Automotive Driveline Service in 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.
