DRIVETRAIN SERVICES

A properly functioning drivetrain provides power from the engine to the wheels to keep your vehicle running and get you to your destination. It’s that simple and that important. That’s why Jiffy Lube® offers drivetrain services, for two-wheel, four-wheel and all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles to keep your vehicle running strong and repair-free for as long as possible.

DRIVETRAIN COMPONENTS

The drivetrain typically consists of up to three components, all of which need fluid replacement at different intervals. The differential, a transfer case (in four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles) and, of course, the transmission. Your Jiffy Lube® Technician can tell you when the fluid in the various drivetrain components in your vehicle need to be replaced.

FRONT AND REAR DIFFERENTIAL SERVICE

A differential allows the drive wheels to turn at different speeds, which is necessary when turning your vehicle. Over time, operating temperatures and wear can cause the fluid in the differential to break down. Differential service with a fluid change can help avoid premature wear on the gears in the differential. Some vehicles have both a front and rear differential.

TRANSFER CASE SERVICE

The transfer case is a special gearbox found in four-wheel and all-wheel-drive vehicles. It sends drive power from the engine to the front and rear axles. In all-wheel-drive vehicles, the transfer case helps to shift power from one axle to another, depending on traction conditions. Lubricating fluid in the transfer case helps keep gears cool and turning smoothly. Replacing this fluid at appropriate intervals can help prevent premature wear and damage caused by contaminated or broken-down lubricants.
