We take daily questions from Colorado drivers wondering when to schedule maintenance and repair service.
One of the most fundamental components of your car’s operation is the drivetrain system. This crucial systems affects every part of the vehicle’s drivability and requires regular maintenance to stay in excellent condition.
Unfortunately, this system is often overlooked. To fully understand proper care of the drivetrain, here are the main signs your car is in trouble.
Symptoms of drivetrain problems
When your drivetrain is faulty, there are a few key signs to look out for.
The signs of a compromised drivetrain include:
- Strange or unfamiliar noises
- Shudders and vibrations
- Shifting problems
- Strange odors
- Leaking fluids
- Malfunction indicator lights are on
- The “check engine” light is on
If you drive a car that is regularly used for towing, this activity is considered a “severe operating condition” and the drivetrain, as well as the cooling system, will require more frequent maintenance.
Although your drivetrain will not last forever, your partners at Christian Brothers Automotive Woodmen & Powers can advise you in ways to maximize the lifespan of this system. Check your car owner’s manual to know the right intervals to schedule a drivetrain inspection or maintenance service with our Colorado Springs car shop.
