About Gearboxes

The job of the car's transmission system is to transmit the power made in the engine to the wheels of the car and consists of the clutch, gearbox, drive shaft, universal joints, rear axle and wheel. There are two types of gearbox transmission; manual and automatic. 

The Iveco <model> manual transmission gearbox comes into play by enabling the driver to select the right gear for the speed the car is travelling at, ensuring the engine can function as efficiently as possible. In a manual transmission gearbox the driver controls the gears manually by releasing the accelerator pedal whilst pressing the clutch foot pedal and engaging the correct gear for the driving conditions and speed. Then the clutch is released and pressure reapplied on the accelerator. The correct gear is selected by hand, using a gear stick, which operates the gear linkage (a series of levers and rods) enabling the correct gear to be engaged. A driver of a car with a manual gearbox can normally select from between four to six forward gears, one reverse gear and neutral position. The Iveco <model> manual transmission gearbox is normally attached by bolts to the back of the engine, next to the clutch. The Iveco <model> manual transmission gearbox tends to be more fuel efficient than automatic or continuously variable gearbox transmissions. 

On the other hand, the Iveco <model> automatic transmission uses both a mechanical and a hydraulic system to change the gears in the car automatically. The Iveco <model> automatic transmission gearbox is attached to a torque converter which fixes directly to the engine of the car. The Iveco <model> automatic transmission gearbox comes into play when the driver applies or releases pressure on the accelerator, by automatically selecting and changing the gears for the driver. The Iveco <model> automatic transmission gearbox selects the right gear for the speed the car is travelling at, adjusting the speed of the car accordingly, whilst ensuring the engine can function as efficiently as possible. This all enables the driver to concentrate on driving without needing to manually change the gears. Generally automatic transmissions have 4 gears consisting of drive, first gear, second gear, park, reverse and neutral.  The Iveco <model> automatic transmission gearbox tends to be less fuel efficient than a manual transmission gearbox but offers the driver a smooth ride and the ease of not having to change gears manually. 

The gearbox transmission, although built to last and easy to maintain with proper care and attention, will over time need replacing due to damage caused by heat and friction. In a manual gearbox transmission, careless driving, such as choosing the wrong gear by mistake, can speed up wear and tear and cause damage to the gearbox transmission. If you are experiencing problems when changing gear, it is important to get your car's transmission system looked at by a professional and you may need to replace the Iveco <model> gearbox transmission. 
 

Iveco trivia

  • As winners of the IF Design Award in 2020, Iveco has joined the ranks of some of the most beautiful and practical products in the world. The prestigious award is granted to only the best in designed products, and the Iveco S-Way is the perfect example.
  • Iveco loves a good sponsorship deal. To date, they have sponsored the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, the All Blacks rugby team, and the MotoGP. They even provide the trucks needed to transport Ferraris for F1 races.
  • In 1986, Iveco rolled out its first vehicle with electric propulsion. This was a trial, but it was quickly adopted across their full range of buses, as well as many of their truck models.
  • While Iveco is certainly affiliated with big names like Ford and Jeep, the fact is that Iveco vehicles are uniquely designed, and they share very little of their underpinnings with even their closest partners.
  • There's an ongoing partnership between Iveco, FPT, and Nikola. The goal is to create a mass-produced electric vehicle. As of 2019, the first prototype was rolled out, but production is not expected to start until 2021.
