Auto repair has come a long way in the past few decades, but as someone once said: “You ain’t seen nothing yet.”
Auto Mechanics and New Car Technologies
Auto mechanics have to be aware of emerging technologies with cars, as this Wikipedia excerpt shows:
Automobile propulsion technology under development include gasoline/electric and plug-in hybrids, battery electric vehicles, hydrogen cars, biofuels, and various alternative fuels. Research into future alternative forms of power include the development of fuel cells, Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI), Stirling engines, and even using the stored energy of compressed air or liquid nitrogen. New materials which may replace steel car bodies include duraluminum, fiberglass, carbon fiber, and carbon nanotubes. Fully autonomous vehicles, also known as robotic cars, or driverless cars, already exist in prototype, and are expected to be commercially available around 2020. According to urban designer and futurist Michael E. Arth, driverless electric vehicles—in conjunction with the increased use of virtual reality for work, travel, and pleasure—could reduce the world’s 800 million vehicles to a fraction of that number within a few decades. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile]. Hmm, we hope that the driverless car knows when it needs transmission repair.
Transmission Repair and Today’s Car
It’s entirely possible that the car of tomorrow won’t even have a transmission, it will have some other way of shifting up or down. However, that’s a long way off. For now, your car either has a manual transmission or an automatic transmission.
How often do you need to fix your car? The answer to that question depends on a lot of things. Some cars are obviously better than others. You don’t see a lot of Yugos around nowadays, for very good reasons. Whatever the make and model of your car, the right auto mechanics can make all of the difference in world.
