Garden Grove U Joint Repair
In rear wheel drive vehicles, a driveshaft is a crucial component in ensuring the proper rotation of the tires. This component serves as a bridge between the transmission and the rear tires, transferring the power generated by the engine to the tires. The driveshaft is held in place by U joints, which are spherical bearings that allow for flexibility in the driveshaft.
However, if the U joints are not properly lubricated, the bearings will start to wear down over time. This can cause the driveshaft to vibrate and produce a bumpy ride, as well as potentially create clunking or banging noises when shifting gears. The vibration and noise can also be felt in the seat or throughout the entire car.
The U-joints play an important role in supporting the driveshaft, which is subject to a significant amount of force. If the U joints fail, the driveshaft will not be securely held in place, resulting in increased vibration and wear. To avoid these problems, it is essential to keep the U joints well-lubricated.
There are several symptoms that suggest it may be time to replace the U-joints. These include: noticeable vibration in the seat or throughout the car, abnormal noises coming from underneath the vehicle, and the presence of red or pink fluid (transmission fluid) on the ground. In these cases, it is recommended to contact one of our certified ASE service advisors at Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove to have the U-joints inspected and replaced if necessary.
