How Drivelines Work
A driveline isn't a single part—it's an assortment of components that transfer power from the engine to the wheels. It includes the driveshaft, differential, axle shafts, and wheels, which work in tandem to keep your truck moving.
In a diesel truck, the engine's power is transferred to the transmission, which then sends it to the driveline. As the driveshaft spins, the differential activates, distributing power to the wheels through the axle and enabling them to rotate at different speeds. Regular driveline maintenance is essential to ensure it continues to operate correctly and safely. Neglecting maintenance can lead to serious problems and expensive repairs down the line.
The differential is a critical component of any diesel truck, responsible for distributing torque to the wheels. Without proper maintenance, the differential can suffer from wear and tear, causing issues such as leaks, premature tire wear, screeching tires, and uneven power distribution. Like the transmission, it is important to regularly have your differential inspected and serviced every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. Inspection includes checking and replacing the differential's gear oil, as well as inspecting the gears and bearings for any signs of wear or damage.
