Where is the transmission in a rear engine car?
It’s usually a bit lower than the engine, partly underneath it, and mounted to one side or the other, level with the oil pan. If your vehicle is rear-wheel drive, the transmission will be behind the engine, usually under the dashboard area.
How do rear engine cars get air?
Air goes through the radiator and that is about it, on most cars. On the Carrera, there are two radiators behind the front wheels, used to cool the liquid used for cooling the engine. The fan located on the rear lid is used more to extract heat at low speeds or after parking the car.
How does an engine connect to a transmission?
In motor vehicles, the transmission generally is connected to the engine crankshaft via a flywheel or clutch or fluid coupling, partly because internal combustion engines cannot run below a particular speed.
How much does a diff rebuild cost?
If new gears are needed the price can be at least $1,500. Going to the worst-case scenario, if the differential is beyond repair, you’ll need the component to be replaced altogether. You can expect a rear differential replacement to cost up to $4,000.
