In a vehicle driveshaft plays an important role in connecting the engine and drive wheels. Thus, it makes an effort and suppresses vibration when turning the wheels and suspension moving. All drive shafts are equipped with two joints. One joint is fixed and it is installed on the wheel side. Another one is movable joint and it is installed on the side of the differential. Both joints are jointed by a grooved bowl.

In addition to the suppression of vibration and noise, the main roles performed by the driveshaft are effect on the dynamics of the car, and therefore the extension of service, as well as the efficiency and optimization of its weight. Almost every day drive shafts are subjected to transformation, as car parts makers are constantly optimizing their products, improving both technology and material in the course of research.

Also, do not forget that modern drive shafts improve overall vehicle safety. New shafts are provided with a high torsion rigidity and increase the life time of a car at high speeds. If you have any problems with the drive shaft or joints it is necessary to replace this important spare car part. If you hear any noise when driving the car and at high speed or when cornering there is vibration, it is necessary to check the state of the drive shaft.

Of course, it is very expensive to order new drive shaft or joints in service centres. Moreover, you will need to wait for two weeks or even more until they will get your car part from makers. It is much cheaper to order drive shaft and other parts for your car - brake cylinder or fuel filter, in the Internet shop. All the more your order will be delivered much faster.

Malfunction of the drive shaft
  • mechanical damage or deformation of the drive shaft;
  • wear of halfshafts;
  • damage or wear and tear of the drive shaft joints;
  • damage to the drive shaft bearings.
Symptoms of the drive shaft faults
  • vibration under the bottom while driving;
  • roll to one side;
  • pulling to one side when driving straight;
  • wheel tramp;
  • leakage or foaming of transmission fluid;
  • problems with gear shifting;
  • slipping during gear changes;
  • noise under the bottom;
  • oil leaks under the car during periods of inactivity.
Causes of the drive shaft malfunctions
  • overloading the vehicle;
  • use of low-quality lubricants;
  • too abrupt starting and braking of the car;
  • looseness of halfshafts mountings;
  • ingress of dirt or foreign objects into the system;
  • clogging or damage to the gaskets and seals;
  • failure to comply with the vehicle operation rules;
  • a gap between the hinge and the core shaft;
  • aggressive driving style or systematic driving off road;
  • defects and faults of closing rings.

Checking the drive shaft status is a complicated task and is carried out in several steps. First, run a control test drive at low speeds (20-30 km/h). It is necessary to make several sharp turns in both directions. Abnormal sounds when cornering is one of the main signs of malfunction.

It is also possible to independently evaluate the structural condition of the shaft, its pollution and damage. In addition, you should also examine the seals, dust caps and clamps. Further diagnosis is necessary to be carried out at a service station. In case of excessive pollution it is required to clean the shaft and all the transmission system elements.

The drive shaft is part of the transmission, so its diagnosis is carried out only together with the other elements of the system. Complete diagnosis of the car suspension at a service station should be carried out every 15,000 kilometers.

Repair and replacement of the drive shaft

The drive shaft consists of a number of components, so at failure it is sufficient to replace only the parts that fail. Identifing the faulty part of the drive shaft independently without any special knowledge and tools is almost impossible, so the repair and replacement of parts is carried out in a workshop.

Complete replacement of the drive shaft is held at strong damage during accidents or excessive wear of the entire system.
