The Honda Aerodeck Gearbox

The modern gearbox is by far, the most complicated mechanical component in today’s automobile. Newer gearboxes contain mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, electrical systems and computer controls, all working together in perfect harmony which goes virtually unnoticed until there is a problem.

On a rear wheel drive car, power flow on a rear wheel drive the gearbox is usually mounted to the back of the engine and is located under the hump in the centre of the floorboard alongside the gas pedal position. A drive shaft connects the rear of the gearbox to the final drive which is located in the rear axle and is used to send power to the rear wheels. Power flow on this system is simple and straight forward going from the engine, through the torque converter, then through the gearbox and drive shaft until it reaches the final drive where it is split and sent to the two rear wheels.

An Aerodeck manual gearbox

manual gearbox like the Aerodeck, also informally known as a ‘manual’, ‘stick shift’, ‘straight shift’, ‘standard shift’, or sometimes ‘5-speed’ is a type of gearbox used in motor vehicle applications. It generally uses a driver-operated clutch, operated by a pedal or lever, for regulating torque transfer from the engine to the Aerodeck gearbox, and a gear-shift, either operated by hand.

With heavy driving or even general long term usage your gearbox will not last forever. Should you come across any type of gearbox problems then we are the people to help. Contact us for specialist help our if you need a new, reconditioned or second-hand gearbox.

In many modern passenger Honda Aerodeck cars, gears are selected by manipulating a lever connected to the Gearbox via linkage or cables and mounted on the floor of the automobile. This is called a gear stick, shift stick, gearshift, gear lever, gear selector, or shifter. Moving the lever forward, backward, left, and right into specific positions selects particular gears. An aftermarket modification of this part is known as the installation of a short shifter which can be combined with an aftermarket shift knob or Weighted Gear Knob.

A sample layout of a 5 speed Gearbox marks N for neutral, the position wherein no gears are engaged and the engine is decoupled from the vehicle’s drive wheels. In reality, the entire horizontal line is a neutral position, although the shifter is usually equipped with springs so that it will return to the N position if not moved to another gear. The R marks reverse, the gear position used for moving the vehicle rearward.

Honda Aerodeck Manual Gearbox Gearboxes generally offers better fuel economy than automatic torque converter Gearboxes. Increased fuel economy with a properly operated manual Gearbox vehicle can range from 5% to about 15% depending on driving conditions and style of driving.

How The Automatic Honda Aerodeck Gearbox Works?

By definition, an overdrive has a faster output speed than input speed. It’s a speed increase — the opposite of a reduction. In this automatic gearbox it is engaging the overdrive and accomplishes two things at once. If you read up on how a torque converters works you learned about lockup torque converters. In order to improve efficiency, some cars have a mechanism that locks up the torque converter so that the output of the engine goes straight to the Gearbox.

In this Aerodeck Gearbox, when overdrive is engaged, a shaft that is attached to the housing of the torque converter (which is bolted to the flywheel of the engine) is connected by clutch to the planet carrier. The small sun gear freewheels, and the larger sun gear is held by the overdrive band. Nothing is connected to the turbine; the only input comes from the converter housing. Let’s go back to our chart again, this time with the planet carrier for input, the sun gear fixed and the ring gear for output.

Ratio = 1 / (1 + S/R) = 1 / (1 + 36/72) = 0.67:1 So the output spins once for every two-thirds of a rotation of the engine. If the engine is turning at 2000 rotations per minute (RPM), the output speed is 3000 RPM. This allows cars to drive at freeway speed while the engine speed stays nice and slow.

When the Aerodeck gearbox goes wrong

There are a few words in the language of auto repair that make car owners want to crawl back into bed, and “gearbox” is at the top of the list. There’s something about that mysterious box underneath your car that incites fear. Unfortunately, most repair shops know this, and will take advantage of the situation by reaching deep into your pocket.

Your gearbox is a remarkable contraption. Somehow it can shift your car from gear to gear, knowing how fast you need to go and how quickly you need to get there. What goes on inside is a mystery to most. Unless your thirst for automotive knowledge borders on compulsive, you can leave it a mystery.

Aerodeck Gearbox problems fall into two very similar categories :

  • Won’t go.
  • Won’t go smoothly

Most Aerodeck gearbox problems can’t be fixed by the average do-it-yourself. There are just too many specialized tools and pieces of equipment you’ll need, and buying this expensive gear just to screw up your first three tries at fixing the thing just doesn’t make too much sense. When your Aerodeck gearbox gets tired, you’ll have to buy another and we can supply that need.

Watch for leaks or stains under the car: – If there is a persistent red oil leak that you are sure is coming from your car, you should have your shop check to see if it is coming from your gearbox or possibly from your power steering system (most power steering systems also use gearbox fluid and leaks can appear on the ground in roughly the same areas as gearbox leaks.) If all you see is a few drops on the ground, you may be able to postpone repairs as long as you check your fluid level often (but check with your technician to be sure.) If gearbox fluid levels go down below minimum levels serious gearbox damage can occur (the same advice goes for power steering leaks as well.)

Check fluid for colour and odour: – Most manufacturers require that you check gearbox fluid levels when the vehicle is running and on level ground. Pull the gearbox dipstick out and check the fluid for colour and odour. Volante gearbox fluid is transparent red oil that looks something like cherry cough syrup. If the fluid is cloudy or muddy, or it has a burned odour, you should have it checked by your technician who will most likely advise you to drain your gearbox and refill or gearbox tune-up.

Be sensitive to new noises, vibrations and shift behaviour: – A modern gearbox should shift smoothly and quietly under light acceleration. Heavier acceleration should produce firmer shifts at higher speeds. If shift points are erratic or you hear noises when shifting, you should have it checked out immediately. Whining noises coming from the floorboard are also a cause for concern. If caught early, many problems can be resolved without costly gearbox overhauls. Even if you feel that you can’t afford repairs at this time, you should at least have it checked. The technician may be able to give you some hints on what to do and not do to prolong the gearbox life until you can afford the repair.
