Automotive Driveline Repair Service in Calgary, Alberta

Mechanic doing Pick Up Truck Driveline Repair Service at Foothills Group

Your truck’s driveline is made of a number of components that work together to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. The engine creates power, which is modified by the transmission to deliver energy. The driveline moves the power from the transmission to the wheels, turning all that energy into motion which controls the rotation of your wheels. If any part of your driveline becomes damaged, your vehicle isn’t going to move anywhere anytime soon.

What parts make up the driveline?

Your truck’s powertrain is made up of the components from the engine to the wheels. So part of your powertrain is the driveline. The driveline includes everything in the powertrain except the engine, with the main component being the driveshaft. Just as it sounds, the driveshaft is a long rod and it is what connects the transmission to your vehicle’s wheels. 

What does a driveline service involve?

At Foothills Group, our certified technicians are trained to inspect, diagnose and correct any driveline issues. Our thorough and affordable service will have you back on the road, driving with constant, smooth power. Our driveline services involve a detailed inspection of your driveline transfer case and the removal of the old contaminated fluid. This is then replaced with manufacturer-approved driveline fluid. In addition, our team is experienced with the repair and maintenance of all your driveline components, including: 

  • Axles
  • Bearings

It’s generally recommended to have your driveline inspected every 30,000-60,000 miles. At Foothills Group, we are experts in Ford, Dodge and GM trucks and SUVs and we’ll work with you to advise on the best service options, keeping in mind the manufacturer recommendations for your specific truck.
