The following schematic diagrams exemplify the SAE recommended method of illustrating automotive transmission arrangements. They were developed to standardize industry practice and facilitate a clear understanding of the functional interrelations of the gearing, clutches, hydrodynamic drive unit, and other transmission components. Two variations of diagrams are used: Transmission in neutral and in gear. For illustrative purposes, some typical transmissions are shown.
This document has been updated for improved clarification and for inclusion of latest six-speed transmission schematics
