2012 Honda Ridgeline Drivetrain Repair & Service

2012 Honda Ridgeline Drivetrain Service

Your Ridgeline’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Honda, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Ridgeline and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Honda Ridgeline to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Honda's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Your Honda Ridgeline may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning.
