HEAVY-DUTY TRUCK DRIVETRAIN REPAIR
YOUR HEAVY-DUTY DRIVETRAIN EXPLAINED
Your heavy-duty transmission is the first and arguably most important part of your drivetrain. Your transmission is a set of gears that are designed to optimize your engine’s power. In heavy-duty semi trucks, they’re usually manual and can have as many as 24 gears. Depending on whether or not your truck has multiple drive modes, your transmission may be mated to a heavy-duty transfer case. Both your transfer case and transmission need their fluid changed once every 30 to 60 thousand miles. The service interval may vary depending on usage of course..
DRIVESHAFTS AND AXLE SHAFTS
Your driveshafts and axle shafts are essential components within your drivetrain. Both are rotating shafts designed to transfer power from one component to another. Although these components generally last a significant amount of time, the bearings that allow them to spin freely may blow due to excess friction. In this case, they’ll need to be replaced by a trained professional. Fortunately, we here at Hook-N-Haul are trained experts. We’ll have your driveshafts and axle shafts replaced in a matter of moments.
Your differentials are an essential part of your drivetrain. Located on each axle that receives power, your differential diverts power from your driveshaft to both of its respective axles. Differentials come in three styles. An open differential is the most popular as it allows for a seamless flow of power to the appropriate wheels. Locking and limited slip differentials are more oriented towards off-road and construction-style locations, where traction is hard to come by and terrain is not as level.h3>WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE HOOK-N-HAUL
