Unfortunately, many Tampa drivers and auto mechanics neglect one of the most essential parts of the car’s operation – the drivetrain system.
The drivetrain affects every other part of the car’s drivability. To help you take care of your vehicle, here are the warning signs of a damaged drivetrain.
Symptoms of drivetrain problems
A few symptoms will indicate a struggling drivetrain.
The signs of a drivetrain in trouble include:
- Vibrations or shudders
- Irregular sounds
- Any noises from the rear of the vehicle
- Turning issues
- Fluid leakage
- Malfunction indicator lights are on
There’s a misconception among Florida drivers that the drivetrain system lasts forever, or that the rear axle never needs servicing. Both are untrue and both could lead to significant damage to the drivetrain system.
Don’t put off drivetrain service until it’s too late. Schedule regular maintenance and inspections. With a checkup, you can fix minor issues before they become expensive problems.
