2016 Ram 3500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2016 Ram 3500

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 3500's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Ram, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your 3500’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2016 Ram 3500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Ram's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
