ENGINE-TRANSMISSION TOTAL CONTROL OUTLINE


BHE051318901T15

Features

• The clutch engagement pressure is maintained in an optimal range due to engine output control when downshifting to provide improved shift quality and assist shifting at high engine speeds.

Operation

• During downshifting, engine output torque variation is converted to signal form by the PCM, and input to the TCM, which optimally controls clutch engagement pressure accordingly.

• Smooth shifting is achieved at high engine speeds due to the effective reduction in engine output torque.
