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

The Rover 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 Rover 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 Rover 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 Rover automatic gearbox transmission, although built to last will eventually wear down due to damage caused by heat and friction. If, when driving the Rover 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 Rover automatic gearbox transmission.

Rover trivia

  • The MGF is what is known as a part bin special, which isn't as bad as it sounds. It means that the MGF uses elements and (actual) parts from older cars. The vented front discs are the same as the Maestro and Montego.
  • Corporate shenanigans changed the company a lot by the 70s, and Rover was owned by British Leyland.
  • MG Motor, the current face of what used to be Rover, launched a supermini called the MG3 in 2013. The car catapulted the company back into the highlight as the brand became the UK's fastest-growing car manufacturer.
  • Rover worked with the BRM F1 team to make the aptly named Rover-BRM. It took a lap of honour in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1963 as the first gas-driven prototype sports car.
  • The iconic logo of Rover is a Viking longship. Currently, the rights to using that logo are in the hands of the Jaguar Land Rover group.
