Transmission issues

It doesn't matter if you have a manual or automatic transmission; they both do the same thing. Transmissions, or gearboxes depending on where you're from, provide a reverse gear and mechanical advantage to the engine’s power output. Your engine works best within a given RPM range. Go above that range, and the engine might fly apart violently. At RPMs below the engine’s peak torque output, the engine isn't working as efficiently as it could. The transmission helps keep the engine in a good operating range for maximum power and efficiency. I'm going to divide this article into two sections: automatic transmissions and manual transmissions. We'll start with manual transmissions.
