...sounds like you are explaining what it is to downshift...if an automatic will simply "float" awaiting acceleration...unless you've a "lock-up" transmission...or a special downshift mode (like the MINI has) on it's CVT...so to answer your question...one revolution of the crank equals approximately one revolution of the wheel...unless overdrive then perhaps 20% extra (5th gear or higher)~
