Suspension & Drivetrain
Drive train & Suspension Services in Kalispell, MT
With gas prices rising, it’s important to make sure all of the components are working to make your car fuel efficient. A major component of good gas mileage is your Drivetrain, also known as your power train. This includes all the parts and systems that make your car go. The major components of this include the wheels, suspension, exhaust system, drive shaft, engine and transmission. Together, all of these parts work together to keep your car traveling safely.
When your Drivetrain is maintained, your engine works efficiently, resulting in a more fuel efficient car. Your drive train relies on your suspension system to relay the engine’s power to the wheels. As your vehicle travels down the road, the suspension system keeps the car in balance and absorbs shock from bumps, pot holes and other road conditions. If you don’t maintain your suspension system, it creates more than just an uncomfortable ride, it creates an unsafe vehicle.
Proper engine and transmission maintenance, as well as a maintained drive shaft and differential all work together to help your car work optimally. When your car has a worn steering and suspension system, it catalyzes premature tire wear and alignment damage, which also makes for a less fuel efficient car.
