What Is a Torque Converter?

An automatic transmission is made up of many sophisticated internal components. From the planetary gearsets to the torque converter, there are several essential parts that your automatic transmission requires in order to function properly. One of the most important parts of an automatic transmission is the torque converter. Unlike a manual transmission, which has a driver-operated clutch, an automatic transmission relies on the torque convertor to absorb excess energy that is created by the engine. When the car comes to a stop, the torque converter uses the physics of a centrifuge to divert engine power away from the wheels. Once the driver accelerates, the torque converter sends the engine power back to the wheels. When you bring your transmission in to Allied Transmission for repairs, our friendly technicians will be happy to answer your questions. We are proud to provide the San Jose area with highly rated transmission repair services.
