3 Drivetrain & Transmission Maintenance:

Reduces Wear

The transmission fluid ensures that the moving components are well lubricated to minimize friction that causes heat and ultimately wears down the parts. Over time transmission fluid becomes contaminated. The fluid loses its protective qualities and doesn’t effectively cool and lubricate the components, causing wear on the entire system and strain on the engine. Replacing the transmission fluid at the recommended maintenance intervals will reduce friction, ensuring all components run smoothly and last longer.

Prevents Overheating

When you take your car for routine transmission checks, the fluid will be topped off to the proper level or replaced if necessary. This will ensure all the parts are well-lubricated to reduce friction and overheating.

Improves Your Car’s Gas Mileage

When your car’s transmission properly works, you will save money on gas. Follow your car’s service schedule and factory-recommended maintenance intervals, and ask your Pitt Stop technician to perform regular transmission inspections and fluid replacements. A well-maintained transmission will reduce the strain on components and ensure your engine runs at its best, saving you cash at the gas pump

Drivetrain & Powertrain  Questions & Answers

Is the drivetrain different from the powertrain?

The drivetrain and powertrain refer to slightly different systems. Whereas the powertrain refers to all the components that make the vehicle move, including the engine, the drivetrain refers to all these components, excluding the engine. Despite this difference, “drivetrain” and “powertrain” are often used interchangeably.

Is the drivetrain different on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles?

Yes, the drivetrain system differs depending on which wheels in a vehicle receive the power from the engine. In particular, the system is much more complicated in an all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive set-up.

How does the placement of the drivetrain affect the vehicle?

One way the drivetrain placement affects ride quality is through its weight. In a front-wheel drive vehicle, the weight of the drivetrain being found up-front provides more traction on slippery surfaces, like snow, when driven at a lower speed. Conversely, the rear-wheel drive provides superior traction at higher speeds
