The Basics Behind CV Axle Inspection Services at Effingham Tire & Auto Center

The CV axle is a drive axle located between the drive wheels. Its role is to deliver consistent power to the wheels as they traverse various types of terrain. The CV axle is attached to the wheels by CV joints. The inner CV joints connect the transmission to the CV axle while the outer CV joints connect the CV axle to the wheels. The CV joints connect the CV axle to the wheels, and deliver power while maintaining a constant velocity. The CV axle assembly—the axle shaft, CV joints, and CV boots—is designed to deliver flexible power to the wheels. This means that the axle is able to transmit required levels of torque to the wheels regardless of the angle of the axle. At first, CV axles were commonly used in front-wheel drive vehicles, but today CV axles are also common in rear-wheel drive vehicles.

Why Should You Have CV Axle Inspection Services Performed at Effingham Tire & Auto Center?

Recognizing potential problems early can help prevent more expensive and expansive repairs on your CV axle. Trouble turning and resistance from tires while maneuvering are signs of CV axle issues. A bad CV axle will emit noise, such as squeaking that increases with speed. Vibrations that increase with speed and vibrating floorboards are also signs that your CV axle should be inspected by our service staff. While an inspection of the CV axle is centered on checking the axle, our inspectors may find problems related to CV joints or CV boots. Because the CV axle components combine into one working assembly, reviewing proper working conditions for all components is extremely important for CV axle maintenance. Our CV axle inspection can help keep major repairs or replacements at bay.
