The root cause is the critter I’m always on the prowl for, and I will use any weapon I can find to bag that beast.

Manual-Transmission Theory: Back to Basics

On automatic transmissions, engine-related computer problems can affect transmission operation. Computer-controlled vehicles have very complex electronic circuits and multiple computers, all of which need to work together. That being the case, we will start with the basics of rear-wheel-drive manual-transmission function and proceed to more-complex diagnostic issues with transfer cases and front-wheel-drive manual transmissions in the next series of articles.

Understanding the Tremec 3650 5-Speed Transmission

The T5 was one of the most widely used transmissions in history. Ford replaced it for the Mustang with the T45, which was used in the Pony cars until 1991.

Figure 1 shows other vehicles in which the 3650 is used.
