How Does a Diesel Transmission Work?

There really is not too much of a difference between a transmission on a standard gas vehicle and diesel car or truck. The biggest difference between the two types of transmissions is going to be the torque converter because of the different engine speeds and torque created by the two types of motors.

Unfortunately, that is where the problems begin. If you have a diesel-powered light truck you are probably interested in increased power and performance provided by a diesel power plant. The increased strain from heavy-duty hauling and or towing is often too much for a “stock” transmission attached to the diesel engine on a real work truck, leading to early failure and costly repairs.

We can help you realize the performance expectations of your truck by building your diesel transmission to meet the needs of the loads you put on your vehicle. From the torque converter clear down to internal springs we will make sure you have the right transmission.
