Hi, lot have been spoke on automatic, but for me something not clear yet.
My car, at R is having some clutch problems. It seems like in a manual, you try to release clutch pedal too fast. I see no F indicator.
So as far as I read, clutch in automatics are similar to motorcycles, wet disks, but in this case, I think for each gear, is that true?
I also understood, that the copper pistons inside the automatic gearbox are the clutch actuators. and they are hydraulic, so low oil level causes clutch problems....
Is this the way it works?
About this Gear Actuator, the only thing I see from picture, and I might be wrong, is that it has a electronic sensor but maybe just for the parking position.... because the cable is going to be driven direct to aut. gerabox. but if this switch fail, your car will see a P durign D and maybe this causes the problem....
