If you have experienced vibration of your vehicle while driving, chances are it could be due to driveline vibration, or the disruption in the operating angles of your driveline.
The driveline of your vehicle takes the power generated by the engine and transforms it into the rotation of the wheels, and therefore, the speed of your vehicle using torque. Your drive shaft must be strong enough to bear stress while avoiding too much weight.
Here are some tips for maintaining your driveline:
- Watch and maintain the proper level of transmission fluid
- Ask a technician at our store to inspect your CV and universal joints for loss of lubricant or excessive movement
- Bring your vehicle in for a test drive to check for any noises or vibration taking place during acceleration that could indicate a joint problem
