Do You Need Drivetrain Repairs?

How do you know if your car’s drivetrain needs repairs? The drivetrain in a rear-wheel drive vehicle consists of multiple components, including the transmission, drive shaft, and differential. In a front-wheel drive car, the transmission and differential are combined into a part called the transaxle, and a half-shaft replaces the drive shaft.


Now that you know the different parts of a drivetrain, here are the signs that something is wrong with one or more of these parts:

  • Difficulty shifting
  • Lag when accelerating
  • Loud clunking, rattling, or scraping noises
  • Smoke coming from tailpipe
  • Vibrations underneath car

Note that some of these signs have multiple causes, so just because you notice one of these signs doesn’t necessarily mean you have a drivetrain issue. Our mechanics can determine the exact cause of your car’s strange behavior.
