Torque Converter

What is a torque converter?

Through the use of a mechanical chain, a torque converter transforms the engine's rotational force into power for the vehicle's driven wheels. A torque converter is essentially a friction device with hydraulic control. It increases engine torque and makes it possible to brake safely while also enabling gearless stopping of the vehicle.

Lock-up torque converters are the norm in contemporary automobiles. Older automobiles feature torque converters that are non-locking.

Lock-Up
You don't have to worry about the torque converter locking up when you transfer gears since a lock-up torque converter includes an integrated locking clutch mechanism.

The torque converter will lock in a direct link between the input and output shafts once the gearbox detects a certain speed or engine RPM for improved efficiency.

Non-Lock-Up
We essentially accepted the energy loss that happened during the transfer of power from the engine to the transmission prior to the development of lock-up clutches. When the clutch is released, the impeller and turbine continue to revolve at different speeds until they reach equilibrium. energy loss as a result.
