What Does the Drivetrain Do?
A typical drivetrain contains the following components: engine, transmission, propeller shaft, driveshaft, tire, differential. How do these all work together to make the drivetrain work? That transmission regulates power and torque sent to the wheels, the differential regulates the directional driver force and allows the tires to move at different speeds for situations like cornering. The driveshaft works as an intermediary, moving power between the differential and the tires. All of this is made smooth thanks to many fluids that keep everything running as it should, which also need to be kept up on.
How Often Should a Drivetrain Be Serviced?
It’s a little bit harder to point to exactly when you need drivetrain service, as there’s so many different parts working within the system, and each with their own lifespans. As well, how you drive your Toyota and where you drive your Toyota can greatly contribute as to when you may need service, differing from someone in a different model and location. If you feel anything “off’ with your drive, especially as it pertains to your wheels, tires, cornering and general drive of your vehicle, it would be wise to get an inspection. Our Upper James Toyota team can easily spot issues, and advise from there.
