2010 Kia Optima Drivetrain Service

2010 Kia Optima Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Optima's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Optima’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2010 Kia Optima to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Kia's recommendations.
