A drive train may be the least understood part of a vehicle. This is due to several factors, including the fact that the term “drive train” is often used interchangeably with power train and driveline. The drive train includes the transmission, the driveshaft, the axles, and the wheels. Simply put, it works in conjunction with the engine to move the wheels. The drive train system is an essential component of a vehicle and the transmission is an integral part of the drive train. The ASE Certified Master mechanics at Weber Automotive are thoroughly trained and experts at all components of your drive train. Learn about the parts below.
A clutch is a component of the drive train that engages and disengages the power transmission from the driving shaft to driven shaft. The clutch is located between the gearbox and the engine. During a gear change, disengaging is required and the clutch facilitates this disengagement. Clutches need periodic servicing and replacing.
When it comes to clutch repairs and replacements, you can count on Weber Automotive. We have engine experts who will ensure that all your truck or fleet clutch issues are addressed.
The differential is another component of your vehicle’s drive train. The differential lets your vehicle make turns with ease (remember, the different wheels of your truck travel varying distances when turning).
The differential should be serviced regularly. Your car or truck requires periodic differential repairs and replacement. At Weber Automotive, we offer differential repair, rebuild, or maintenance services for cars and trucks.
A driveline is made up of all the parts of the power train (the main components that generate power and drive your vehicle), but excluding the transmission and engine. The driveline, which is located after the transmission, changes depending on whether the vehicle is rear-wheel, front-wheel, or four-wheel drive.
With time, moisture, pressure, heat and load cause lubricants to breakdown leading to component failure and or worn out gears. This will result in noisy engines and poor vehicle performance. To solve driveline problems, you need to have worn-out lubricant and parts replaced. To have this done by experts, call Weber Automotive today. We will ensure that you experience smoother gear shifting.
A car's transmission adapts the output mechanical power from the engine to drive the wheels. It's purpose is to reduce the amount of revolutions made by the crankshaft by use of interlocking gears. The types of transmissions include manual transmission, automatic transmission, semi-automatic transmission, direct shift gearbox (DSG), TipTronic gearbox, and continuous variable transmission (CVT).
