TCM Adaptation Archives - Transmission Digest
Adapt & Overcome

The TCM is responsible for monitoring and controlling transmission operation through the use of various sensors, solenoids, relays, switches, etc. Computer management provides benefits such as precise shift timing, fault detection and increased fuel economy. But a more remarkable feature is the TCM’s ability to compensate for changes in engine performance, vehicle load, driving patterns and physical wear inside the transmission by adapting its control tactics.
