How to Replace Transmission Range Sensor

How to Replace Transmission Range Sensor

The transmission range sensor is a computer control system component that determines the position of the gear changer in your vehicle. The powertrain control module receives data from the range sensor and uses it to determine which gears to enable or inhibit. Stated differently, the range sensor makes sure your car always understands the gear […]

Understanding Transmission Cooler

Understanding Transmission Cooler

Most cars have some form of radiator-mounted transmission cooler that aids in providing sufficient cooling for everyday drive and keeps the transmission from overheating. To be extra safe or in specific situations, many vehicle owners will think about installing an auxiliary transmission cooler (also known as a transmission oil cooler). Similar to your engine, your […]

Understanding powertrain warranty

Powertrain warranty

Many car owners are unsure of the scope of a new car’s powertrain warranty. Your car’s engine, transmission, and drivetrain all fall under the category of the powertrain, so for around five years or 60,000 miles, you could expect that a warranty will cover the cost of maintaining or replacing these components. If you are […]

Understanding a Lever system

Lever example 1

A lever is a basic device that consists of a beam or rigid rod pivoting at a fixed hinge, or fulcrum. It is used to apply force to a load and typically offers a mechanical advantage. A stiff body that can rotate about a point on itself is called a lever. The three types of […]

Trolleys come in a variety of sizes and shapes. One can be found in a wide variety of locations, including supermarkets, airports, warehouses, and factories. They work well for moving a range of items swiftly, easily, and safely from one location to another. In this article, the answers to the following questions will be discussed: […]

Understanding conveyor system

understanding conveyor system

A conveyor system is a type of mechanical handling equipment that transports things from one place to another is a conveyor system. Conveyors are particularly helpful in situations when large or bulky materials need to be transported. The systems’ ability to convey a wide range of products quickly and effectively makes them particularly well-liked in […]

Understanding flat belt pulley

flat drive belt system

In transmission systems, flat belt pulleys are suitable. Flat belts power these, which run at high speeds and are utilized in low-power applications such as textiles, papermaking, computer printers, and conveyors. The flat belt is less expensive than the serpentine belt pulley’s belt. Flat belts do not require a grooved flat belt pulley because they […]

Different types of couplings

Types of couplings

A coupling is a device that connects two shafts for the transmission of power. According to the alignment accuracy and torque required, couplings are rigid or flexible. The shaft coupling is a mechanical component that transmits power by connecting two spinning shafts, such as the driving shaft and the driven shaft. It’s found in motors, […]

Different types of Chain Drive

Chain Drive types

Chain drives are perfect for small center distances and can be used up to 3 meters in most circumstances, but up to 8 meters in extreme cases. Chain drives may transmit up to 100 kW of power and have a peripheral velocity of up to 15 m/s. It’s possible to have an 8:1 velocity ratio. […]

Understanding Servo Motor

Servo motor

A servo motor is a type of motor that has a high degree of precision in rotation. Servo motors often have a control circuit that provides feedback on the current position of the motor shaft; this feedback allows them to rotate with great precision. A servo motor is used when you wish to spin an […]
