Although both automatic and manual transmissions are popular, many people are not aware of the exact differences between the mechanics of these two transmission systems. While a vehicle that makes use of manual transmission requires the driver to use the clutch in order to disconnect the engine from the transmission, automatic transmissions rely a torque converter. The torque convertor serves the same purpose as the clutch, allowing the engine to spin somewhat independently of the transmission.
