Drivetrain Repair in Utica, NY
The drivetrain in your vehicle is a very complex system that spans the length of your car, starting in the engine and connecting through the axles which move the wheels. The drivetrain contains the transmission, drive shaft, differentials, CV axles and joints, and more. Clean fluid is extremely important when it comes to keeping these components well lubricated to protect against metal to metal contact.
A common issue with the drivetrain is cracking rubber CV boots which can happen due to age. This causes the grease in the joint to leak as the axle spins. Leaking differential fluid is another major cause of failure. The oil seals and gaskets in the drivetrain help keep fluid inside the gearbox where lubrication is needed. If the fluid gets low, the gears can be quickly damaged and repair will be needed.
Here are some of the common symptoms that can indicate a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain:
- Clunking noises when accelerating, decelerating, or shifting gears
- Grinding or clunking sounds when turning
- Whining noise that gets worse when driving at faster speeds
- High pitched noises
