Automatic Driving With Torque Converters-running man 20130908

Automobiles Torque converters were made out of a desire for convenience during driving. The wonderful function of a converter is to allow your vehicle to change gears with a clutch and a 3-Speed gear box to a completely effortless fully automatic transmission. There are three important torque converter parts. Imagine two fans that are facing one another, one that is plugged in (impeller) and one that is not plugged in (turbine). When the impeller fan is plugged in it begins to blow air at the turbine fan which now begins to rotate. Now lets say you stop the rotation of the turbine fan with your hands for a moment, now if you release the fan blade it will again begin to rotate. Over time, the speed of the (turbine fan) will catch up to almost the same RPM as the driving fan (impeller). A torque converter works much the same way, but rather than using air as our fluid which would be impractical as well as ineffectual we will use non-compressible ATF (automatic transmission fluid). The stator is sandwiched between the impeller and the turbine. The stator is only needed for torque multiplication when the impeller and the turbine are turning at very different speeds, as one might expect that would be from breakaway from a dead stop or accelerating at low road speeds and generous amounts of throttle. Although its not a formal part of classic torque converter design, many automotive converters include a lock-up torque converter clutch to improve cruising power transmission efficiency and reduce heat. The application of the torque converter clutch locks the turbine to the pump, causing all power transmission to be mechanical, thus eliminating losses associated with fluid drive. You can have this as an additional feature of as you have the shop install your torque converter. Transmission fluid is a key element to the automatic transmission process. When youre in a shop for some torque repairs, remember to always have your transmission fluid levels checked. The fluid makes the turbine spin so without it, the converter is pretty much useless. The fluid exits the turbine at the center, moving in a different direction than when it entered. If the fluid were allowed to hit the pump, it would slow the engine down, wasting power. This is why a torque converter has a stator. A non-major but essential converter part is the torque converter clutch. It is an electronic clutch that will engage the engine and drivetrain 100%. Although the torque converter clutch is not part of the engine, it can make the car feel like the engine has a problem. The torque converter clutch is also known as a lock up converter. The lockup clutch has many purposes and is part of the transmission. A regular converter in an automatic transmission is made to slip at idle so that the car doesnt move. As the accelerator is pressed the RPMs raise and the torque converter will start to lockup or engage. When the converter engages the car will move. Even though the torque converter is engaged it never completely engages the way a manual transmission car clutch will. It will always slip a little, which is not very efficient. This is why a manual transmission car gets better gas mileage and has more power than an automatic transmission car. High performance should be expected of a converter is the clutch is also well kept. Ameritorque is a torque converter vendor that provides torque converter installation, torque rebuild, and torque repair for all your converter needs. They are also torque remanufacturers that rebuild old converters into functional ones.
