Driveline Repair

Driveline Repair

Your vehicle’s drivetrain is what puts the engine power to the wheels.  As your engine works, the drivetrain distributes this energy to your wheels evenly.  Having your drivetrain in optimal condition retains the vehicle’s longevity, performance, and safety. 

It is highly recommended to service drivetrain fluids and filters within the proper time frame, as poor maintenance can lead to costly repairs down the road.  That’s never fun.

Transmission Fluid and Filter Service

Common drivetrain services include:

  •       Transmission fluid and filter
  •       Transfer Case and Differential fluid
  •       CV Shaft and Boot replacement
  •       Axle balancing and replacement

Replacing your transmission’s fluid and filter is the best way to keep your vehicle running smooth for years to come.  We recommend following the manufacturer’s service interval or replacement every 60,000 miles / 3 years. 

Servicing your transmission involves replacement of the fluid in the oil pan and filter when available.  During this process we will inspect the condition of the used oil to ensure no surprises are down the road.  We only use the manufacturer’s specified fluid as this is the best may to retain the transmission’s performance and longevity.

No.  Even though some manufacturers advertise lifetime fluid life, this is simply far from the truth.  All fluid breaks down overtime and requires replacement.  Worn transmission fluid loses its ability to protect sensitive transmission components from normal wear and tear.  

We hope to service your transmission before you see any symptom as this may result in irreversible damage to sensitive components.  Nevertheless, common symptoms of needed service include:

  •       Hard shifts
  •       Clunking sound when shifting or accelerating
  •       Hesitation when accelerating
  •       Winding and growling noise when driving
  •       Vehicle won’t shift out of park

It is recommended to follow the manufacturer’s service intervals and to have our trained technicians examine the condition of the transmission fluid during normal service.

This symptom relates to the CV shaft bearings being worn and near failure, which will need a replacement.  This is a common service as normal driving and wear and tear leads to these bearings failure.
