How Semi-Automatic Gearbox Works?

1 minuteread


Semi-Automatic Gearbox:

In a semi-automatic gearbox, the clutch continues to be an element of the transmission (but not the clutch pedal), while a computer maintains the gear changes automatically.



How the semi-automatic gearbox works in practice is extremely different from car to car. In some cars, you are doing not do anything in any respect when changing gears and may let the engine and electronics do the work for you.

In others, you would like to “tell” the engine once you want to ready or down. You push the shifter within the direction you would like, so the electronics shift gears for you. the particular change is formed in an exceedingly so-called “actuator”.

Finally, other cars offer you the choice to decide on for yourself whether you would like to be completely hands-free or use the gear stick for gear changes.

From a financial point of view, buying a car with a semi-automatic transmission is advantageous because it requires less maintenance within the long term. If something breaks within the fully automatic gearbox, the mechanic should go all the way into the gearbox to repair it and this may be expensive. With the semi-automatic gearboxes, you have got a clutch, which is that the part most exposed to wear, instead of the gearbox, and also the clutch is somewhat cheaper to repair than the gearbox is.

The cars most frequently equipped with semi-automatic gearboxes are Peugeot, Citroën, Volkswagen, Audi, Škoda, and Seat. Of course, each brand can have its way of designing the gearbox, but these are the standard car brands that use the semi-automatic system.
