Do we not have a duplicate for a generic question like this? I’ve seen many, but did not know which one would the better to pick for a duplicate vote.

What was the reason for the downvote? Sure, the answer can be improved, but is it factually incorrect? If so, elaborate.

comment Toyota FJ Cruiser transmission problem
But was there a reason for them to go bad? Is it a common malfunction (bad design), or does it have to do with poor maintenance or special operating conditions? Again, what exactly do they do?

comment difference between mechanical and hydraulic clutches
@DustinDavis, from the physics standpoint, the liquid, for the purposes of this application, is considered as “incompressible”. Therefore, as soon as the pressure applied on one end of the pipe, liquid instantaneously transfers that force over to another end. It is like pushing a stick, except that stick is wet, and can follow elaborate route.
