Clutches are needed for cars with manual transmission. However, they are no longer as essential when it comes to vehicles with automatic transmission. You see, AT cars, instead of a clutch, employ a device called the torque converter. A torque converter is a kind of fluid coupling that allows the engine to function while the wheels and gears are not in motion. This device is particularly useful when an automobile stops or brakes because with it, you need not turn off the engine while stopping or braking. The thing is, a damaged torque converter needs to be replaced at once. For a quality replacement, you can count on the BD Diesel Torque Converter. The BD Diesel Torque Converter features a machine billet stator meant to multiply torque; therefore, effectively enhancing the car's performance. Moreover, this item permits lesser heat and improved fuel economy. The BD Diesel Torque Converter comes with a stamp-forged steel front cover, furnace-brazed fins, and a triple amount of lock-up clutch material for added toughness and reliability.
