Common Drivetrain Issues

Leaking Differential Fluid

Your differential is a series of gears designed to distribute the power coming from your main output shaft to your wheels. Since your differentials sit quite low, they’re at a much higher risk of coming into contact with road debris and road contaminants. In succession, this increases the risk of gear fluid leaking from your differential. The most common place for it to leak is from your differential gasket. However, it may also leak from your drain plug and your axle seals. 

Warped Driveshaft

Your driveshaft is a long cylindrical component that connects your transmission and transfer case to your differentials. Whether it be due to road debris or excess strain on the shaft, this driveshaft may warp over time. In some cases, its bearings may even blow and need to be replaced. Without a properly functioning driveshaft, no power will reach your wheels, hence the importance of its maintenance and repair. Want to get your driveshaft repaired or replaced? Call today.
