Auto's & line pressure?
Hey guyz, I understand how an auto works but only at a basic shift level. I know there is the sun and planet gears and all that, the bands & solenoids to hold the outer and inner gearings, etc..
But i dont understand this about line pressure? What does fluid pressure have to do with shifting gears? Dont the electric solenoids apply the bands and all?? What does the S5 solenoid do? Can someone please explain this too me?
