I've never really thought about this until today. When the wheels of your car stop turning, how does the engine keep running? I would think with your brakes applied, all the moving parts would fight and fight to continue to move until finally they all stopped along with the wheels. But obviously they don't, so what separates the engine from the wheels and keeps the engine going? The transmission? The differential? Something else? I tried doing a Google search and only came up with problems/repairs.
