What is a Driveshaft?
Your vehicle’s driveshaft carries the power of your engine between the transmission and the differential. If you know or suspect your car is having driveshaft problems, it’s important to get it fixed before the problem becomes worse and the driveshaft fails. The longer you put off a vehicle repair, the more you can expect to pay down the road as these types of problems only get worse when you continue to drive the car.
Indicators of a Driveshaft Problem
The driveshaft runs from the transmission to the differential, so it can be hard to distinguish sounds from these three components. There are some clear signs, however, that the problem is with the driveshaft rather than the transmission or differential:
- Squeaking under the car that begins as you accelerate
- Shuddering as the car accelerates from a stop or a low speed
- A clunking noise when your car shifts gears
- Knocking or clicking noises
- Roughness or vibration at any speed
Any of the above signs and signals may be an indication that you need a new driveshaft or driveshaft repair.
Expert Driveshaft Repair by AAMCO Expert Technicians
At AAMCO, our driveshaft repair experts understand how to properly diagnose problems anywhere in your drive train, and we will not begin a repair until we have identified what exactly is wrong with your car. AAMCO uses the most advanced technology in the automotive industry to accurately diagnose problems such as driveshaft issues, and we never begin any work on your car without your approval and without a full explanation of what is wrong with your vehicle. Also, there are never any surprises when it comes time to pay for the repairs because our highly trained, professional automotive technicians will keep you updated every step of the way. If additional problems are discovered, you’ll hear from us immediately, so we can explain what we have discovered during our repair work.
Sometimes, the problem is as simple as the driveshaft requires lubrication, the U-joints at either end of the shaft may need to be replaced, or the constant-velocity (CV) joint is the issue. It is only on rare occasions that the driveshaft itself needs to be replaced. Regardless of the severity of the problem, AAMCO will diagnose it, explain it to you and discuss repair options with you.
