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

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

Toyota trivia

  • They might be one of the biggest and well-known brand names in the world, but Toyota is still very much a family business. Every CEO so far has been a descendant of the original founder.
  • Although Toyota started making its first cars in 1937, these were specifically produced to contribute to Japan's war effort. It wasn't until 1947 that they started producing cars for civilians.
  • Without the US, Toyota very likely wouldn't exist today as we know it. In 1950, the car company was struggling to fight off bankruptcy and only managed to make 300 trucks until the Korean War kicked off. The US then put in an order for 5,000 vehicles, transforming the company and its future.
  • As well as their other records, Toyota is known to consistently break sales records as well. It's not just the Corolla either. They have been so successful some years that they outsold Honda and Nissan combined!
  • The Toyota Prius is just the latest example of why Toyota is widely considered the greenest company in the car industry. Consistent efforts at improving sustainability and eco-awareness led to them getting voted the number one Global Green Brand back in 2015.
