How A Gearbox Works

Gearboxes - The Basics

What Is A Gearbox?

Generally speaking most car and light commercial gearboxes are referred to as either automatic or manual. An automatic gearbox and a manual gearbox accomplish exactly the same thing, but they do it in totally different ways.


In a vehicle gearbox gears are used to transfer drive from shaft to shaft.

See Our Interactive Gearbox Animation

Gear Ratios

Gear ratios are what allow a car to reach a high rate of speed or climb a steep hill. The gearbox is used to achieve the various gear ratios by transferring drive through sets of different size gears. The action of changing these gears can either be manually operated or automatically by the gearbox. If your gearbox is in need of replacing in Sheffield we can help.

Why Do I Need A Gearbox?

Without a gearbox cars would be limited to one gear. The gearbox gear ratio would have to be predetermined to allow the car to travel at the desired top speed. If you wanted a top speed of 80 mph the gear ratio would be similar to third gear, making it extremely difficult to just move your vehicle from stationary.

Where's My Acceleration Gone?

You would quickly notice virtually no acceleration present and the engine would be at full RPM at 80 mph. Sheffield's vehicles would not last very long without a gearbox. Make sure your vehicles gearbox is maintained by a reputable gearbox company that specialises in gearboxes.

Automatic Gearboxes

Automatic gearboxes use the same set of gears to produce all of the different gear ratio's. The device that makes this possible in an automatic gearbox is called the planetary gear set.

Semi-Automatic Gearboxes

Automatic gearboxes use the same set of gears to produce all of the different gear ratio's. The device that makes this possible in an automatic gearbox is called the planetary gear set.

Manual Gearboxes

A manual gearbox locks and unlocks different sets of gears to the output shaft to achieve the various gear ratios.
