Car Gearbox Repairs
Car Gearbox Repairs in Kettering - Headlands Garage
This section of the car is used to generate and transmit the power that turns the wheels and allows the car to move. It also controls how fast the wheels rotate, and how much force they turn with.
In the engine, the valves control the flow of fuel and air. This in turn controls the explosions which move the pistons up and down. The up-and-down movement will in turn rotate the crankshaft, and it is this rotation that is transmitted through the clutch to the gearbox.
The movement of the valves is controlled by the camshaft, a series of rotating plates that force the valves to move up and down. At the end of the camshaft is a cog that attaches to the timing belt. The timing belt, powered by the movement of a similar cog at the end of the crankshaft, ensures all these parts move in sync.
