User Guide To Truck Transmissions

A transmission is a very essential part of any vehicle on the road because it is used when slowing down or speeding up helping the vehicle stay in motion. It permits the gear ratio that exists between the vehicle engine and wheels when shifting speeds. The gears need to be shifted in order to avoid over working the engine and also maintain it running at optimal RPM for performance. Without the transmission, a truck will not shift gears, so it will not go forward or in reverse; it will just sit idle and not move.

There are different types of manual and automatic truck transmissions. All of these transmissions are connected to the vehicle engine by the clutch.? This permits the transmission to be disengaged from the engine when changing gears in the vehicle.

The two main types of truck transmissions are the manual and the automatic. Trucks were originally built with manual transmissions, but as automatic transmission became in demand in vehicle production, truck manufacturers started producing more of these designs in order to make truck driving easier.

In using manual transmissions, the driver of the vehicle must be the one manipulating it. You will also find a clutch pedal beside the brake pedal and a transmission shifter, located on the floor of the truck right in front of the dashboard. To shift the gear, press the clutch while shifting either up or down. In starting the vehicle, it must be placed in first gear, and the gas pedal must be depressed. As the vehicle runs faster that the RPMs climb, the truck shifts to the next gear by pressing clutch in.

You also have to know that a manual transmission consists of a number of gears depending on the size of the engine. In a 4-cylinder engine would likely have 4-or5- different gears that you can shift in or out.?? While a 6- or 8- cylinder engine is most likely to have 6 different gears on your transmission.

While the manual transmission vehicle has a clutch, the automatic transmission only has the brake and gas pedals without the clutch. In most trucks the transmission shifter can be located on the steering column. In other trucks, the shifter can be found on floor, like the manual transmission shifter.? You will also observe that the automatic transmission only have park, drive, reverse, second and third gears. It is easy and very simple in driving using automatic transmission. All you have to do is simply pressing the brake pedal and move the shifter into the correct gear and begin driving. The vehicle shifts gears on its own while you drive.

In addition, large or heavy trucks have three types of transmissions- range, splitter and the range-splitter. The range has a high-low gear split which allows reuse of the same gear shift positions for gears in low and high mode. On the other hand, in the splitter transmission, the gears are divided into two sections so that each position of the gear shift is used for the high and low gears. Lastly, the range-splitter transmission is a collaboration of the range and splitter transmissions set ups permitting greater gear positions and selections.
