Common issues with the driveline

With your driveline being a very essential component to the functionality of your commercial vehicle, it is essential to gain an understanding and recognize when it may be having issues. There are a few common issues with the driveline that you could experience in your commercial vehicle, but thankfully, with regular inspection and maintenance, you can most likely avoid these issues from occurring: 

A lack of inspection of your driveline

Even a permanently lubed driveline still needs periodic inspection to prevent downtime or warranty issues. It is better to catch a problem or damage before it becomes worse.

Operator error 

Experience is key when it comes to operation of heavy on road equipment. However, nobody is perfect and accidents can happen out there. Popping the clutch or spinning the tires can wreak havoc, because when they catch, it creates a shock load that can result in either a fractured U-joint or driveline tube being twisted. This type of damage is visible and obvious to the repair technicians. 

If the vehicle hits an object that is stationary 

If the commercial vehicle that you are operating backlash up into a loading dock or hits a parking pole while backing up, these are even minor instances that can damage the driveline. This type of collision creates extensive shock and unexpected pressure on the driveline that can be catastrophic. 

Not enough lubrication 

Lubrication is key when it comes to your driveline. This part of the vehicle is constantly moving and needs to be well lubricated at all times. Using the wrong lube or even simple neglect can result in driveline damage. 

For all of your driveline repair needs, we encourage you to get in touch with our team at Quality Truck & Tire.

We had a wheel bearing failure on our fifth wheel camper on US 127 near Clare, Michigan at 2:30PM on a Friday afternoon. I called a couple of towing companies that were less than helpful due to the time and proximity to the weekend. I then called R Franke RV repair, whom we had used before, and they recommended QUALITY TRUCK AND TIRE. QT&R had a service truck to our assistance in 20 minutes and At their shop in under an hour.Quality Truck and Tire gave us outstanding service at a very reasonable price. I recommend them for your service needs in tha Clare area.

We had our 1996 motor home break down on the side of US-10. On a sunday which anlso was Fathers day. The amazing mechanic named Paul came out with the tow truck, and attempted to fix the issue for us. When we could not he towed us back to their yard, allowed us to plug in for the night to their electricity without charge and stay in our motor home while offering us a loner car if we needed to go to town. They got rite to us in the morning and managed to find the parts we needed rite away. These folks are amazing!

They fed me homemade cookies coffee and a comfortable lounge so comfortable I took a nap LOL. Charged me Only $75. A bunch of super good guys there to take care of you if you ever need help In their area. Thanks for all your hospitality!
