Let us tell you, your drive experience is directly related to a gearbox, so here we are going to tell you how many types of gearboxes are there and how it works.
- Manual Gearbox
The manual gearbox is more installed in those cars, which are cheap vehicles in terms of price. In this, the driver himself changes the gear with the help of a gear stick, while in this mode the driver uses the clutch pedal to change the gear.

In an automatic gearbox, hydraulic fluid coupling and torque converter are used instead of the clutch to change gears.

The gear ratio depends on the engine speed and rpm.
