Manual transmissions have a driver-operated clutch and a movable gear stick. Think sport cars or big trucks with a dozen gears. Most vehicles’ manual transmissions allow the driver to select any gear any time, but some, such as those mounted on motorcycles and some racing cars, only allow the driver to select the next-higher or next-lower gear. This transmission is often called a sequential manual transmission. Where you can only go from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd or 1st again. You cannot go from 1st to 3rd in a sequential transmission.
Here is how a manual transmission works. The flywheel of a manual transmission is attached to the engine and the clutch disk is in between the pressure plate and flywheel. While driving, the clutch disk spins with the flywheel. As the clutch pedal is depressed, the throw out bearing is pushed in, making the pressure plate stop applying pressure to the clutch disk. This makes it stop receiving engine power so the gear can be shifted without damaging the transmission. When the clutch pedal is released, the clutch disk is re-engaged and to receiving power from the engine again.
Manual transmissions are characterized by gear ratios, selectable by locking selected gear pairs to the shaft inside the transmission. Conversely, most automatic transmissions have epicyclic (planetary) gearing controlled by brake bands and/or clutch packs to select gear ratio. Automatic transmissions allowing the driver to manually select the current gear are called Manumatics. A manual-style transmission operated by computer is called an automated transmission rather than an automatic.
Contemporary automobile manual transmissions typically used four to six forward gears and one reverse gear, although automobile manual transmissions have been built with as few as two and as many as eight gears. Heavy trucks and other heavy equipment usually have at least 9 gears so the transmission can offer both a wide range of gears and close gear ratios to keep the engine running in the power band. Heavy vehicle transmissions have dozens of gears, but many are duplicates, introduced as an accident of combining gear sets, or introduced to simplify shifting. Some are referred to by the number of forward gears they offer (e.g., 5-speed) distinguishing them between automatic or other available manual transmissions. Similarly, a 5-speed automatic transmission is referred to as a “5-speed automatic.”
