Standard Transmission

Standard / manual transmissions have a driver operated clutch and a movable gear shifter stick. Most automobile standard / manual transmissions allow the driver to select any forward gear ratio at any time.

The way a manual transmission works is that the flywheel is attached to the engine, the clutch disk is in between the pressure plate and the flywheel. When running, the clutch disk spins with the flywheel. As the clutch pedal is depressed, the throw out bearing is pushed in, which makes the pressure plate stop applying pressure to the clutch disk. This makes it stop receiving power from the engine so that the gear can be shifted without damaging the transmission. When the clutch pedal is released, the clutch disk is allowed to start receiving power from the engine.

Manual transmissions are characterized by gear ratios that are selectable by locking selected gear pairs to the output shaft inside the transmission. Automobile manual transmissions typically use four to six forward gears and one reverse gear.
