Maryland Axle/Drive Shaft Repair

If you drive a rear-wheel-drive or a four-wheel-drive car, your car has a drive shaft that connects the transmission to the rear differential. Front-wheel-drive vehicles have a transaxle instead of a drive shaft. And all cars use an axle shaft (or a CV axle) to connect the drive wheels. All of these shafts and axles form a framework at the bottom of your car that is very tough, but delicate at the same time. If you are experiencing any issues with your drive shaft or CV axle, feel free to bring your car to one of our four locations in Columbia, Clarksville, Glenwood or Gaithersburg for an inspection.

Axle Shaft and Drive Shaft Problems We Fix

Drive shaft and CV axle are major components of your vehicle that are crucial to the overall drivability and performance of your car. If you are able to catch the following problems early through a timely inspection or preventive maintenance, you can avoid major repairs in the future:

  • Shudder during acceleration
  • Clunking sound during shifting
  • Unusual vibrations
  • Squeaking or knocking sounds

All of these signs may indicate that a drive shaft or a CV axle is broken or severely damaged. Such damage may occur from wear and tear or driving over rough surfaces. In either case, it’s important to get your car to your Maryland mechanic right away before the shaft or axle breaks completely, making your vehicle undrivable.

Schedule your axle or drive shaft repair appointment today at one of our locations in Gaithersburg, Columbia, Glenwood or Clarksville.
