DRIVELINE

See Bob Hunt Automatics For Any Driveline Repairs

A driveline is an integral part of any motor vehicle, as it enables the power from your engine to drive your wheels and thus, move your vehicle forward or backwards. A driveline and drivetrain are two very similar words, and cover similar areas of the vehicle. The driveline covers parts of the drivetrain, however excludes the engine and transmission, while the drivetrain itself can include the engine and transmission. The exact definitions of both can vary depending on who you ask, however.

The driveline itself consists of many different universal joints, which can sometimes become susceptible to damage if not regularly maintained properly. Most of these joints are sealed however and won’t require regular lubrication, however they should be inspected for cracks and leaks on a regular basis as it’s best to discover any potential issues before it’s too late. Remember, any driveline repairs that are needed will be much cheaper if you catch the problem before it’s developed in to a major issue.

A tail shaft is as essential part in any rear wheel drive vehicle. Essentially, it’s the shaft that transmits power from the gearbox at the front of the vehicle, right the way down the back to the differential. Without a tail shaft, your rear wheels aren’t moving.
Tail shafts are normally very reliable and can last a long time, however there are different parts that make up the entire tail shaft which could cause issues – things like bearings etc. One sign of a failing tail shaft is if you experience a shuddering feeling or sound coming from the rear of your vehicle, especially if you are travelling up a hill or incline.
