The Nissan Sentra is practically a legend. It has been made steadily on American soil since 1982.

Called multiple compound planetary gears, with multi-clutch plates, clutch packs and in some cases 1 band and some cases 2 bands. These are automatic transmissions. Some are automatic overdrive transmissions, and some have lock up torque converters. All are transaxles.
A transaxle is a drive unit with the transmission and rear differential together in the same housing, making it lighter in weight and smaller in size, thus fitting in a smaller area, and adding to the efficiency of the car by weighing less. Over 95 percent of front wheel drive cars use the transverse system I’m referring to.
Transverse mounting systems are not new. It is for front wheel drive only cars, and all wheel drive cars where the transmission is mounted up front, east to west, or sideways under the hood. This is opposed to the front engine/rear wheel drive arrangements larger vehicles use. Like trucks and large SUV type vehicles. Like the Pathfinder.
The early transaxles were almost entirely hydraulic in operation. Over the years, Nissan transmissions have become more advanced and now use computers to command operation. Using sensors and input components all over the car, and electrical solenoids and pressure motors inside the transmission to command the perfect shift in real time for any driving condition.
Most units have a feature called ”lock up”, which in essence is another forward speed. Lock up is an electronically activated clutch plate inside the torque converter, eliminating any slippage and increasing fuel mileage. Most cars have lock up. Make sure you get a rebuilt torque converter with your rebuilt transmission. Every automatic transmission we sell has a rebuilt torque converter. Lock up, or not.
