Dodge Driveshaft

The Dodge driveshaft is a critical component in the process that allows your vehicle to carry you on your daily commute and usual errands, helping to transfer the power produced by engine combustion to the drive wheels of the vehicle. The transfer of engine power is done by a chain of components that begins with the transmission, which receives the torque power of the engine from the engine crankshaft, transmitted between the two with the assistance of the clutch assembly. The Dodge driveshaft is connected to the transmission output shaft at one end and to the differential at the other. As the Dodge driveshaft receives the power from the transmission, it spins at the same speed to transmit the power to the differential. The differential then sends the torque power through to the wheels after using a gear reduction to slow the rotation. Several universal joints support the Dodge driveshaft as it performs its function, holding it securely enough to keep it straight and balanced, while allowing it just enough flexibility to move safely with the suspension system as the vehicle passes over uneven surfaces. This ability to flex keeps it in good alignment with other drive train parts as it operates, avoiding damage to the Dodge driveshaft and other components. The proper function of the universal joints is critical to the operation of the Dodge driveshaft, making their maintenance very important.
