The Cadillac driveshaft performs a crucial function in your vehicle as part of the drive train, responsible for the transmission of the power produced by the engine to the drive wheels. The drive train components include the clutch assembly, the transmission, the Cadillac driveshaft, and the differential, among others. The transmission receives the torque power produced by the engine through the rotation of the crankshaft, transmitted from the flywheel through the clutch assembly to the input shaft of the transmission. The Cadillac driveshaft is connected to the output shaft of the transmission, through which the power of the engine is transmitted. The Cadillac driveshaft then passes the power along to the differential, which uses a gear reduction to slow the rotation before it is sent along to power the drive axle of the vehicle. This process allows the power of the engine to reach the wheels, enabling the vehicle to transport you through your daily travels. The Cadillac driveshaft extends the length of the vehicle, from the front to rear. This length makes support necessary to keep the Cadillac secure in its position. There is also a certain amount of flexibility necessary in the Cadillac driveshaft to allow it to move with the suspension system of the vehicle without becoming bent or damaged. These are provided with the use of a number of universal joints, generally two or three depending on the model, that provide a secure grip on the Cadillac driveshaft, while allowing just enough movement to flex with the action of the suspension.
