The drive shaft is a mechanical part that translates the power (torque) generated by the engine into usable force to propel the vehicle. It is important to diagnose and fix drive shaft problems early because no car can shift from idle to drive without a functioning drive shaft. Watch for these signs and get your car inspected at the first sign of trouble.
- Clunking noise when you accelerate or shift between drive and reverse.
- Low squeaking noise that intensifies with speed, may disappear at high speeds.
- Vibration from entire vehicle or floorboards while driving or stationary. Vibration is often worse at increased speed.
- Difficulty turning. Resistance or hesitation when driving around corners, making a u turn or parallel parking.
