Drivetrain Maintenance and Repair Services

Critical Repairs From Our Skilled Auto Service Experts

Your suspension and drivetrain are two of the most important systems in your car. Your suspension is responsible for keeping all four wheels on the ground at all times, while your drivetrain is responsible for keeping those wheels rolling when you press the gas pedal. Issues with either one of these systems can be serious, and that’s why our certified technicians are here to help you.

What to Expect With a Drivetrain Service

1. Schedule Your Appointment

Whether scheduling online or over the phone be sure and let us know what you're experiencing so we can provide fast and accurate service advice.

2. Diagnostics and Inspections

Drop off your vehicle and the shop will get to work with inspections and diagnostics using the same equipment as the manufacturers to determine issues and next steps.

3. Digital Vehicle Inspection Report and Estimate

Following the diagnosis we will text you a digital vehicle inspection report, containing pictures and videos of our findings and recommendations.

4. Review and Approval

A service advisor will reach out to walk you through the findings and recommendations to determine how you would like to proceed, or you can approve work directly in your DVI.

5. Work Performed or Scheduled

Most work can be completed immediately, or scheduled based on parts and customer availability.

There’s more ways to save money on gas than at the gas station. Clean filters and properly inflated tires help to keep cars running more fuel efficiently.

More about a Drivetrain

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 performance.

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
