The Torque Converter Explained

Back in the day, if you wanted to learn how something worked, you actually had to either go to school for it, dig up a bunch of books somewhere, or consult with someone who had more experience who could dissect the issue for you and get you pointed in the right direction to tackle the issue or question. Luckily, with the great tool that is the Internet, you can learn how to do just about anything from the comfort of your own home or the convenience of a variety of different devices, whichever one you prefer. This time, it just so happens that we’re learning a little bit about the fundamentals of how a torque converter works.

In the short flick, we get the lowdown on the basic fundamentals of torque converter construction as we dive inside of what exactly is happening inside of your automatic transmission so that you can get a better grasp on diagnosing your situation and maybe even learn how to drive a little bit better to elongate the life of your transmission. If you just so happened to be curious about what was all working when you punch the gas and bang through the gears, this video should be plenty of insight for you to get the concept down!

Check out the clip below that’s all about your converter in action and be sure to tell us if you learned anything in this informative demonstration. The graphics here really help to seal the deal so that you can really picture exactly what’s going on with your car’s internals as they all work together in combination with your movements to make for one smooth driving experience. Now, some vehicles may act slightly differently, even with an automatic transmission, but something like this is a good building block to expand off of to learn more new concepts!
