I believe it's called trans exle because its a tranversall gear box,meaning from side to side.where as the sr20det,jgze's type are called transmissions because the y ar from front to back of the car.regardless your transaxle is a transmission.one more point i believe i was leaving out is that a tranmission has the differential seperate from the gear box.someone correct me if i'm wrong.

NO. i don't know the exact difference but i believe the transaxle is used mainly for FWD and AWD. A transmission is used for RWD models. A transaxle also has a transfer case attached to it. once again don't know the exact difference but there are.

The difference lies in the fact that there's a transmission and a differential inside the transaxle unit, whereas standard tranmissions do not have differentials. A RWD relies on a differential inside the rear axle - FWD's and most AWD's have differentials in the transaxle to drive the front wheels.

As a side effect, most transaxles are mounted transversely, while most transmissions are mounted longitudinally.

1G DSM Manual has a transaxle?


The guy at the "City Garage" said the transmission was "sealed." So I take he is a dunb-ass and they I can flush and refill the transmission flid of my 1G DSM NTon-turbo without much hassle?

trans - axle is when the transmission and axle are the same unit

FWD is usually a transaxle

our AWD has a front transaxle and rear axle

most RWD have front transmission and rear axle
