.
