What is the Drivetrain?

The drivetrain is a critical component in vehicles, consisting of the transmission, driveshaft, and axles, which work together to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. It's crucial for delivering optimal performance and ensuring vehicle safety and reliability. Maintaining the drivetrain in prime condition is essential to avoid operational failures and ensure smooth, efficient power transmission. It saves costs by minimizing the risk of breakdowns and enhancing the longevity of the vehicle.

The Importance of Differentials

Differentials facilitate smooth turns by allowing the inside wheel to rotate faster, enabling sharper maneuvers. When engaged, differentials direct engine power directly to the inside wheel during a sharp turn with the concept of “the path of least resistance.” The vehicle’s weight shifts to one side, allowing for high-speed cornering with enhanced stability and control.

Recognizing differential issues early can save a ton of hassle. Uneven wear, noises, or vibrations are telltale signs of trouble brewing. Addressing these promptly can prevent further damage and keep your truck rolling smoothly, avoiding the path of least resistance to more significant issues. Lubrication is also essential as the gears can quickly overheat. 

Why Bearings Are Essential 

At Harrison Diesel, our mechanics frequently employ bearing packers to prolong the life of bearings and re-lubricate the rollers to ensure optimal spin. These packers effectively lubricate the races, rollers, and bearings in a sealed environment to avoid contamination, a crucial process as bearings require regular lubrication to mitigate friction. Drivelines must transfer power from the engine and transmission to the axle with the driveshaft. Without bearings at the ends of every axle, the axle shaft would overheat in minutes and halt all power to the wheels. 

Symptoms of a compromised bearing include:

  • Overheating due to inadequate lubrication or elevated operating temperatures.
  • Play in the wheel, evidenced by noticeable wheel wobble or rim movement when lifted or shaken.
  • Grinding noises, persistent scraping, or grinding sounds during wheel rotations.
  • Visible grease leakage is observable when the tire bore appears stained.
