About Torque Converters
The Jaguar torque converter is a fluid coupling that is bolted to the flywheel of the engine and uses fins to turn at the same speed as the flywheel. Its job is to allow the engine to spin independently of the transmission. The Jaguar torque converter consists of four parts. These are the centrifugal pump, the turbine, the stator and transmission fluid. The turbine is the part nearest to the flywheel. The stator is next to this and controls the transmission fluid to retain as much as possible. The pump is positioned on the other side of the stator. As the pump spins, the transmission fluid inside the Jaguar torque converter is forced to the outside of the converter. This fluid creates a vacuum and travels through the turbine which causes the transmission to rotate and moves the vehicle.
Signs that the Jaguar torque converter is damaged can include a clicking noise when the transmission is engaged, which is caused by a damaged gear. You may also have issues in moving from one gear to the other. The vehicle may also jump in to gear, which can be caused by a poor flow of transmission fluid.
- The first-ever XK120 rolled off the production line and was delivered immediately to Clark Gable, who had preordered it well in advance. The XK120 came with a removable windscreen and could hit a solid 120mph..
- Before a Jaguar is painted, they are brushed with an ionized emu feather. That's because these feathers are very good at holding an electrostatic charge, and that means they are great at getting rid of any dust that might ruin the finished Jaguar look.
- The most expensive car in Jaguar's history is the XJ220. It cost a rather intimidating £413,000 in 1991 and is also one of the fastest cars they've ever built, capable of getting up to 217mph.
- Transporting a load of Jaguars isn't easy. When being loaded onto trains, every car is driven by a driver that isn't wearing a seatbelt. Those drivers aren't allowed to wear belts, and they even have to get rid of any metal eyelets on their shoes. This is all to prevent the possibility of scratches, and what's more, the drivers aren't even allowed to touch the outside of the cars!
- The 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most gruelling and famous race events in the world, has been won by Jaguar an astonishing seven times. Their first victory was back in 1951.
