There is no gear shift in an automatic transmission car. Once you put the transmission into drive, everything else is automatic. Both the automatic transmission (plus its torque converter) and a manual transmission (with\xAD its clutch) accomplish exactly the same thing, but they do it in totally different ways. It turns out that the way an automatic transmission does it is absolutely amazing!But cars with an aut\xADomatic transmission have no clutch that disconnects the transmission from the engine. Instead, they use an amazing device called a torque converter. It may not look like much, but there are some very interesting things going on inside.The continuously variable transmission (CVT), which was conceptualized more than 500 years ago, is just now beginning to replace traditional automatic transmissions in some automobiles. A car's transmission enables the engine to provide a wide range of output speeds. Without it, you'd be limited to just one gear.
