Driveline Preventive Maintenance

In order to ensure the longevity and reliability of the driveline system, it is important to prioritize preventive maintenance. This will not only minimize the chances of unexpected breakdowns, but it will also reduce downtime and keep your business operations running smoothly. General driveline preventative maintenance often includes:

  • Inspection of key components: This involves a thorough examination of the axles, driveshaft, and differential for signs of wear and tear, leaks, rust, and other potential issues.
  • Fluid and oil service: This involves changing the oil and fluid in the differentials, transmission, and transfer case. Over time, these fluids can degrade, reducing their ability to absorb heat and increasing the risk of breakdowns.
  • Bearing replacement: Bearings are a critical component of the driveline system and, over time, they can become worn and damaged. Regular inspections help to identify any potential issues and prevent them from becoming more serious.
  • Shaft alignment: This involves ensuring that the driveshaft and axles are properly aligned to reduce the risk of wear and tear and increase the efficiency of the driveline system.
  • U-joint replacement: Universal joints, also known as U-joints, can become worn over time and may require replacement to keep the driveline system functioning efficiently.

Routine Oil and Fluid Service

As a critical aspect of the driveline system, regular oil and fluid service is a key component of preventive maintenance. Differentials, transmissions, and transfer cases all require routine fluid changes, typically every 30,000 to 60,000 miles depending on your class of vehicle and manufacturer’s recommendations. Over time, the oil or fluid in these components can degrade, reducing their ability to absorb heat and leading to increased friction within the system.
