TransTec Mobile App Offers New Features To Simplify Rebuilding Transmissions

A new and improved version of the TransTec Global Transmission Guide mobile app is now available with a convenient kit interchange identifying specific overhaul kits for transmission applications through the 2014 model year. Additional features of the mobile app include continually updated new product announcements and technical bulletins that facilitate rebuilding automatic transmissions in domestic and import applications.

Originally introduced in 2012, the TransTec Transmission-by-Vehicle app now has more than 9,000 downloads.  Developed for use on Android, iPhone/iPad and Kindle devices, the TransTec Transmission-by-Vehicle app makes it easy to identify transmissions by vehicle make, model, year and engine, the company states. Users can select Acura, for example, to determine that a 2010 RDX with L4 2.3L engine has a five-speed, front wheel drive transmission (box code BT3A).      

TransTec’s Transmission-by-Vehicle mobile app is an extension of its popular printed Transmission Guide, originally published back in 1996 and now in its 11th edition. According to TransTec, the mobile app makes it easy and convenient to find information required to identify transmissions with the growing use of smart phones and tablets. 

“TransTec is all about supporting transmission professionals by making the complicated process of rebuilding transmissions a little easier,” said Patty Richards, senior marketing manager for Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies. “This mobile app is so easy and convenient to use, it has become an indispensable tool.”

The TransTec Transmission-by-Vehicle app can be downloaded for free on the Google Play store (Android devices), Amazon.com (Kindle Fire) and the App Store (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch).

Simplifying AWD Systems

No matter the manufacturer, there is almost always an all-wheel drive (AWD) option for most platforms.

No matter the manufacturer, there is almost always an all-wheel drive (AWD) option for most platforms. Most of these systems are designed to be transparent to the driver.

Many AWD systems came onto the market in the 1990s. Unlike 4x4 truck systems of the day, these systems were always engaged and could not be disengaged by the driver. Many of the early systems used mechanical ways to manage the distribution of power to the four wheels. Most of these systems used viscous differentials and limited slip differentials with special fluids inside. These components were prone to failure and are expensive to manufacture. Also, the performance of these systems could be challenging to control with sensors and actuators. Moreover, these AWD systems could cripple fuel efficiency.
