Keeping Your Axles Turning

The axle is a critical component of a diesel truck, transferring the power from your differentials to your wheels. Therefore, regular maintenance and prompt repairs are necessary to ensure the proper function of your fleet truck’s axle system.

When it comes to keeping your axles in peak condition, the most important step is to perform routine inspections of the axle components, including the bearings, seals, and gears. These inspections should be performed regularly to identify any signs of wear or damage. Any damaged or worn components should be replaced immediately to prevent further damage and potential failure of the axle system.

If your fleet truck’s axle system does require repair, the Santin Auto & Truck Repair team has you covered. Axle repair requires specialized knowledge and equipment. We’ll begin by dismantling the axle to assess the damage and determine the appropriate repair steps. This may involve replacing worn bearings, seals, gears, or even the entire axle assembly in severe cases. If replacements are required, we’ll provide a comprehensive breakdown of what needs to be done alongside full quotes for the repairs.

Keeping Your Driveshaft Maintained

The driveshaft on your vehicle transfers power from the engine to the axles. Some trucks - such as those with four-wheel drive - may have two driveshafts. Typically, keeping up with regular maintenance routines on your driveshaft, such as replacing joints and fluid as needed, means your driveshaft will take you a long way without issues. 

However, driveshafts may need replacement if they become too damaged or are rendered non-functional. Symptoms of a driveshaft in need of replacement include clunking noises when accelerating or shifting between drive and reverse; vibration when driving; and squeaking when driving. Failing to service or replace your driveshaft as needed could cause other parts of the truck damage.

The Importance of Your Truck’s Differentials

The differentials also transfer power from the engine to the wheels.They help the wheels turn and time themselves properly and at different speeds if necessary. Usually, the differentials simply need to have the differential fluid replaced on a regular basis in order to function; by having the fluid replaced as scheduled or as needed, you’ll ensure that the differentials are lubricated properly and that there’s no chance of metal-on-metal grinding. If the latter does occur, this can not only contaminate the differential fluid but also damage the rest of the differential. If your differential needs to be serviced or replaced, you can count on the experts at Santin Auto and Truck Repair Center to diagnose and fix the problem quickly.

Esteban provided hands down the best customer service. My uhaul vehicle broke down and he was unable to fix it, it needed a tow. Esteban ensured I was safe and in a good place with uhaul sending a tow before he left. He even went out of his way to get me water and snacks since I have been on the side of the road for 3 + hours. There are good people in this world and Esteban is one of them. Amazing service and an even better human being.
