Manual Transmission Manual Transmission Introduction As the vehicle’s only source of motive force, the engine must be able to cope with a vast range of operating conditions from start-up to high-speed driving. The transmission plays a major role in ensuring that this will be possible. Suppose that your vehicle was provided with a 1st gear only. [...]
Automatic Transmission Overview When driving a vehicle, the driver operates the steering wheel, the gearshift lever, the accelerator pedal, the clutch pedal, the brake pedal and other similar controllers in response to the condition of the road and to the type of driving which is being performed. In this, the clutch pedal and the gearshift [...]

If any switch or adjusting bolt is fitted to the clutch pedal, adjust the position of it not to contact the clutch pedal. 2. Loosen the locknut on the pushrod. Turn [...]
Fluid Coupling Let’s look briefly at the operation principle of a fluid coupling and consider a situation as shown in the diagram where two fans are positioned facing each other. If fan A is operated to produce a flow of air (or, in other words, to force air to
Manual Transmission Oil Inspection Refer to shop manual for details of the inspection procedure. The following two items are to be inspected: • Fluid level • Fluid condition
Driveshaft Introduction The purpose of the drive shafts is to transfer torque from the differential to the wheels. Accordingly, one end of each shaft is splined to the differential’s pinion-drive gear (or side gear), while the other end is splined to a wheel hub. Note, however,
Drive Shaft Boot Overview A driveshaft boot will deteriorate over time and is, therefore, designated as one of the vehicle’s periodic inspection items. Boots cover the flexible joints in the driveshafts, and the grease used for lubricating the CV joints is packed into these
Differential Oil Inspection Overview This module deals only the differential oil employed in the type of differential which is separated from the transmission case and used with longitudinal-mounted engines and transmissions.
Start Clutch Calibration Overview The procedure allows the PCM/TCM to store a base MAP sensor signal which indicates that it is applying the right amount of pressure to the start clutch – enough for the right amount of creep, but not so much as to stall the engine.
