Difference between Engine and Transmission

We “Global Automotive Transmission” provide all automatic and manual transmission repair service across various suburbs of Sydney. We have successfully served our service to the various suburbs like Camden, Liverpool, Penrith, Blacktown, Parramatta, Sutherland and Castle Hill.

Engines and transmissions are mechanical systems typically found in bigger machines. Each has its own uses and functions which this article aims to enumerate and explain.

An engine, also referred to as a motor, is a machine that is designed to transform one form of energy into mechanical energy. A heat engine burns fuel to be able to produce heat, which in turn, turned into force. Motors powered by electricity use electrical energy to produce mechanical motion. Myosins (i.e. molecular motors) found in muscles produce force to enable motion through the help of chemical energy.

An engine can be categorized using two criteria: the form of energy it can use to produce motion and the kind of motion it produces. These are heat engines, electric motors, physically powered motors, and hydraulic motors.

Heat engines use heat energy and chemical energy to produce mechanical energy. Common examples of heat engines are found in cars, rockets, nuclear submarines, and wristwatches. Electric motors (e.g. dynamo, generators) harness electrical energy to produce mechanical energy. These are household appliances, machine tools, and industrial fans to name a few. Physically powered engines run on potential or kinetic energy which includes pneumatic motors, elastic bands, and clockwork motors. A hydraulic motor is another kind of engine that gets its power from pressurized fluid. Hydraulic motors are usually used to produce motion and move heavy loads.

transmission, usually referred to as a gearbox, is a mechanism found in a power transmission system. In mechanics, a transmission is a machine that controls the application of the power produced by mechanical engines. It utilizes various gears and gear trains to distribute torque and speed conversions coming from a rotating power source to another device.

The most common application of transmission systems is in motor vehicles. This is where the transmission adapts the power produced by the internal combustion engine to the drive wheels. The transmission works to reduce higher engine speeds to match the slower wheel speeds. This action results in an increased torque. Pedal bicycles also make use of simpler transmission systems where varying rotational speeds and torques are adapted.

A typical transmission system is composed of a number of gears (i.e. gear ratios) with the ability to switch between these gears as speed increases or decreases. Switching gears may be done either manually or automatically. Forward and reverse control may also be incorporated, particularly in most motorized vehicles.

In automobiles, the transmission is usually connected to the engine crankshaft through a flywheel or fluid or clutch coupling. Output from the transmission transfers through the driveshaft to the differentials which, in turn, drive the wheels. In addition to gear reduction, a differential’s main function is to allow the wheels at both ends of an axle to spin at varying speeds while it changes the direction of the rotation.

Engine vs Transmission

So what’s the difference between an engine and a transmission? In mechanics, an engine is a machine specifically designed to transform one kind of energy into mechanical energy. In motor vehicles, a transmission system is a machine that controls the distribution of power generated by its internal combustion engine.

An engine is categorized by the energy it uses and the kind of motion it produces. Heat engines, electric motors, physically powered motors, and hydraulic motors are the different categories in current use. A transmission system is categorized by the process in which gear switching is achieved, either be manual or automatic.

6 Things that can Damage your Transmission

Your Car’s Transmission Is a Complex System

While your transmission is tough, it can still be damaged.

It can be hard to break bad habits. Especially bad driving habits that we have been doing for a long time. Being aware of the things that can damage your car help you avoid destroying your transmission and avoid costly repairs down the road.

6 Things that can Damage your Transmission

These are the top 6 mistakes drivers make that can ruin your transmission.

Shifting When Not Stopped

In automatic transmission cars, it is best to be fully stopped before shifting into drive or reverse.

If you shift into drive or reverse when your car is not completed stopped this can quickly destroy your transmission. It is always best to be fully stopped before shifting into drive or reverse in cars with automatic transmission.

In an automatic transmission car, it is not like shifting gears in a manual transmission vehicle, where the clutch can disengage, an automatic transmission is a rigid linear operation and the teeth inside the gears can grind if you force your transmission to change gears while moving. Not only can this damage your transmission but it can also damage your suspension and driveshaft as well.

Towing Beyond Your Car’s Ability

If your car isn’t built for towing – don’t do it.

It’s that simple if your car isn’t meant to haul a heavy load, then don’t. If your car has some hauling capability then be sure to not exceed the suggested weight limits. Towing puts a huge strain on your transmission, which can cause it to overheat.

Running Low on Transmission Fluid

Low transmission fluid is a guaranteed way to damage your transmission.

If you are low on transmission fluid the gears in your transmission will not be lubricated, causing them to grind together, overheat and eventually fail. You need to keep your transmission fluid at the optimal levels in order to keep your transmission working smoothly. If your fluid levels are low, chances are you have a leak.

Using The Wrong Transmission Fluid

Not all transmission fluid is created equal.

Your transmission requires a certain type of transmission fluid to run. Different types of transmission fluid have different levels of viscosity and different mixes of additives and are formulated for different car’s transmissions. Using the wrong fluid for your transmission can result in your transmission not getting the right lubrication or cooling properties that it requires. Your owner’s manual or the transmissions experts at Global Automotive Transmissions  can help you determine which transmission fluid is right for your car.

Not Servicing Your Transmission

Your transmission needs to be tuned.

If you don’t service your transmission on regular schedule dirt and contaminants can build up and cause your transmission to develop problems over time. Your transmissions performance will decrease and the parts inside will wear out. If you ignore regular maintenance for your transmission long enough it will eventually fail outright.

Ignoring Transmission Problems

Minor problems can quickly escalate into major problems.

Most catastrophic problems are avoidable – there are warning signs along the way. Hearing strange noises? Car shaking, shuddering, or stalling? Red puddles on the driveway? These are all early warning signs that something might be wrong with your transmission. It is best to bring your car to a certified transmission expert sooner rather later when these warning signs occur rather than waiting until the problem gets worse – and more expensive to repair.
