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 Jeep <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 Jeep <model> manual transmission gearbox is normally attached by bolts to the back of the engine, next to the clutch. The Jeep <model> manual transmission gearbox tends to be more fuel efficient than automatic or continuously variable gearbox transmissions. 

On the other hand, the Jeep <model> automatic transmission uses both a mechanical and a hydraulic system to change the gears in the car automatically. The Jeep <model> automatic transmission gearbox is attached to a torque converter which fixes directly to the engine of the car. The Jeep <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 Jeep <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 Jeep <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 Jeep <model> gearbox transmission. 
 

Jeep trivia

  • In the action film, Furious 7, a customised Jeep dropped out of an aeroplane, along with some of the other classic cars used in the film. Usually, this kind of stunt would use only the chassis of the cars, but for F7, they just dropped the fully built cars from the cargo plane and hoped for the best.
  • There's a whole sport called Jeeping, and it's been running since 1953. It's a trek that usually takes place along the Rubicon Trail in the US, and 'Jeep Jamborees' are now so popular that Jeep even attends the events, often bringing new concept vehicles to show off.
  • Jeeps have been seen on the big screen a lot, especially in war films. However, it's not just war that is responsible for iconic Jeep designs in cinema. Jurassic Park used a '93 Jeep Wrangler Sahara for the vehicles used in the dino-park, and the most iconic scene showed the Jeep outrunning a T-Rex! There's even a car club called the Jurassic Park Motor Pool, where members have to own a Jeep that has been painted to look like it's come straight from the park.
  • Jeep has had eight different owners to date. The current owners of the iconic brand are Fiat-Chrysler, but the name has been owned by recognisable names like Renault and AMC.
  • The Jeep is the only vehicle to have won an American Purple Heart medal. The award was given after a Jeep was the first US presence on the beach at Guadalcanal. The Jeep was only slightly damaged, with some bullet holes in the windscreen, but General Eisenhower called the Jeep one of "the three tools that won the war."
