Four-wheel drive trucks and SUVs allow you to go places that are all but
inaccessible to standard two-wheel drive vehicles. If you’ve ever
taken a four-wheel drive vehicle off-road, you know what it feels like
to confidently tackle roads that most other drivers wouldn’t dare
to explore. But have you ever wondered what components and mechanisms
inside the four-wheel drive system allow you to go virtually anywhere
and do virtually anything? Read this short post to learn more about the
primary components of a four-wheel drive system, and why it’s important
that you seek
transmission repair in San Jose from a shop that specializes in differential and transfer case repair
(more on that later).
Front and Rear Differentials
Vehicles equipped with a
four-wheel drive system have two differentials, one located between the two front wheels and one
between the two rear wheels. The differentials send torque from the transmission
to the drive wheels and allow for the inside and outside wheels to rotate
at different speeds. If you suspect any loss in traction when four-wheel
drive mode is engaged, you may need to bring your vehicle in for differential
repair. You may also need to come in for differential repair if you a
howl or whine during acceleration or rumbling at speeds over 20 mph.
The transfer case is the device that splits power between the front and
rear axles on a four-wheel drive vehicle. These devices allow full-time
four-wheel drive vehicles (all-wheel drive) to function properly on any
surface, and not just when conquering brutal off-road terrain. Some transfer
cases also contain an additional set of gears that provide
low range, which gives the vehicle extra torque and a super-slow output speed to
help climb very steep terrain. If you put your off-road vehicle through
its paces, be sure to visit a transmission repair shop in San Jose and
have your transfer case checked out before your next major off-road adventure.
