Drivetrain Fluid Exchange and Replacement
Your drivetrain is what keeps you in control of your car. Without a drivetrain that functions properly, you may end up losing the ability to steer and therefore lose control of your car. There are certain aspects of drivetrain maintenance that you may not think about much but drivetrain fluid exchange and replacement is a must.
What is a Drivetrain Fluid Exchange?
Your drivetrain, also referred to as your driveshaft, is what allows your steering wheel to affect movement in your wheels. Without your drivetrain, your wheels would not move when your steering wheel is moved and therefore you would have no control or agency over the movement of your car. The drivetrain is often located in the transmission case of cars that are front wheel drive and in between the back two wheels on the axle for rear drive vehicles. When your steering wheel is moved, your drivetrain works to move the wheels of your car in response to that movement. The drivetrain is full of fluid that helps to keep the system lubricated and replacing fluid after a certain time frame or amount of mileage is going to keep your system working properly.
Why Have a Drivetrain Fluid Exchange?
An exchange is going to help you to keep your system still working and is going to help ensure that the fluid is free of dirt, debris, and metal shavings from the car running. It is necessary to keep this fluid clean to help make sure that your drivetrain is going to be responsive and work when you turn your steering wheel. Replacing fluid is a must and your car will have some sort of maintenance schedule that will tell you when you should have your fluids exchanged.
What Happens if I Delay a Drivetrain Fluid Exchange?
As your car ages and you drive it, the fluid in your drivetrain system can be used up and evaporate which means that it will not be able to efficiently and effectively lubricate the system which mean that your system is not going to be as responsive, as effective and it may mean that you lose some control over your car. If fluid is dirty or full of debris it can also make your car less responsive to your steering wheel making it harder to drive.
