Most common driveshaft problems

  • Noise - Driveshaft problems can cause vehicles to make noises. In some cases, a low squeal that gets louder as speed increases. When traveling at high speeds, the sound may disappear completely and then reappear when the vehicle decelerates. This is usually caused by a badly worn or damaged U-joint.
  • Vibration - When a driveshaft is damaged, the vehicle may vibrate. Sometimes the entire vehicle or parts of the vehicle, especially in the floor area, are damaged. At higher speeds, vibration often intensifies and worsens. Vibrations caused by tire problems usually occur during acceleration, while vibrations caused by driveshaft problems occur when the vehicle is moving or stationary.
  • Turning issue. In some cases, a driveshaft problem can prevent your vehicle's wheels from turning properly. When turning a corner, you may notice the wheels shaking. When making sharp turns or even U-turns, you may notice tire resistance. You may even notice problems when parking. Bring it in and we'll give you a free test drive.
  • Universal joint play - The U-joint, also known as a universal joint, wears out over time. On the negative side, when it wears out, the shoe will develop play, begin to bind, and eventually stop rotating properly. This problem has the potential to cause all three of the above problems. In most cases, the U-joints can be replaced. The most common cause of driveshaft failure is defective universal joints. However, our team of transmission mechanics, also known as experts, has your back.

you would never be able to tell any body work was needed! It is so nice to have found a place I can trust

I have had my car for 6 years and needed some minor body work. I also wanted a “detail” done to make my car feel new again. This was my first time working with this business. The work was done quickly and at a great price and my car has NEVER been this clean!! It’s beautiful —you would never be able to tell any body work was needed! It is so nice to have found a place I can trust to meet (actually exceed) my needs!! Highly recommend!!!

They took the time to properly assess the damage, and gave me options.

I was referred to L & D Auto by a friend of mine. I drive a BMW & was not aware of the faulty timing chain for 2012-2014 X3 models. When it broke, it caused significant damage. Baron BMW "assessed" the damage & told me I needed a complete new engine for 13K! I immediately had it towed to L & D. They took the time to properly assess the damage, and gave me options. Although it was still a costly repair, it was nothing like what Baron quoted me
