Transmission, Drivetrain Components

The drivetrain comprises of the transmission, driveshaft, axles and wheels of a vehicle. Located behind the transmission, its role is to propel the vehicle forward by transferring power from the transmission to the drive wheels to control the amount of torque. Its components include CV joints (constant velocity joints), the differential, axle shafts and U-joints (universal joints). The universal joint, located along driveshafts, is a coupling that connects two shafts that are at different angles to one another and both rotate freely without excess friction. Drivetrain components vary according to type of vehicle. Manual transmission cars have gears, clutches, propeller shafts and rear axles. Automatic transmission cars have torque converters, transmissions, propellers and rear axles. The crankshaft and pistons work in unison with another component in the engine called camshaft. The main function of the camshaft is to open and close the intake and exhaust valves in order to create combustion.

The drivetrain consists of many different components like clutch kits, flywheels, differentials, drive shafts, axles, drivetrain fluids, transmission components, shifters, and transfer case components. It has two axle half shafts and cv joints. The shaft has to move up and down and change its angle. Torque is applied to the axle to rotate the wheel. You need to check the boots at the cv joints because they tend to tear after some time. If you notice grease spattered outside your car it indicates rupture and the cv joint has given way. For all quality drivetrain components reach out to PartsAvatar.
