Your Drivetrain & Suspension Systems
The drivetrain is the system of components that generate the power to actually
move the car. Your engine, transmission, wheels, and drive shaft are all
parts of your drivetrain. When one of these components starts to fail
or to function incorrectly, it can have a dramatic effect on your car’s
Signs of an ailing drivetrain include
- Rumbling, grinding, or whining noises as you drive
- Sudden vibrations when you shift gears
- Transmission fluid leaks
- Transmission fluid that smells acrid or looks muddy
- Uncommon wear to the tires
- Recurring resonances
- Positioning problems
Your suspension system is also considered part of your drivetrain, and
it is integral to your car’s functionality. Your car generates tremendous
forces, vibrations, and inertia, and for the vehicle’s frame to
properly withstand them, it must be finely balanced. Your suspension system
provides this balance and ensures the smooth, efficient operation of your car.
Bad vehicle suspension can result in
- Unnecessary tire wear
- Alignment problems and damage
- Vibrations and noise
A healthy suspension and driveshaft system isn’t just important to
your safety and the integrity of your car, it’s also money-saving.
These systems contribute to fuel efficiency, which means more miles to
the gallon and fewer trips to the gas station.
