What Transmission is in My Truck?
If you’re like most truck owners, then you’ve heard of the “transmission” before, perhaps from your mechanic while she performs your annual maintenance. But most truck drivers don’t know much more about their transmission other than the fact that it is essential for their truck’s proper operation. That lack of knowledge can become quite an issue if your truck shows symptoms of a problem that cannot be traced to any other source.
At that point, you might begin to suspect that your truck’s transmission is facing some sort of problem. But before you can get that problem diagnosed, you’ll need to know about what kind of transmission is installed in your truck. This guide will take you through the process of figuring that out, as well as the different types of transmissions on the market today. In all, this guide should provide you with a more firm understanding of your transmission’s essential function within your truck.
