Drivelines, also called drive trains or drive shafts, provide torque to the axles that allows you to turn your wheels on asphalt. If your driveline isn’t working the way it should, bring your truck to us or call our 24-hour mobile repair unit so we can come to you and fix it.
Your truck’s driveline isn’t one of the most visible systems, but it is one of the most vital. The driveline is exposed to constant twisting, pushing and pulling in all directions. It also takes a beating from rocks, sand, road salt, and other corrosive substances when you drive. This causes a lot of wear and tear over time, and parts of the driveline can become loose or break completely.
Downspeeding, which is speeding up the rear gear ratio to decrease engine speed in an attempt to increase a rig’s fuel efficiency, is becoming a more common practice. It might save you some money on fuel, but it also places greater stress on your driveline and might cause you to need more frequent repairs.
Signs of Trouble
There are some signs to be aware of that could indicate driveline problems. Increased vibration is the main symptom to watch for. This can affect various parts of your truck or the whole truck. The vibrations get more intense over time as more damage is done to the driveline.
Unusual sounds are another sign that trouble is brewing. Listen for low squeaking and squealing noises that get louder as your truck goes faster. If your truck is showing these symptoms, it’s time to bring it to SOS Truck and Trailer Repair so that we can inspect it, identify the problem, and get you back in business as soon as possible.
