If you’re in need of a
transmission rebuild near San Jose, you can benefit from learning a little bit about how transmission torque
converters work. An automatic transmission repair or transmission rebuild
involves removing and replacing elements of the transmission, including
the transmission torque converter. Here is a look at how torque converters work.
The Purpose of a Torque Converter
Cars that operate using automatic transmission use a torque converter to
allow the engine to turn while the wheels and gears are coming to a stop.
If your car is in need of an automatic transmission rebuild or automatic
transmission repair, it’s possible that the elements of your torque
converter are not operating properly. A torque converter allows the car’s
engine to spin independently of the transmission, like a fluid coupling.
Cars that operate using a manual transmission use a clutch to disconnect
the engine from the transmission. You might require manual transmission
repair, clutch repair, or transmission maintenance if your clutch is not
allowing the engine to disconnect.
A Torque Converter’s Parts
A torque converter consists of four very important elements: the pump,
turbine, stator, and transmission fluid. Regular transmission maintenance
is necessary to keep all of these elements in good working order. If any
one of these parts is damaged or faulty, you will need to visit a transmission
shop for transmission work or car transmission repair. The parts of the
torque converter are contained in housing that is bolted to the engine’s
flywheel, so the converter turns at the same speed as the engine.
