About Gearboxes Transmission Automatic

The job of the car's transmission system is to transmit the power made in the engine to the wheels of the car. An automatic transmission uses both a mechanical and a hydraulic system to change the gears in the car automatically.

The Lotus automatic transmission gearbox is attached to a torque converter which fixes directly to the engine of the car.

The Lotus 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 Lotus automatic transmission gearbox selects the right gear for the speed the car is travelling at, adjusting the speed of the car accordingly, while 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 Lotus 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 Lotus automatic gearbox transmission, although built to last will eventually wear down due to damage caused by heat and friction. If, when driving the Lotus automatic transmission gearbox is not changing gears smoothly; slow at changing gear or will not shift into gear; changes gears sporadically; judders; or produces unusual noises and vibrations, it will need looking at by a professional and you may need to replace the Lotus automatic gearbox transmission.

Lotus trivia

  • The Lotus Elise has been consistently voted as the best all-round sports car in the world, partly due to its lightweight design. It only weighs 1960lbs!
  • Sports cars have low seating, and all Lotus vehicles have seating that is so low that the average driver often has issues with getting in and out. While there are many positives to driving a Lotus, even they recommend a test drive before committing to a purchase.
  • The original Lotus cars were sold as kit cars so that buyers could avoid paying purchase tax. It wasn't until 1970 that Lotus started selling a model that didn't come as a kit...the Elan Plus Two.
  • Elon Musk called the Lotus Esprit S1 one of the main inspirations for the Tesla Cybertruck, and he owns an S1.
  • Although Lotus has always been a smaller company than other makers, they have been approached to help with the designs of some very famous cars from some big names. Some notable examples include the DeLorean DMC-12, the V12 Vanquish, and the Corvette ZR-1.
