The Basics Behind Four Wheel Drive Inspection Services at Cowden Automotive

Four wheel drive allows a vehicle to supply power to all four of its wheels. Drivers depend on four wheel drive systems to give them better traction on snow, ice, and off-road terrain. Vehicles with 4WD can be full-time or part-time. A part time 4WD system can be engaged and disengaged as desired by the driver and is designed to be used under conditions where poor traction is an issue. Standard full-time 4WD systems consistently deliver power to all four wheels, and can be operated while driving on any type of surface. The goal of a 4WD system is to send torque to the wheels to prevent slippage. A four wheel drive system is composed of various parts. These include the differentials, hubs, and the transfer case. A transfer case is responsible for delivering power to both the front and rear axles, while hubs help secure the wheels. To keep a 4WD vehicle performing as intended, drivers should watch over the different parts of the system and have them routinely inspected during a 4WD service.

Why Should You Have Four Wheel Drive Inspection Services Performed at Cowden Automotive?

We understand the importance of having and maintaining an operable 4WD system. Our staff knows that transfer cases deal with a high amount of heat and friction that often negatively affect the fluid used in the operation of the gears of this component. If the fluid in your transfer case is contaminated, our 4WD inspection service can help. Our service staff will also inspect or examine the gears, shafts, and hubs on your vehicle. Faulty hubs can prevent a part-time 4WD vehicle from switching between driving modes. If you experience any problems engaging or disengaging from a part-time 4WD vehicle, or you suspect the time for a checkup has arrived, give us a visit for a four wheel drive inspection.
