As part as our commitment to being a one stop shop for all transmission issues, Everett Transmission offers our clients Drivetrain service. Your drivetrain is a crucial aspect of your vehicle but oftentimes is a lesser known part of your car, truck, or SUV. In this blog we will take a look at what a drivetrain is, and what goes into servicing it!
What Is Your Drivetrain?
The drivetrain is a group of components that deliver power to your driving wheels. Some times mistaken as the power train of a vehicle, the drivetrain is actually PART of the power train, along with the engine or motor.
So how is this all connected to your transmission? Well, it is literally connected by a piece called the driveshaft. The driveshaft is a long tube of steel that is linked to a car’s transmission at one end and with the wheels at the other end. Essentially, your drivetrain is what is transferring the power from your transmission, and ultimately helping to power your vehicle.
What Is Drivetrain Service?
A drivetrain typically consists of the differential, a transfer case, and of course, the transmission. Drivetrain service can include a differential, which allows the drive wheels to turn at different speeds. Transfer case service includes adding lubricating fluid in the case to help keep gears cool and turning smoothly. Having this done at appropriate intervals will help prevent premature damage caused by broken-down lubricants.
The Driveshaft and U-Joints can also be serviced during drivetrain service.
