Drivetrain Repair Experts
Serving Vancouver WA | Camas | Orchards | Battle Ground
A vehicle’s drivetrain is a series of components that transfers power from its engine to its driving wheels, and drivetrain repairs run the gamut from straightforward clutch adjustments to major transmission overhauls and rebuilds. Drivetrain problems can be difficult to diagnose accurately and costly to repair, but they can often be avoided with regular preventative maintenance performed at a qualified and experienced drivetrain shop. The experts at All Transmissions & Clutches have been keeping the drivetrains of Vancouver residents working right for more than 30 years, and we have the experience and skills needed to prevent minor axle, CV joint, clutch and differential issues turning into major repair jobs.
Warning signs of axle problems include clicking noises when making turns and excessive vibration during acceleration. Checking and lubricating axle bearings regularly at a drivetrain shop and replacing them when needed can add years to the life of an axle and save vehicle owners money, but these inspections should be performed by experienced technicians familiar with the latest automotive technology and components.
The experts at All Transmissions & Clutches can adjust, repair, replace or upgrade all kinds of clutches. Adding more durable flexplates, flywheels, or throwout bearings can extend clutch life and improve performance, and minor adjustments to clutches and pedals could remedy problems like clutch slip and drag. Clutches slip when they disengage too quickly and they drag when they do not disengage even though the pedal is fully depressed.
CV Joint Replacement
The axles of front-wheel drive cars are connected to their transmissions, and CV joints allow them to move up and down and from side to side. CV joints are the reason that front-wheel drive cars can move and turn at the same time. They work under great pressure and should be checked regularly by a professional repair shop. All Transmissions & Clutches have been CV joint replacement experts for more than three decades, and can also rebuild the CV joints fitted to today’s more powerful and sophisticated front-wheel drive vehicles.
CV Boot Replacement
CV joints are packed with grease for lubrication and protection, and they are then fitted with flexible rubber boots to keep this grease in place. When CV boots become worn or damaged and this protective grease is lost, the ensuing buildup of heat and friction can cause serious drivetrain problems. Replacing compromised CV boots is one of the most common types of drivetrain repair, but inspections should be carried out carefully and by qualified technicians as signs of dangerous wear can sometimes be difficult to spot.
Differentials, which are the large humps in the middle of axles, allow the wheels on one side of a vehicle to move at a different speed to the wheels on the other side. Without this crucial component, wheels would lock up or hop during turns, and vehicles that develop these dangerous characteristics may require a new or rebuilt differential. The technicians at All Transmissions & Clutches have experience with the various differentials and they know how dangerous undiagnosed differential service problems can be.
