  Automatic Transmissions A Short Course on How They Work
Transmission repairs describes the types of repairs that are typically performed on transmissions from minor adjustments to complete overhauls.
The transmission oil pump (not to be confused with the pump element inside the torque converter) is responsible for producing all the oil pressure that is required in the transmission.
If a late model transmission (computer-controlled transmissions started becoming popular in the early '90s) is not shifting properly, it is often the result of a computer sending incorrect signals due to a faulty sensor, or the transmission is not reacting to the computer command because of a bad connection or defective solenoid pack.

  Transmission (mechanics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mechanics, a transmission or gearbox is the gear and/or hydraulic system that transmits mechanical power from a prime mover (which can be an engine or electric motor), to some form of useful output device.
Transmissions are also used in agricultural, industrial, construction, and mining equipment.
In the past, automatic transmissions of this type have had a number of problems; they were complex and expensive, sometimes had reliability problems (which sometimes caused more expenses in repair), have often been less fuel-efficient than their manual counterparts and their shift time was slower than a manual making them uncompetitive for racing.

 Transmission Info - JeepForum.com Community Jeep Wiki
The simplest transmissions, often called gearboxes to reflect their simplicity (although complex systems are also called gearboxes on occasion), provide gear reduction (or, more rarely, an increase in speed), sometimes in conjunction with a right-angle change in direction of the shaft.
In the past, automatic transmissions of this type have had a number of problems; they were complex and expensive, sometimes had reliability problems (which sometimes caused more expenses in repair), have often been less fuel-efficient than their manual counterparts and their shift time was slower than a manual making them uncompetitive for racing.
The continuously variable transmission allows the relationship between the speed of the engine and the speed of the wheels to be varied constantly.

 Transmission (mechanics) information - Search.com
In mechanics, a transmission or gearbox is the gear and/or hydraulic system that transmits mechanical power from a prime mover (which can be an engine or electric motor), to some form of useful output device.
Manual transmissions come in two basic types: a simple unsynchronized system where gears are spinning freely and must be synchronized by the operator to avoid noisy and damaging "gear clash", and synchronized systems that will automatically "mesh" while changing gears.
The continuously variable transmission allows the relationship between the speed of the engine and the speed of the wheels to be varied constantly.

Manual transmissions come in two basic types: a simple unsynchronized system where gears are spinning freely and must be synchronized by the operator to avoid noisy and damaging "gear clash", and synchronized systems that will automatically "mesh" while changing gears.
The mechanical systems described above only allow a few different gear ratios to be selected, but there does exist a type of transmission that essentially has an infinite number of ratios available.

 Edmonton Transmission - Welcome
In most automobiles, transmissions are kept in an iron case but there are those that are cased in aluminum.

 Welcome to JimsAutoTransmission.com:::::Since 1977, Serving Transmission & Auto Repair:::::::::::::::::::::::
In mechanics, a transmission or gearbox is the
mechanical advantage (i.e increase in torque) to allow higher forces to be generated.
drag racing, the automatic transmission allows the car to be stopped with the engine at a high rpm (the "stall speed") to allow for a very quick launch when the brakes are released; in fact, a common modification is to increase the stall speed of the transmission.

 Artificial Muscle Project: Progress Reports
First, we are developing the mechanics and subsystems necessary for a practical polymer gel based actuator.
The objective of this research is to develop a lumped parameter model of a polymer gel based actuator which is simple enough to be implemented in the real-time control system, yet thermodynamically correct to describe correct inter-domain energy coupling behavior.
Finding a mechanism to determine the moment the gel-strip made contact with its surrounding fluid, in order to activate a force vs. time plot for the fiber was difficult.

To locate the problem, the mechanic may have to test drive the vehicle or use a variety of testing equipment, such as on-board and hand-held diagnostic computers and compression gauges.
But electronics are now commonplace, so all automotive mechanics must be familiar with at least the basic principles of electronics to recognize when an electronic malfunction may be responsible for a problem.
Employment opportunities for automotive mechanics are expected to increase about as fast as the average for all occupations through the year 2006.

 [No title]
That means thinking about maintenance to avoid problems, but responding to enticing advertisements for a transmission checkup sometimes ends up with a total overhaul -- whether it's needed or not.
Law-abiding transmission repair companies want motorists to be aware of a favorite trick used by unscrupulous operators: You take your car for a checkup and the transmission mechanics take it apart on the premise that it needed to be looked at for possible problems.
Since the transmission is taken apart, the consumer is unable to drive around for comparison shopping, and is stuck with a needless bill.

 User Stories - Delphi Cuts Transmission Modeling Time by 50% with Simulink® and SimDriveline™
Delphi had previously developed a Simulink model of a four-speed transmission that worked well but could not easily be adapted to transmissions with more gears or to diverse mechanical architectures.
Initially, the team used Simulink to develop a model of a four-speed transmission based on complex boundary conditions and state equations that govern the physics of the transmission.
Delphi is also developing more transmission plant models with SimDriveline to evaluate control system trade-offs and the reuse of control strategies for different transmission architectures.
