This is interesting stuff for those who have wondered how an automatic transmission works.
It’s not leprechauns, magic or the Grace of God making it work after all!
The animations of the torque converter and the planetary gear sets are pretty cool.
The shifting mechanisms hydraulically operated, controlled by the valve body, which in modern boxes is electronically operated, controlled by a computer module. It’s very cool stuff.
The ZF boxes in the Discovery 3 and 4 and Tange Rover a Sports really does need servicing. Change the oil and filter every 80,000km or so and they go forever.
