2006 Kia Spectra5 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2006 Kia Spectra5

Your Spectra5 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Kia, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Spectra5 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2006 Kia Spectra5 to maintain its performance power. Follow Kia's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
