In an automatic gearbox you will find
- An ingenious planetary gear set
- A set of bands to lock parts of a gear set
- A set of three wet-plates clutches to lock other parts of the gear set
- An incredibly odd hydraulic system that controls the clutches and bands
- A large gear pump to move gearbox fluid around
In a manual gearbox you will find
- A lay shaft
- A collar

Just like that of a manual gearbox, the automatic gearbox’s primary job is to allow the engine to operate in its narrow range of speeds while providing a wide range of output speeds.
Without a gearbox, cars would be limited to one gear ratio, and that ratio would have to be selected to allow the car to travel at the desired top speed. If you wanted a top speed of 80 mph, then the gear ratio would be similar to third gear in most manual gearbox cars.
You’ve probably never tried driving a manual gearbox car using only third gear. If you did, you’d quickly find out that you had almost no acceleration when starting out, and at high speeds, the engine would be screaming along near the red-line. A car like this would wear out very quickly and would be nearly undriveable.
The key difference between a manual and an automatic gearbox is that the manual gearbox locks and unlocks different sets of gears to the output shaft to achieve the various gear ratios, while in an automatic gearbox; the same set of gears produces all of the different gear ratios. The planetary gear set is the device that makes this possible in an automatic gearbox.

Alfa Romeo Brera Gearboxes
The Alfa Romeo Brera can now move with smoothness to match its amazing flowing styling with the Alfa Romeo coupe now available with the all-new Alfa Romeo Q-Tronic automatic gearbox.
Alfa Romeo has traditionally believed that sports cars could only have a manual gearbox as this was the only way that they could fully deliver their sporting prowess, therefore, it has taken a self-shifting gearbox of exceptional ability to change minds in favour of an automatic. Thus the Q-Tronic gearbox minimizes performance loss, indeed, at 240 kmh; the automatic Brera V6 has the same top speed as its manual counterpart. The ‘Sport’ mode enables automatic shifting with real aggression and decisiveness and, when the driver calls for it, there is full manual override available with Tiptronic style gear selection. This new gearbox really enables the driver of the Brera 3.2 V6 to have the maximum driving excitement, plus the convenience of a self-shifting gearbox.
Supplied by Asien, but thoroughly adapted to its application in the Alfa Romeo Brera, the Q-Tronic gearbox is an all-new design and is available the range-topping 3.2 litre JTS V6 engine. It enables the Brera to be driven in automatic mode with all the functions typical of an automatic transmission (parking, reverse, neutral and drive) or in sequential mode by simply moving the gear selector in a Tiptronic-style mode.
The ‘Q-Tronic’ name continues the Alfa Romeo tradition of using the letter ‘Q’ to indicate the most sophisticated technology developed by the company: from the famous Quadrifoglio to the ‘Q4’ of the permanent four wheel drive. The term Tronic, on the other hand, adds that the system is controlled by a smart electronic control unit that governs optimum gear shifts.
he automatic transmission ensures more effective use of engine performance and greater comfort, particularly around town. The Q-Tronic backs these advantages with very comfortable gear shifts. The innovative system also allows those who do not wish to renounce the pleasure of a sporty drive to use the system in sequential manner in the same way as a gearbox with fixed ratios controlled in sequence: when the gearbox is pushed up (‘+’ sign), the gearbox shifts to the next gear up while when it is pushed down (‘-‘ sign), the gearbox shifts down a gear. In this mode too, the system ensures the driver is able to maintain a sporty drive because, unlike sequential gearboxes offered by rival cars, the Q-Tronic does not force gear shifts at high engine speeds and the change may be made when the driver wishes.
A gearbox has become more reliable these days, but still as in all gearboxes it’s the most-easiest-to-break and very-expensive-to-fix part of the vehicle. If heavily abused, the gearbox can be easily destroyed within just half an hour. Any gearbox is very sensitive to the gearbox fluid quality and condition. Improper fluid type can damage the gearbox. When buying a used car, a gearbox is one of the most important parts to check.
When buying a used car, the gearbox is one of the most important parts to check. We strongly recommend having a used car inspected by a mechanic before buying it, it will well worth it. When buying a used car first checks the used car history records; it may save you some time and money. If the used car history report shows that the car you want to buy was used as a rental vehicle or has been involved in an accident, there is no point to even look at it. Ask the previous owner or salesperson if any repair has been done to the gearbox. If the gearbox is already rebuilt, try to avoid buying such a car. It’s not like all rebuilt gearbox will have problems – some of them work even better than before. The problem is that not all gearbox shops can do equally the same high-quality job. And since there is no way to verify if it was rebuilt properly or not, it’s better not to take chances. Another thing to be concern about, ask if the car you are looking for was used for towing a trailer. Gearboxes wear out quicker in many cars that were used for towing a trailer.
