The Granbury Driver’s Ultimate Guide To The Drivetrain: 7 Symptoms To Look For

Know the symptoms of a compromised drivetrain system

Actually, your vehicle’s drivetrain system does need regular service. When you keep up with recommended services, you help the system last longer. If you want your car to last, it needs to be taken care of the right way.

At Christian Brothers Automotive Granbury, we’re clearing up the confusion around drivetrain service. Our ASE-certified technicians have put together a list of the top seven signs and symptoms of drivetrain trouble. Call our Granbury car repair shop for a drivetrain inspection if you ever discover one of the following signs.

1. Odd noises

If you ever hear a “clunking” noise, or any strange sounds, your car should be checked out immediately.

2. Shudders/vibrations

If your car is shaking, vibrating or shuddering in an unfamiliar way, the drivetrain may be damaged.

3. Slipping transmission

Many Texas drivers don’t realize the transmission works with the drivetrain. If one is in trouble, it’s possible the other is, too.

4. Fluid leaks

Leaking fluid is never a good sign, but a red fluid leak could mean a drivetrain or transmission problem.

5. Strange smells

If you’ve discovered a weird smell while the car is running, there could be an unidentified fluid leak.

6. Shifting problems

Your drivetrain is also tied to the gearshift. Schedule a drivetrain inspection if you notice any shifting problems.

7. Malfunction indicator lights

Call our Granbury auto shop any time the “check engine” light, or any malfunction indicator light, turns on.
