Drivelines - What Could Go Wrong?
When it comes to heavy-duty trucks, the driveline system plays a crucial role in ensuring that the vehicle operates smoothly and efficiently. The driveline system consists of several interconnected components that work together to transmit power from the engine to the wheels. Over time, these components can become worn or damaged, resulting in a range of issues that can impact the performance and safety of the vehicle.
