The Clutch & Transmission components transfer the power from the engine to the wheels of your car. The clutch is responsible for a smooth integration of power from a moving engine to a still transmission. The transmission then transfers this incoming power through its gears and to the wheels directly. The are 2 types of transmissions. Manual transmission where the driver selects the gear of choice through a gear shifter. Automatic transmission where the vehicle decides what gear and when to apply it by placing the range selector in P (park), R (reverse), D (drive)
Clutch: The Clutch is needed because the engine is always turning but not the wheels. The clutch allows this smooth integration to occur by using a clutch plate/discs and flywheel. Giving the driver control of demand in a manual transmission. There are clutches as well in automatic transmissions.
Trans: To get the best gas mileage out of your vehicle, an automatic transmission is best. Using planetary gears to transfer engine torque more efficiently than a manual. The manual locks different sets of gears to achieve a different set of gear ratios while an automatic can achieve the same gear ratios with one set of gears.
